Dark Days in London Town…and that’s a GOOD THING

February 5th, 2009

outcry collective band press shot visible noise thrash hits

Oh, to be young again. Drinking dangerous amounts of cider in fields, thinking that smoking was cool, and going seven shades of apeshit for any gig going – well, the few that would actually let us in when we were under 16.
