What I feel like I love most about Sympathetic System is that this sounds like something that I should be able to place, to pinpoint to someone who has done this before, yet I simply cannot find the name. It’s somewhere between Ted Leo, Jay Reatard and GG Allin.
This is a one man rock band that primarily sings and plays guitar (Though some other instruments are utilized) and the result is sometimes more of a mess than what you would think of from the aforementioned Ted Leo.
These songs were all improvised and recorded in one take, which is something I really like now, so that makes this all the more better for my ears. There is feedback, distortion and everything nice like that. The best noted comparisons I could make on some levels were the Nirvana demos on “With the Lights Out” and a Johnny Cash drunk dial.
