Your Daily Lick: The VSS

Nervous Circuits (Hydra Head Records)



Defunct Berkeley band the VSS originally released its sole full-length, Nervous Circuits - a nihilistic, gripping blend of hardcore, post-punk, and gothic electronics - on Honey Bear Records in 1997. The album led the way for groups like the Faint and Death From Above 1979, yet still feels edgy today - hence this welcome reissue celebrating its tenth anniversary.
