Shriekback

Paul Mathur, Blitz, July 1985

SHRIEKBACK are one of those groups who inhabit alternative pop's netherworld. Always there, a name in the new releases column, but never the one that you assiduously hunt for. Some of the singles, particularly last year's 'Hand On My Heart', have almost broken through to the chart masses and the current single 'Nemesis' deserves to do even better.
