Nineties post-punks the VSS may have only issued one full-length in their brief two-year existence, 1997's Nervous Circuits, but what a record it was. Synthesizing elements of hardcore, new wave and death rock, the LP was a terse and terrifying collection that unquestionably influenced acts like the Faint, Death From Above 1979 and the original punky lineup of Hot Hot Heat. If you missed out on the record's first pressing on Honey Bear Records, or the 2008 CD reissue on Hydra Head, the VSS are about to drop a deluxe double-LP reissue through Sargent House.
