The Living End - Modern Artillery
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Living End - Modern ArtilleryRockabilly. Psychobilly. Surfabilly. What sets this Aussie trio apart from other punk outfits like Green Day is its ability to mix it up musically—and to write ridiculously tuneful songs. On its third North American release, the Living End continues to show its pop savvy, serving up catchy numbers like the peppy “What Would You Do” and the apocalyptic “End of the World.” A little ska and a clever song like “Save Us,” about the futility of seeking salvation from politicians, rounds out this thoroughly likeable release.
