Dinner Party - Too Live To Die
How about a dinner party in Manchester, UK? Can't make it? No problem, Too Live To Die, the latest menu from Manchester's Dinner Party is available via Icecapades Records. And what fare can you expect? Garage, punk, psychedelic, fuzz rock, and even a bit of some loose-limbed Americana, among other things. And while the meal doesn't come with hot sauce, it is delivered with plenty of "don't give a damn" attitude.
Dinner Party has not been among the most prolific of groups, and Too Live To Die is their first album in three years. But unlike some of us who produce at a slow rate (such as the writers of this blog over the past three weeks), the members of this band have an excuse. Edwin Stephens is a member of Irma Vep, Sex Hands and Klaus Kinski. Nick Ainsworth and Tom Settle are members of Former Bullies, among other projects. But the wait was worth it, because when this trio gets in the kitchen, the results are magic.
