  • punk for ppl who cry a lot
  • I started with 'Plays Pretty For Baby' and then '13-Point Program', I think I prefer the latter.
  • Where to start? I want to listen to them because I can't get enough from Refused's last album, and I heard those guys totally ripped off The Nation of Ulysses....
  • First time I heard them was on the Fear of Smell 12" comp on Vermiform. Great instrumental track. Great comp in general, so it was an interesting way to be introduced to them.
  • The thing is, while NOU might not have influenced Refused directly, it's undeniable that it influenced International Noise Conspiracy, and well, Denys Lyxzen is the head behind both
  • i don't really see this refused-NOU connections. They diverge in many aspects, especially THE LEVEL :)
  • could the vocalist of this band sound any more like Guy from Rites or Spring? Not a bad thing. This rules!
  • marry me ian [3]
  • @XBujinKoenX: You shouldn't have had any to begin with, to be honest.
  • The Embassy Tapes are great, if you already love the band. Try either of the LPs.
