What the...? Another forgotten late 80's/early 90's band that got swept under the rug, as I get older, I find more and more psych/shoegaze genre bands that simply never got the attention or respect they deserved, bless them all.
For Against is absolute one of those bands, who possibly deserved more recognition than others, especially in the states, but for whatever reason, never received it.
For all of the pitfalls of the digital music era, this band is a perfect example of what the internet can do for artists, giving them a real permanent legacy, and the attention and prominent recognition such artists really deserved.
December in particular is an album that has become a permanent part of my regular music rotation and influence, the guitar work is absolutely stellar, classic "new wave" 80's post-punk, edgy, melodic and appealing.
If you're a fan of classic Echo & The Bunnymen, Ride, Wall Of Voodoo, Joy Division, The Ocean Blue, The Pixies, et al..., you may really, really like this band.
I'm not sure what else to say, just listen to the previews here and you'll become hooked immediately, or not. It's that appealing.
