Customer Review

on 11 November 2005
Why this album was met with so much indifference by the Music Press is beyond me. A bit too retro perhaps?
The Dead 60s are a group of Liverpool based young men who (like Bloc Party and The Futureheads) take their musicial influences from late 70s/early 80s post-punk.
While Hard-Fi get better press and more attention, The Dead 60s are the superior band. True, the 2-Tone comparisons reek of lazy journalism but there's no denying how similar a lot of this sounds to those late 70s UK punk bands (The Ruts?) who flirted with reggae riffs. There's the trademark post-punk, scratchy-funk-guitar (Gang Of Four?) and that quirky 60s reggae organ sound (hence The Specials comparisons).
It's a terrific debut album. The limited edition 2 disc version is definitely worth the extra cash. The 2nd disc is made up of dub versions of the album tracks.
