Ferguson - In black and red

"Ferguson were a band that existed between 94 and 96 and consisted that were part of or went on to form bands like Crush My Calm, Mr. Willis of Ohio, Mine or Cataract. This one-sided 12” limited to 300 copies is something like their heritage released more than a decade after their break up. Ferguson play emotive hardcore between mid 90s screamo, revolution summer style and late Fugazi and taking into consideration that this record was recorded in the garage of one band member’s parents’ garage its sound is amazing."
