BURNING LOVE: Demo + Don’t Ever Change: 7”s

This is what I expected from Born Dead Icons! When I first read a review of that band and they were described as a punk rock Motörhead, I made a bee line for their records. And while I like Born Dead Icons, I’ll admit I was kind of disappointed. Were my expectations too high? Possibly. Did I have very few expectations for Burning Love? Yes. But holy shit! The demo record is good, but “Don’t Ever Change” sounds like it was spawned by quarrelling monsoons. Punishing, unforgiving, punk rock Motörhead.
