Author & Special Guests

This week it's our third requested review of season - the lone self-titled release by Handsome. The 90s had it's fair share of supergroups, from Temple of the Dog to Golden Smog, but Handsome flew under the radar, featuring members of legendary bands like Quicksand, Helmet, Cro-Mags and Murphy's Law. Terms like hardcore and alternative are easy to associate to Handsome, but what about shoegaze and industrial? Like G.I. Joe, there's more than meets the eye (or ear) with Handsome, but does it all work?

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
