Dark Blue

These Philadelphia post-punk hard rockers have a new album out, and it is quite good ("Start of the
World").....some type of lyrical concept about a decaying USA here, and no argument from me, but truth is, John N has sent not only their new album, but their previous one, as well as their singles....this is good, modern day hard post-punk (I know I already said that, but I find no other way to describe it actually).....the singer's voice does get a tiny bit annoying, but overall this is stuff that sounds good to me, and fans of a certain type of rock will enjoy these.

SINGLE #1-01 Subterranean Man/02 Skinhead Wedding in Canberra

SINGLE #2-01 Just Another Night With the Boys/02 Hungry For Love

PURE REALITY-01 Never Afraid, Never Alone/02 Here on My Street/03 Dear Iris/04 Sounds Like Hell On Earth/05 I Can't Take Another Year/06 Hanging From the Chandelier/07 City Eyes/08 Always Ready to Leave

SINGLE #3-01 Vicious Romance/02 Delco Runts

START OF THE WORLD-01 Union of Buffoons/02 Be Gone Everyone/03 I Never Wanted to Hurt You/04 Paralyzed By Fear/05 You Know Who/06 Bombs on the Beach/07 Tired of the Poor/08 Western Front Academy

I was only slightly familiar with this band when they were submitted to me, I must say, I'm much more impressed than I thought I'd be.....these songs rock hard in a sort of strange way, and the lyrics are a bit out there as well....the concepts explored on "Start of the World", while not always hitting their target, still have's a good album, as is the previous one, and the singles are fab as well.......underappreciated band, at least by me up until now. Pretty good stuff here, thanks John N.
