Southside Stranglers - Too Much TV

Like I've said before I don't really care much for current bands playing the 80's hardcore/punk style. There's a few exceptions from time to time, likes Classic of Love, for example; who insert their own unique style into their playing.

Southside Stranglers plays a very formula based version of 80's hardcore that I can't really distinguish from other bands in the genre. There's mid gain power chords, mid paced/steady drums and some reverb ladden vocals.

"Which Way's The Door?" was the standout track for me due to it's darker sound and catchy hook chorus. If you're a fan of this genre then this may be just for you.

Listen to it here.
