Boomkat Product Review:
So how does a Canadian band end up making a rock opera (in a clear nod to British rockers The Who) about Thatcher-era England? Well, I suppose it’s as good a subject matter as any, but it seems like a pretty off kilter choice given that the band probably know more about maple syrup and Arcade Fire. Maybe it’s that ‘David Comes To Life’ is, at its heart a druggy love story about a regular bloke that makes it flicker to life – and F*cked Up’s angular hardcore leanings lend themselves well to the 80s setting of the story. With the kind of vitriol most of us Brits can still remember from the era, it’s easy to see how punk (and then post punk/new wave) managed to rip the music scene apart at the seams, and it’s just as important now. ‘David Comes To Life’ might have its roots in a time almost thirty years ago now, but we have our own David, who came to life only a couple of years back – things never change.
