TV SUICIDES: Nerve Damage: CD-R

Oct 16, 2009

Lyrically it sounds like they’ve been immersing themselves in the same less obvious subject matter the early incarnation of the Misfits occasionally mined. Musically they like the mid-tempo middle ground of proto-hardcore and feature a singer that sounds like he’s been listening to Rollins-fronted Black Flag bootlegs circa 1983. They ain’t bad on the whole, but the recordings here sound like fourth generation mp3 rips of mp3 rips that weren’t that good to begin with, with that weird squeal-in-a-tunnel quality to the cymbals.
