Hello, my name is David, your name is Veronica. This is how it all starts, David Comes to life, the newest Fucked Up studio album. It a love story told in 18 tracks and once again they’ve made something completely unique, a 68 minute rock opera, an album set to a play. There is even a whole site dedicated to this record http://www.davidcomestolife.com/. With postcards of the characters who feature in the story, told on the record, be sure to check it out.
When you look where Fucked Up comes from, this a mayor shift in the genre, they started out as a hardcore/punk band but they we’re always pushing the edge, they kept evolving. Their second full length even starts with a flute intro. Not many hardcore bands would get away with this.
Fucked up is one in a kind, thats why I love them so much.
and for a review check pitchfork media.
Anyway here’s the record, on Matador Records.
Perhaps I’ll talk about my other fucked up records some other time…
