The 90’s post-hardcore torchbearers known as Garrison are back with ‘TV Or The Atom Bomb,’ a name that at one point was on the table as a viable option for the band’s name.

Not a new album, this compilation is instead a collection of B-sides, rarities and previously unreleased material that takes you on a trip that stretches over the band’s entire career from 1996 to 2004. For a compilation, this one feels surprisingly cohesive. Fans of Far, Gameface, Errortype:11 and of course Garrison themselves, will find plenty to enjoy on here from the jet-fueled opener ‘Let’s Fight’ and the Drive Like Jehu-esque ‘Twenty-Four’ down to the shoegaze shimmer of ‘The Only One’ and the band’s spirited take on the Smiths classic ‘Panic’.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
