Train To Nowhere - The Dead 60s - The Dead 60s (CD, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
The Dead 60s released their eponymous debut album in -- nearly 30 years after the Clash released their debut. But where the Clash preached revolution, the Dead 60s practice tradition, using the punk of the late '70s as a sacred text, never daring to deviate from what was done before. They may synthesize, though: often, the band sounds like Joe Jackson fronting the Clash or the Specialsas they alternate between strident three-chord anthems and elastic dub-inspired punk-reggae.
It's an appealing sound and the band is not only tight, but they're reasonably good songwriters, too, on both the rockers and spooky, spacy reggae. Nevertheless, the entire enterprise seems a little too tasteful and respectful, as if the group were so concerned with getting it right, they're reluctant to let loose. Plus, there's that nagging question of how does a band whose very name tears down one era of rock get away with fetishizing another time from the distant past -- it makes it seem as if the Dead 60s are living in the past instead of moving forward, and their album, as enjoyable as it is, doesn't dispel that notion.
It's kind of like listening to the Stray Cats in -- they recreated the glory days of Carl Perkins and Gene Vincentkeeping rockabilly alive 26 years after its heyday. The Dead 60s do the same thing with punk, but there's not only a greater distance between them and punk than there was between the Stray Cats and rockabilly, they lack the energy and knowing sense of humor that gave Brian Setzer 's trio life and hit singles.
The band's rhythmic architecture is spot on: drums keep tight, in-the-pocket rhythms ticking behind loose, bouncing bass, and chk-chking guitars on the two and four. The instrumental formula is straight from Kingston, but the overall energy and passionate, accent-inflected singing is straight British punk.
The choice of source material is understandable: this was a great sound, and the Dead '60s resuscitate it with talent and conviction. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Skip to main content.
