Funeral For a Friend – Escape Artists Never Die

A band with a silly name, and silly song titles, is usually a recipe for the kind of music I like. They seemed quite likeable on PopWorld this morning (all I do is watch TV). FFaF make jaunty nu-metal-dawsons-emoish-rock, you know loud bits and quite bits, power chords and whispers. Best of all, they have a shouty guy and imcomprehensible lyrics, apart from “the red poison of your lips” I can’t catch a word after this. Perhaps, it’s because it’s not like the old days when I used to read the lyrics to Megadeth and Anthrax songs as they were playing, and could recite lyrical passages from memory. On another song (Moments Forever Faded) they seem to be singing “No pudding, no pudding”, I love this band!
