Just as General Ulysses S. Grant oversaw the reunion of the North and the South, he adorns the new split 7-inch by Columbus rockers Hawkline and Headacher - not exactly warring factions, but diverse enough to keep listeners alert.

Just as General Ulysses S. Grant oversaw the reunion of the North and the South, he adorns the new split 7-inch by Columbus rockers Hawkline and Headacher - not exactly warring factions, but diverse enough to keep listeners alert.

Hawkline's side boasts a brawny, melancholy epic reminiscent of Sunny Day Real Estate's "Diary" era and a sweet little Evan Dando-quality pop tune from Greenlawn Abbey associate Eric French.

Meanwhile, Headacher's half rocks psych-punk style, with enough monster guitar riffs, thundering percussion and deep-throated vocals to satiate Crystal Antlers fans. Or consider them the post-hardcore version of Church of the Red Museum - less vaudevillian Murder City Devils influence and more grungy guitar muck.

The bands will perform after country crooning from Anna Ranger's Nathan Snell Friday at Bat Chapters, a DIY space behind Skylab at 56 Lynn Alley.
