Listen to San Francisco’s Spiritual Cramp’s “Mass Hysteria” EP


Stereogum– Members of the San Francisco postpunk band Creative Adult have started up a new group called Spiritual Cramp, a punk band that pulls a lot of power from the early ’80s moment when punk and postpunk and goth were all still essentially the same thing. (They’re named after a Christian Death song) After releasing a demo earlier this year, Spiritual Cramp have just come out with their first EP, a sparse and evocative four-song joint called Mass Hysteria.


Mass Hysteria is out now at Bandcamp. Spiritual Cramp are heading out on tour with the reunited American Nightmare early next year.
