Nervous Records


This is one of those 'lost psycho classics'. The sound is sorta like to Frenzy which makes sense since Simon Brand (vox, guitar) was one of the founding members and wrote Robot Riot. That means echo-heavy trebly guitars and lyrics that tend to stray away from horror movie cliches. Some songs are weirder than others like 'Psyclops Carnival', but Torment were never the typical band. The Mystery Men EP is a little heavier sound..
Simon Brand commited suicide in 1994, Kevin Haynes is still in Bristol, and Simon Crowfoot nowadays lives in New Zealand.
