DEAD CLASS, THE: Self-titled: 7”

A two-song 7” by a four piece punk band from Liverpool. The A side was good, not great, reminding me most vividly of The Dead Kennedys, due to the vocals being mildly Jello-esque and the guitar work reminding me of East Bay Ray’s off-kilter surf rock. The B side slows things down a bit and goes for a somewhat less ambitious ‘70s garage punk sound. Overall a decent single, but nothing to write home to Mom about.
