Horribly Wrong “C’mon and Bleed With”

Horribly Wrong C’mon and Bleed With Eradicator Records/Shit in Can Records The Horribly Wrong is a band almost lost to the annals of obscure midwestern punk history.  They were active for maybe three years (2002-05), played maybe 20 shows and barely strayed from their home base of Bloomington, IN.  They put out a 7” EP and sold through two pressings (the first in three days, the second in five).  Every time I would visit friends in...

I’m glad I bought it – you should, too… this will seriously make your life better. Originally released as a limited LP-only on Bubbledumb Records, Love Visions was picked up by 1-2-3-4 Go! Records and since then I’ve been hearing about Nobunny everywhere I go. Nobunny is super retardo low-to-no-fi catchy as all...
