My first encounter with Octobre 31 occurred in a Call Me Loretta show that they were headlining. They are three guys playing a Lagwagon-like pop-punk rock. With vocal harmonies. This ep, released on an American label features three songs, two in English and one in French (which sounds like a joke to me.)
The two songs sung in English, "I Remember a Time" and "Obsession" are two great, catchy songs with stunning vocal harmonies. Octobre 31 are ingenious melody makers with an impressive singer.
The only flaw in this ep is the lo-fi production but, hey, this is punk rock.
