DEATH CAMP: Live at the Bug Jar 7/20/15: CS

Nov 02, 2015

Death Camp have moved beyond simply being in the middle of an odd Venn diagram—Cock Sparrer and King Diamond and Roxy Music overlapping—and are now in their own world. For example: the stomping bravado of “Young Tyrant” leading into a reverent cover of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” that comes halfway through this astonishingly hi-def live cassette. There’s no telling where the band will go from here (the band isn’t often in the same room together). If Headbanger’s Ball is still on the air, somebody should book them. Maybe make them the new hosts.
