CUT: Will You Die 4 Me?: CD

Mar 19, 2002

An Italian band, playing rock’n’roll, both male and female vocals singing in not-too-accented English – they’ve got the spirit, derived from such touchstones as the MC5 and X (the obvious comparison). This is the kind of album that makes you say, “Damn, I bet they’d put on a great show” on the first listen, and hey, let’s face it, I know plenty of guys who’d pay the admission fee to see the band just to get an up-close-and-personal view of singer Elena Skoko, a photo of whose (clothed) crotch is prominently featured on the cover of Will You Die 4 Me. “Sugar Babe,” which was probably my favorite cut from the album is available as a free mp3 download at http://www.gammapop.com/listen.htm. If you’re into it, you should definitely consider the great foldout CD insert as incentive to pick up the whole CD. And, uh, the other tunes too.
