Die! Die! Die!

Die! Die! Die!

Die! Die! Die!

8 / 10 So here’s an example of how to do this ‘playing music’ thing, right. Have a name apparently inspired by the speech bubble of a cartoon Kamikaze pilot. Approach your live shows like you are actually a crack squad of Soviet Olympic gymnasts who took a Spinal Tap-style wrong turn and ended up onstage with a guitar round your neck. Oh, and write songs like ‘155’, a pure clanging iron-clad racket which comes on like early And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead if they were fronted by a banshee-like PJ Harvey (which is sorta weird in itself, because Die! Die! Die! are actually three pixie-like young gentlemen from New Zealand). It’s all over in 30 minutes, but that’s OK – you’ll just play it again.
