Now this comes as a bit of a surprise. Wyoming's favourite Ramonesophiles, Teenage Bottlerocket (more HERE), have self-released a strictly-limited edition 7" of Joy Division covers. So, while plundering new source material, means some trickier guitar lines, some martial drumming and a certain seriousness, it's still recognizably TB. Joy Division may have been moody, atmospheric, blah, blah, blah but they were capable of writing such drop-dead perfect choruses that it made Ian Curtis' suicide that much more gut-wrenching. In tribute to Joy Division's depth, Teenage Bottlerocket stayed away from the most obvious choices, "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "She's Lost Control" et al and instead rip through ferocious versions of "Ice Age" and "Walked In Line".
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
