Bedford - Spaceships, Sex And Jealousy: The Singles 1995 - 2000
Label: Boss Tuneage
Format: CD


Epic and thoroughly enjoyable singles collection from long-serving Pennyslvania punk band, Bedford

Bedford are a long-serving punk band from Pennsylvania. 'Spaceships, Sex And Jealousy - The Singles 1995 - 2000' is the band's second release on Boss Tuneage records, and follows the re-release of their debut album 'Smiles Are The Batteries'. This 25 track collection kicks off with 'I-81', which is driven by a flashing rhythm. The lyrics are sung so that you hardly catch the words but that is not necessary for enjoying the spirit and fiery attitude of the music. '3 Ring Binder Circus' starts of cautiously, but then the music harshly runs straight forward. The vocals are clear and self-conscious. An almost calming attitude comes with 'Smolder' in which the tune is slowed down, but the unpredictable spirit of the album is maintained. Duetting female and male vocals appear on 'Build Up A Phone' and softens the rough feel of the album. This is especially inspiring, as it appears half way through the album and gives it a slightly new approach The collection finishes off with the live instrumental recordings, 'Don's Car', and'Los Alamos'. The amateurishly recorded songs will probably be valued by the band's fans the most. They do, however, give an idea what the band would be like live. Great! I believe. This collection of singles won't disappoint you as they offer some great music. 25 tracks definitely seems a lot to take in. The quality of the music, however, proves the band right to have released them as singles before though.
