DEAD TO ME: Moscow Penny Ante: CD

Whenever I hear the name of this band, I think about how much I’ve heard about them. Then I get the feeling I actually have heard them before. It’s because I have heard them before, in fact, I’ve heard them a lot. I dated a girl recently whose favorite band, aside from The Clash, was Dead To Me. For six months I probably heard them more than anything else she played. Yet, it still completely slips my mind. That’s not a good thing. I know that a lot of people like these guys, yet, to me, this bands sounds no different than the rest of that milquetoast, Punkvoter, Fat Wreck Chords sound… melodic hardcore or whatever.
