For Against
Shel Life

Pioneering darkwave/post-punk band, For Against, have been plying their trade on-and-off since 1984. Shel Life was their 5th album and was originally released in 1997. They take their influences from early 4AD and Factory bands which was odd for a band from midwest USA at the time. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie....view item »

For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early &...view item »

For Against
Aperture

US post punk band For Against returned to the fold in 1993 after a five year hiatus with their third album, Aperture. Following in the footsteps of bands signed to Factory and 4AD, it could be argued that their take on darkwave foreshadowed bands such as Interpol. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie....view item »

For Against
Shade Side Sunny Side

Hey it's all getting a little gloomy round here. I have a CD by For Against (Shade Side, Sunny Side) which is once again an American band who used to sound like an overcoat rock band from 1981, really creepy guitars that got all cathedrally on yr ass and now years & years later they're still going strong, a little more serene and quite mature & con...view item »

Black Soap

CD singles. What is the bloody point? Who the hell buys these things? Ah! You! Well if you like these things (10 minutes of music on a disc that can hold 80) then you should get this one cos it's very good & isn't by The Manic Street Preachers which is the only band I can think of that still releases CD singles. That is a joke, not a very go...view item »

For Against
In The Marshes

For Against: 'In The Marshes' (Words On Music) Following hot on the heals of the Joy Division reissues we get what Mr Phil calls "Raincoat Rock", does he mean miserable? angsty? I think he means the 1980's, so this is a reissue of tracks dating back to 1985. Off-key singing, scratchy guitars, incessant drumming, slightly gothic intonations. Now w...view item »

Coalesced

For Against do a pleasant style of atmospheric indie pop that you don't find about much these days. Guitars jangling all over the place. Bit of Smiths here, Sundays there, Sarah Records right over there. You know the kind of thing. Coalesced is CD only...view item »

For Against
December

This week's other great record comes from 1988 and is a re-issue of 'December' by For Against. This CD is perfect shoegaze atmospheric misery pop - it sits somewhere between REM circa 'Chronic Town', Joy Division, The Chameleons, Pale Saints, Ride and Interpol's first record.  A lost raincoat-rock classic with d...view item »

For Against
Echelons

here is a new release on Words on Music. First up For Against. This dates from 1986 and is classic swirly angsty rock like early Factory, The Chameleons, The Cure and Interpol. If you like that slightly gothy indie stuff made by men in long raincoats then this is a lost classic you must snap up immediately....view item »
