Just Listen: Pretty Vicious – Move

Pretty Vicious – Move Words: Gary Lambert Raw, angry, buzzsaw guitars are the catalyst to make Pretty Vicious move through this snapshot of punk rock.  Move is so magnificently basic without sounding like it was recorded in a shed.

Festival Review: Bushstock 2018
