Living In The Future

Dirtnap 64

Released on October 31, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Beat Beat Beat melds ‘77 punk hooks with the energy of early ‘80s hardcore, and power pop-esque catchy songwriting skills. Saints meet Adolescents? Johnny Thunders meets early Briefs? Exploding Hearts gone KBD? Recorded in Atlanta by Dave Carbona, Living In The Future unleashes 12 sleazy, swaggering punk/pop (NOT pop punk) slices of perfection on to the undeserving masses, including a stunning cover of Australian legends The Fun Things’ "Where The Birdmen Fly."

Another great Power Pop band from Dirtnap Records. I can't really think of anything that would distinguish or seperate them from the other pack bands in that scene, but I did enjoy this CD alot. And apparently there is some cover they do of a famous Aussie band and the song is something "Flight of the Birdman" maybe???

This is definitely my favorite type of music. Old school catchy punk. If you like The Briefs,Adolescents,DI, The Clash, Hatepinks, The Jam, Undertones, etc. you probably already have this. Almost everything Dirt Nap puts out is excellent. This CD is no exception. Only complaint may be it can seem a bit repetive, but hey, its good pogo punk that isn't trying to re-invent the genre. It has enough grit that it doesn't sound wimpy while still being poppy.The production even has a late 70's sound to it. Hate Me and Nasy Nightmare are my favorites. The cover of Where the Birdmen fly is reall good too. If you like any of the bands mentioned above, you won't be dissappointed.

For me Dirtnap records is like alien snatch or Rip Off records. I can barely close my eyes and pick up almost any of their release and their will be no dissapointement. BEAT BEAT BEAT is no mistakes and their first full lenght is quite refreshing and very distinct from what is being made in today's punk. Largely influenced by the australian proto punk of the 70's they pick up the best ingredient of The early SAINTS, RADIO BIRDMAN, FUN THINGS (wich they covered «where the birmen fly») VICTIMS,etc. But what's so good in here is that they also borrow from 80's Hardcore/punk like the ADOLESCENTS, GERMS or the REPLACEMENTS. Bring some recent punk outfit like the BRIEFS, MARKED MEN or EXPLODING HEART and you'll get BEAT BEAT BEAT. A good cross between melodic hardcore, power pop and 77 punk. Listen to « Don't tell me now» and try not to fall in love with this band! Impossible! One of the greatest thing i've heard in punk (or what's left of it) since a while!

This is a nice album if you like Beat Beat Beat. Their limited tour release thing and the Cheap Time 7" got me hooked. That was over a year ago. I love those records a ton. The best, most heartfelt stuff in a long time. This is basically the same stuff but it's just been re-recorded for this album with the other half of the songs being new stuff. I still like the sound of the original records better. Probably just used to them. But I definitely dig the new tunes that are on here. That's for damn. They're definitely growing on me with every rotation. Pick it up! 5 stars.
