A horrible hack

Memory Loss 'Blackout' 7" out on Grave Mistake

added by Alex Deller on Friday December 9 2016 in New Releases

The vinyl debut from Richmond noisemongers Memory Loss is out now via Grave Mistake. Says the label: "On 'Blackout' you get four songs that mine from the golden era of early 80s hardcore punk and 90s-era noise rock but with a very unique and individual take. Each song is the equivalent of a dark path we've all been down, but never talked or written about. They’ve placed their finger right on the pulse of just how difficult it is to live in the age of anxiety and dread. If you like your punk with a general feeling of despair and disillusionment, look no further."
