“Nemesis” is a song by English post-punk band from Kentish Town, London, Shriekback. The song was the first single released from the band’s fourth studio album Oil & Gold released in 1985. “Nemesis” peaked at #94 on the UK singles chart in June of 1985 the single did not chart in the US but did recieve heavy club play.
