The Shattered Dreams – 3 A-tracks E.P. 7″


A year and then some since I put this one in the posting queue, and then totally forgot about it ’til I found it yesterday while looking for something else among my 7inches. I played it again and realised that it’s actually better than I remembered it to be, despite two of the songs being way too long. And maybe I’m just tired, but to me they sound like they listened a bit to Dead Kennedys when it comes to vocal delivery as well as song structure, but not speedwise. An internet search gives more or less nothing, so if anyone out there remembers anything about these lads, please share your  knowledge. It seems like it’s pretty easy to find, and it’s cheap as well (think I paid $10 for it), so keep an eye open for it if you like it.

    The first track is far and away this record’s highlight. The art and design, particularly of the sleeve’s back, is quite different for a punk record.

    Nothing ventured…is really good! The voice is either love or hate. Makes me think of Personality Crisis which I love. More opera punk.

  5. Martin says:

    Didn’t really expect anyone to like this one, so I’m surprised over how well it went down.
