Death From Above Murdered my SOUL
Once again I have to credit the musical genius that I call boo, Shane Hagerty (rockNroll OBSESSED) for getting me into this magnificent man rock duo.
I know how to werk a sweaty Coachella crowd but was a little leary about gettin in the mix and havin to throw my bows to block the fool that would probably murder me at this show. Maybe it was the sunset that calmed the storm. Or maybe it was the fact that everyone was at a STAND STILL. Once the boys started killing us with their raw, brutal and surprisingly sweet rock tunes, we couldn't move, we couldn't breathe, we could only stand mouth agape. Somehow these sexy-disgusting men meshed crushing drums and base with sensitive lyrics. Imagine a screaming marriage proposal supported by the sick, psychotic, crashing BRILLIANCE of sound, "WE'LL GET MARRIED AND START A FAMILY!!!!" Holy shit I'm in love.
I've mentioned before that every band/artist I write about influences my own musical journey so...Steely Nash and the Cuts are striving to be a duo these days. It all came to me during this show. Was I really living before this show? Nah. But now I am.
Thank you DEATH FROM A-FRIGGIN-BOVE 1979
