Love and Hate...
DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979: Romantic rights
Yes, yes; a thousand times yes. This has to be the sexiest darn rock
and roll song I've heard in ages. Think along the lines of Foo Fighter's
"Low" or something by Queens of the Stone Age. Now add one
hundred percent proof sleaze, a whole lot of trash and charisma, a
couple of hardworking low-fi be-bearded Canadians et voila, you have
the band that everyone is talking about, not least because men, women
and beasts everywhere no doubt want to snuggle with them after hearing
this. At least, I do.
UNIT: Untied and United Vol. 1
I have reserved a special word for bands like this and that word
is abysmal. Me and this CD did not get off to a good start because
it was 37 tracks long. And then it turned out that barely any of these
tracks were any good. And what's worse is that each one sounded pretty
much the same. Still, I should at least be grateful that they favour
the "short is sweet" approach. I am being deadly serious
when I say music like this should have a health warning. I had to
bathe immediately after hearing it.
