Nam Wayne by Nam Wayne is garage rock, garage punk, low-fi, lyric-driven, dirtied up, DIY neo-romanticism with lots of reverb and tape compression. Genre: Rock: Garage Rock | Release Date: 2017

But a number of factors including tape equipment failures, drummer Tim Monaghan’s injury and coma, the economic downturn, a vinyl manufacturing bottleneck, and Nam’s meticulousness delayed its completion by twelve years until 2017, just long enough for the record’s resident Bush-era protest song Decade of Darkness to become a period piece and then suddenly become ominously relevant once again.
