STATUES - "SAME BODIES, SAME FACES" 7"
The first DERANGED offering from Sudbury's STATUES, but not the last. For those unaware, this trio has already released two excellent albums and is currently working on a third for later 2008. In the interim, these 4 tracks will need to hold those craving another album's worth of STATUES' infectious power punk. Same bodies, same faces features 3 new exclusive originals and a GG Allin cover of 'Dead or Alive'. Here is the MRR review of their 2nd album -Wow, a welcome new discovery for me. Mining the same updated pop-punk/power-pop/mod-punk vein as SMALLTOWN or current faves (and co-Canucks) TRANZMITORS, with the hint of a less snotty BRIEFS and a literary JAWBREAKER-esque quality to the lyrics. Great stuff, recorded well and with great catchy choruses. Sounds authentic but not retro.
