DAME - "DAME" LP
A great soundtrack for when you’d like to ask the world to go away but you aren’t quite sure how. This feels like it might have been the product of an alternate timeline where Black Flag was getting serious radio play, Siouxsie And The Banshees were bigger than The Sex Pistols, and Ian Curtis lived long enough for Joy Division to have, through some weird miracle, been paired on a West Coast tour lineup with Negative Approach resulting in some flowering bodies and impressionable minds being deeply twisted and moved enough to concoct this flesh on the bone post punk. The real world probability is that the members of Dame are adoring fans of early post punk megaliths and hardcore gargoyles, using hard edged repetition for hypnotic effect rather than violent reaction. There’s the traits of melancholy from both genres present, but not mistaking the forest for the trees, you’ll spot solid songwork amongst any aggressive or morose tendencies, arming you with the confidence to tell your boss to get nicked and scorn enemies with a casual scoff.
At long last, as a follow up to the 7" on the band's own Charm School label a few years back, we are granted the debut 12" by Boston's DAME. Though currently spread out geographically, the quintet were able to capture these modern classic tracks of post punk / gothic brilliance at Side Two Studios before the world turned upside down on us all. Equal parts melancholic and haunting, these seven tracks permeate the deepest corners of your psyche, refusing to vacate for quite some time. Each record comes in a full color jacket along with a fold out 24" x 24" poster insert, both of which feature art by guitarist Anna Cataldo.
