Rose for Bohdan
"There it is, The Creeping Moral Decay of the Past Thousand Years"

If you're like me, than you discovered this band all too late. so late in fact, that the first thing you heard was their last album ever. well actually that's not true, Ports O' Call Jon played "Then Everybody Hugged" for me late last year, and I thought it was great, though i didn't know what it was and forgot the name as soon as Id heard it.

And so, newness is a relative concept all over again. The Album "There it is, The Creeping Moral Decay of the Past Thousand Years," was released for free download at the very beginning of the year (still available) by Deathbomb Arc.

The sound is crisp, clear, and perfectly layered. it really speaks volumes about the know-how and experience of the crew responsible for production. the songs themselves are fascinating in that they project that punk-as-fuck sort of attitude that come from songs and lyrics about hostile youth takeover, religious dogma, parents sucking, and riding bikes while pairing them with a fully realized sound. its a great noise-rock album that makes you smile and consider the band as being a group of musicians who cant help but defy convention, and have a shitload of fun doing so. its at times danceable, at times incomprehensible, but fresh as hell throughout.

The album is a great introduction to the Deathbomb Arc aesthetic, not simply because its free and good, but because it is the perfect precursor to Foot Villiage, Crooked Cowboy, Laco$ste, (all equally strange and exciting) and the Deathbomb label itself. if you arent paying for this album, you will surely pay for plenty others that are connected in some way.
