NEW MODEL ARMY / The Love of Hopeless Causes (1993)
NMA have trundled on for twenty years without great success. They've been accused of being post-punk, folk-rock, alternative, etc, convenient labels that I've used myself from time to time, but it really doesn't matter about labels, they're NMA and that's all I really care about. The Hopeless Causes album is the band by-numbers; it's competent but not essential. Expect the usual guitar-driven slices of poetic musings about life, people, war and friendship. Don't waste your time watching the videos linked below, just put the music on another tab.
