SYNDROME 81: Béton Nostalgie: LP

A collection of singles and splits from Syndrome 81 out of Brest, France. Tough as rusty nails punk and oi but with dark undertones, specifically on the song “Pulsions Électriques,” which has much more of an afterhours club/post-punk feel to it. Whether it’s fist pumping anthems like “Noublie Jamais” or a cover of Negative Approach’s classic “Nothing,” (reworked in French as “Que Dalle”) Syndrome 81 accurately hit every mark with ease. If you’re fond of No Hope For The Kids, Rixe, and Blitz then you’re gonna be stoked. –Juan Espinosa (Black Water)
