Primetime Failure’s bio talks about how this band ‘always liked the wheel. So why reinvent something you can give a nice polish and put back on the streets?’

And that’s exactly what they do on their second album, ‘Memory Lane”. All eight songs come with an instant sense of familiarity if you have spent any amount of time listening to the EpiFat bands of the 90ies like No Use For A Name, Pulley and Good Riddance.

These songs are as big on energy as they are on melody while still packing a nice amount of crunch. The best thing about them however is how completely effortless they make it all sound. Throwback? Sure! But with songs like ‘Apologies, I Have Some’ and the title track blazing by, that can hardly be seen as a bad thing.


Track listing:

  1. All Hope Is Gone
  2. Apologies, I Have Some    
  3. Memory Lane    
  4. 19    
  5. Bricking The Lord    
  6. Broken    
  7. Watch It Burn    
  8. Brad

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.
