The 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster

So their name is impossible to remember, but once you see them live and get the records, they are painfully hard to forget. I will say that EMBD are making music that sounds like no one else right now. And I really don' t think you can say that about too many bands these days. The live experience is amazing and embodies what I always want out of a great rock show. If you can't use the words "possessed by the rock" at least once during a concert, you got ripped off, and 80s Matchbox know this and give you your money's worth everytime.

The sound is part Misfits, with dashes of psychobilly, industrial, punk, hardcore and country dirges. Or say Nick Cave fronting the Revolting Cocks doing Stooges covers. It's not for everyone, but I love them. They have 2 records out in the UK, but of course, no US label. Cuz thats how I do.

Their scores?: The first record, Horse of the Dog gets a 9; the follow up gets an 8. Live show? 11.
