Shame - UNIFORM

The first two UNIFORM records were more than exhilarating enough, particularly if, like the band themselves, you felt that humanity was rotting from the inside out, and that a sudden and robust apocalypse might be just the thing to sort it all out.

Garbers Days Revisited - Inter Arma

Covers albums are curious things. Wildly variable in quality and often a lot less revealing than we might hope, they can be cynical, lazy stopgaps or heartfelt and fascinating detours.
