Netherlands - Full Moon 83 - 07/13/03
Would you give up on the world?
This review will be short and fast as this EP. Six songs nicely cut by this Hoofddorp quartet.
If you like Undeclinable last stuffs, you definitely have to check this. If you are curious about
any after Offspring/ GreenDay band, go for them. They come from a village where probably the
biggest thing there is some food-catering company called Deli LX that belongs to Ahold, one huge
conglomerate involved in a financial scandal recently. Like another Dutch band that stole the
brand Bambix from the multinational Nutricia, wouldn't be a bad idea to use an already infamous
name for artistic reasons. Well, just a reverie... despite the fact of being "beyond", the 93
seems a bit dated, like for instance Ten Years After, which nowadays is more like Twenty or
Thirty... Never mind, they conquered a deed every so called punk band wishes, despite of almost
no one admits and in fact few of them really can get along with: a contract by a major. Yes,
they signed with Columbia but now they are apparently by "themselves" again. And probably since
1993 the guys have learnt a lot of lessons. From what they show on this more qualitative than
quantitative cd, a very promising full length must be on the way. Who will be smart enough for
the challenge? Bets are open. Wish they can go far beyond than just the name. It's "never give
up", would you?
