- Escape From New York by 65daysofstatic
8/10 Brian Staff review, 17 April 200965Daysofstatic. That's a search engine dream of a name ain' t it? Well those old Sheffield post rockers have a live CD/DVD out named 'Escape From New York', no doubt in homage to Mr Carpenter & his apocalyptic blockbusters of the 80s. We've always supported these chaps from the start & i'd like to state that in the absence of new studio material, you get a reasonably powerful representation of the band's distinctive cross-pollinated style - walls of epic, roaring guitars, punishing percussive onslaughts and vivid electronic maneuvers that take in juddering techno and spine tingling glitch. They've definitely carved themselves a unique niche in the market & it's quite a lot of fun hearing the unfettled sturm und drang of their live sound, the powerful dynamics they harness & the general celebratory atmosphere. I've always suspected they're a great live band and this 2 disc set serves a reminder that they are indeed a vital force on the contemporary "progressive rock" scene, successfully merging rock with electronics without sounding like wankers (hello Pendulum...) is to be commended.
8/10 Renars Customer review,
65DoS have always been an awesome live band, this release is just another proof of that.. great live sound on this CD + road movie (rather low-fi) + live videos are great as wellp.s. it's about time they give us a new studio album!p.p.s. buy it from the indies.
