MAJOR ACCIDENT: Massacred Melodies: CD

Sep 08, 2006

Funny how the mind works sometimes. It’s been many a moon since last I heard these kids and totally remember them falling in the Slade-influenced camp of Oi bands. Well, imagine my surprise when what came blaring out of my speakers sounded more like early Peter And The Test Tube Babies instead. Not that that’s a bad thing, ’cause aggressive, prime-grade ‘80s U.K. punk is more than worth a listen; it’s just my memory of them sounded considerably more poppy than the reality. Go figure. What’s here is the bands debut album and tracks from a couple of singles as a bonus. Heartily recommended.
