Author & Special Guests

We're back with another listener suggestion, this week tackling the 1994 debut album Comforter by Irish band Compulsion. Deemed "The New Wave of New Wave" by NME back in the early 1990s, Compulsion straddles the line between the American alternative rock of Nirvana and the Pixies, and the harder-edged guitar rock of Therapy? with a unique lyrical bent. Does it all work? Tune in to find out.
