Favourites: Shriekback with Nemesis

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was the 80s.

Formative years for me and so a number of my favourite tunes were found in this impressionable time. I read something recently about the changes one goes through in the teenage years that cause songs to be so embedded in our consciousnesses. I don't have the link handy, so you're going to have to trust me on this.

One 80s song that made a big impression on me is "Nemesis" by Shriekback. About a year and a half ago I had the good fortune to have convinced my band mates to play this song. It was just as much of a blast to play live as I always thought it would be. I love it when a plan comes together.

Not sure what's up with youtube/vevo but I don't seem to be able to embed their video for the song. I did manage to find this one. Hope you like it or have a good 80s flashback.
