Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead?
Surprising stuff, by Canadian band White Lung (facebook). Basically this is Melt-Banana oriented stuff, but a lot closer to a punk rock sound and mentality. Guitars smothered in an alienating effect, yelping vocals and funky uptempo drum-patterns. Especially the latter make this as catchy as any punkrock band, while the vocals remind of Melt Banana’s screeching schouts and the guitars of Hot Snakes profound post-punk/punk rock sound. I am not stating any obvious influences (although I wouldn’t be surprised if I was spot on), only trying to label their overall sound to give you a first impression. If you’re not sure, you should know I just seriously want you to check this out. It’s briljant. All killer, no filler.
