IT'S THE BEAT GENERATION
Once again the wonders of the internet and the conscience of the blogger have provided me with the chance of listening to another pre-release. This time it's THE DEAD 60'S second album; Time To Take Sides, and it's fucking great and has helped to lift my mood this week, which can't be bad, the power of music. For this album the 60's haven't so much dropped their ska influences as to add a dose of power pop to them. There are bits that remind me of The Motors and Bruce Springsteen, this shift is gonna see the band either get a major slating or a massive rating. Personally I don't give a shit, it's a great album with soul and passion. Anyway if you wanna here it get searching on the web or wait until it's released, either way its worth it. Just as a little preview here's an alternative live version of the track Liar from the album. It was/is currently available on their web site, but to save you the bother get it here.
