• SORE POINTS - Self Title LP
This Vancouver bands rhythm section, phoenixed from the ashes of Nervous Talk after they decided that a drummer for local post punk act, Spectres, would look good playing guitar. Not caring in the slightest that he had barely started playing 6 strings. Mastering Ramones-esque guitar playing quickly was simple with people of like-minded prowess.
It helped that he didn’t look like some wimp. All members stand over 6 feet tall. Fashion over function works for most bands but there was something special right from the start with this 3-piece. This is punk rock based in it’s classic formation, with a modern edge to it that was attempted by bands like The Carbonas and surpassed by Sore Points on their 1st 7” on Hosehead Records.
