well that wasn’t quite as difficult to make as I expected… although I couldn’t put a name beside every album, or else it would be a mass of text (especially with June of 44 and The Sorts), I put at least one per band and it should be fairly clear after that.
edit: added in Regulator Watts, The Mercury CD (1998)
note: I somewhat arbitrarily finished around 2002, since that is the year of the final Abilene and Sorts albums, although Frederick Erskine continued on releasing with Just A Fire and also his more recent project Freddie T and the People (good post about them here), while Christopher Farrall is listed as contributing to this Dischord project.
