Pink Daffodils



Pink Daffodils was around from 1996 to 1999. I only have one of their records, a three song ep titled Listless, released in 1997 on Sofa Records, but am aware of a single titled "Euroclydon" that was released. I don't know a thing about Pink Daffodils, but that they were a four piece, female fronted hardcore/punk band from Pennsylvania. The only reason I bought the album was because when I was like 13 I visited a weird Christian alternative store in the basement of a building downtown Cincinnati where they sold like classic Dickies pants and other alternative clothing, along with a lot of underground Christian music (not all hardcore or punk). I was browsing through their stuff, probably looking for something entirely different, when I picked up the Pink Daffodils Listless record and on the back saw a live picture with some dude sporting an old Earth Crisis shirt, and that's what sold me haha. Plus I really wanted that Earth Crisis shirt. As a matter of fact, anyone who comes across this blog and has, or knows where I can get my hands on, the old Earth Crisis shirt with the recycling symbol in the middle with "Earth" above it and "Crisis" below, on white or grey, please contact me via email. The only other thing I know of Pink Daffodils is that Jesse Keenan and Sarah Klein, both of Pink Daffodils, went on to form Red and Gold, with a sound more close to Fugazi and Rites of Spring. If anyone has any more information on Pink Daffodils, please comment!

  2. The only other info I can lend on the Pink Daffodils is that their singer is married to the singer of one-21.

  9. It's great what the internet can do. I found this site looking for a download of Euroclydon, as I didn't even keep a copy for myself. Thanks for posting! And the Red and Gold stuff shouldn't be too hard to track down even now, but I still have CDs and digital files of it, in case anyone is looking.
