INSTANT AGONY: Out of the Eighties: CD

Four singles and a demo, spanning the years 1981-84 in all, from another English band I’ve never heard of before. They’re pretty speedy as far as English bands at the time go, landing in sound somewhere between early Exploited and the Partisans, and they’re apparently still together. It’d be nice to see if they’ve been able to maintain this much edge and aggression after all these years. Barry, if you’re reading this, the original singles were released on Half Man Half Biscuit records. Neat. Good stuff.
