Launchpad [Issue #17]
The Living Things:
By Mandana Beigi
Ahead Of The Lions (CD Jive/Zomba Label Group)

Finally a good straight-up rock ‘n’ roll band that doesn’t mess around and knows how to bring out that fiery, trashy sound that’s been dead for a while. It is a band of brothers: Lillian, Eve, and Bosh Berlin.

The Berlin brothers were born and raised in the socially conservative St. Louis, Missouri, where their father had a job laying carpet under the attractions at traveling carnivals. In the early years, the whole family would accompany him around the country and the boys went on to form a three-piece band with Lillian on guitar and vocals, Eve on bass, and Bosh on drums. They spent many summers hanging out and jamming at the carnivals and here there are now with a solid rock debut, Ahead of the Lions.

Recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey), the album certainly contains that rough, open production, but still maintains a great deal of distance from ever coming off as muddy. It’s fun, it’s uplifting, it’s a real hard rock album with 12awesome tracks that’s sometimes The Stooges, sometimes Ramones, and sometimes just a new cool band called The Living Things!

And what makes them and their record so much more interesting is that they are not just rockers – they are aware rockers. They are into politics and social issues as much as they are into Henry Miller and Sylvia Plath. And this collision of emotions is so audible in tracks like “I Owe” and “God Made Hate.”

If you’re sick and tired of the butterfly rock of the 311, Simple Plan, and Good Charlotte, worry no more because Ahead of the Lions is a ferocious rock effort that’s going to make you feel right at home!
