Burger Records put out a two records on one cassette thing for the Useless Eaters, so that is cool. I for one love the Useless Eaters and side one, Daily Commute. Daily Commute rules, like big time. It has this really kind of spacey lo-fi Devo feel, if Devo was lo-fi. Side one is what I would call “Space Rock N’ Roll,” it is also simple and catchy as all get out.
Now the C’est Bon! side did not go over well with me. It was too spacey and nothings really sticking out to me. Side two is just kind of weird and too noisy at times. I guess it is just hard to beat Daily Commute.
Anyway, hop over to Burger Records to get this bad boy. It is worth it!

I had this vinyl in my bedroom well over a month without even putting it on my turntable for no reason at all. I guess I really did not think it was going to be good and it only had five tracks on it so it seemed like an “I’ll get to you later” album. I finally got to it and it blew me away, man. Side A has one track on it titled “F*** Off” and it starts off rather symphonic, but with using synths, so synthphonic. About a minute and 35 seconds into the song a beat begins to build up, then a surfy chiming guitar, then comes the dark wave and post-punk vocals at the 2-minute mark. At this point, I am sold on the fact that this band really knows how to bring back the early Goth-pop, post-punk feel.
I flip the vinyl over to side B to hear “Mourning Heir” and it hits me right in the face with a, “I’m at a funeral, at the beach and I’m happy” feeling. This five track record keeps getting better and better and it is like nothing I have heard in a long time. Grave Babies hopped on the Neo-Goth trend and did it right. No other band of the now has pulled off sounding like a lo-fi Cure meets Joy Division like “Gothdammit” does.
This album is for fans of gloomy sounding danceable noise. The album is a lot to take in, but in a good way. This is an album that no matter how much I go on about it will never even give you a taste of how good this album is. Go out and get it!
