    Guessing: Nothing to Nowhere - Vancouver Spectres Hunger - Bristol Spectres? Like the second one better, but they're both pretty good.

    Nothing to Nowhere is fantastic. Saw them play with Bellicose Minds and Belgrado recently, amazing lineup.

    There's a fucking psychobilly band with this name? :( How fucking sad, since the screamo band Spectres are totally awesome, and psychobilly music totally isn't. [4]

    Spectres (the canadian ones) must be really a lot into Joy Division..the vocalist sounds a lot like Ian Curtis..and in songs like City Of Ghost it's impossible to don't think about them... btw,Last Days is really good! nothing that new,but still a really enjoyable tribute to the classics of english dark/post-punk (J.D.,Systers Of Mercy,New Model Army,Clan Of Ximox...) with a touch of (i guess) english anarcho/peace-punk (The Mob,Alternative,Zounds,early Chumbawamba,Karma Sutra,Dirt,Omega Tribe..)..Last Days was released in 2010..so i'm especting/hoping for something new (maybe with a more personal touch in their music) as soon as possible! : )

    When I saw the tags Post-punk/psychobilly/screamo put together I thought; "this must be the coolest band ever". Imagine the disappointment when I realized it was 3 different bands.
