Death From Above 1979 – Blood On Our Hands (CD Review)

Hot on the heels of ‘Romantic Rights’ Death From Above 1979 are now treating us to a re-release of their sell out 7″ from July and making it available on CD now as well. The sound is loud and the pace is relentless as the boys scream and combine angular guitars and hollow synths into a classic rock sound with dance energy. It is the attitude that sets Death From Above 1979 apart from any peers they have. They have a disaffected punk vitality that is highly infectious.

There are different b-sides available for both the 7″ releases as well as on the CD. ‘You’re Lovely (But You’ve Got Problems)’ continues the high energy but with a 70’s rock slant, there is a cover of La Peste’s ‘Better Off Dead’ and finally the Alan Braxe remix of ‘Blood On Our Hands’ is available on the CD. The debut album ‘You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine’, is due out next week (February 28th).
