SPIRITUAL CRAMP "Police State" 7"


Spiritual Cramp exist in a strange vacuum somewhere between David Byrnes oversized suit and a bar fight between a bunch of drunk goons on Polk Street in San Francisco. Citing sources from early Dub influenced Clash, Blitz and The Modern Lovers - San Francisco California’s Spiritual Cramps new EP “Police State” picks up a where their last EP Mass Hysteria left off, just a bit more torqued. Hate for the police, the government, the status quo and himself are reoccurring themes in Michael Bingham's lyrics while toxic bass tones go heavy with solid drums and guitars on the full upstroke or full downstroke depending on which way the wind is blowing. Spiritual Cramp, it's over. Spiritual Cramp features ex-members of Creative Adult, Fearing, Profile, and Primal Rite. “Danger, mystery and youthful restlessness have long been vital elements of rock ‘n roll. Spiritual Cramp communicates a state of unease in a seemingly at ease system, shaking things up in a way that only truly impactful art can. Their sound borrows from the past, echoes of late ’70s and early ’80s working-class rock and punk, and functions on the upbeat showcasing very bright guitars yet generating darker vocal rhythms and darker patterning.” Ghettoblaster Magazine
