Into the garden.
Artery is a Sheffield post punk band that mainly operated from 1979 to roughly about 1985. They are one of the greatest bands I got turned on to while working in a record store for three years in the mid 00's. "Afterwards" compiles the bands singles and a great deal of songs culled from the stellar album "Oceans". Dark, brooding, and driving are all things Artery seems to achieve effortlessly with in every single song on offer here. Do yourself a favor and give "Unknown Pleasures" a rest and listen to this more often. John Peel used to play "Into the Garden" constantly on his show and sometimes the song would make multiple appearances within a single day. If that is not petrol in tank... you need to start walking.
