BETTER OFF DEAD - Taking Trains - 12"
Welcome on the journey, "Taking trains" is the first BETTER OFF DEAD full lenght. This trio involves long time punk activists from Angers, France. BETTER OFF DEAD plays some kind of dynamic punk-rock with a melancholic touch here and there. Listening to these nine songs, other female fronted bands like LA FRACTION, POST REGIMENT or SIGNAL LOST may come to mind . Some melodies, guitar parts and bass lines may remind you recent peace-punk bands like 1981 or SURRENDER. Anyway, BETTER OFF DEAD develops their own identity on this LP. Lyrics treats various subject like religion, masculine behaviour, the need of travel... from a very personnal angle. The record come with nice artwork drawings by frontwoman Kroquette. Check this great punk vinyl.
