48Crash GANG001: 30th October 2006
1. Beat Of Blue
“Well in the cell it was hell, when he scratched his fame on the wall, he’s still got his chain and ball”
2. Never Be Alone
“She said that I’ll never be the one, wasted all her time, but I seen this comin’ and I read the signs all along”
‘Beat Of Blue’ is glorious Pop-Punk in the mould of The Ramones but with a distinctly British flavour. The clattering Drums and start/stop Guitars had my body positively convulsing. The footie-chant chorus sweeps you up and when the brakes slam on for the juddery finish you really believe the last shout of “No one can stop us at all”.
‘Never Be Alone’ is like a classic lost single by The Cribs, but fortunately, without the recorded-in-a-toilet production. The chunky twang of the Bass Guitar at the start is awesome, the keyboards bring to mind ‘Walk Of Life’ by Dire Straits and it’s even got hand-claps. The infectious positivity of the chorus “Together, forever, and ever, we’ll never, be alone” would assure this track a place on the A-side of most other bands singles.
