I don't know exactly how to describe this band, but Austin's SIGNAL LOST brought something to early '00s punk that was important and lacking. The influences might have been drawn from older punk sounds, but the manifestation was urgent from the very start. As great as this 2003 demo is, it is just a taste of the two superb full length records that this band left us with before they parted ways (2007's Prosthetic Screams is undoubtedly one of the most overlooked DIY records of that decade). These songs eventually made it onto Children Of The Wasteland in a more mature form, though there's a purity to these versions that I still endorse. Members now play in CRIATURAS and ARCTIC FLOWERS, in case you need extra incentive.
