From Severe

Formed in Melbourne in 2003, the Australian post-punk group MY DISCO laid down the minimalist parameters for their future music the moment they named themselves after the title of a Big Black song. “1991” is taken from their fourth and newest album Severe. It marks MY DISCO’s switch to digital following their earlier analogue adventures in the studio with Big Black founder Steve Albini producing.
