Album Review

THE KNUTZ comes from Brazil and was formed in 2005. Besides a first demo CD the band spent its time between performing at live gigs and side projects. But now the time has come to enter the music market with their first full-length CD. The whole feeling of this CD is like THE CURE playing something between Gothabilly and Punk. The band lists as their influences besides David Bowie (who’s influence is not to be sensed anywhere around the Ghost Dance Party) the BAUHAUS, the SEX PISTOLS, THE CLASH and the ALIEN SEX FIEND. And they should have added DEAD KENNEDYS as well. The ‘Intro’ that opens the CD gives a glimpse of what will follow up only in terms of minimal keyboards and loops. In ‘Ghost Dance Party’, the introducing riffs are alarmingly similar to DEAD KENNEDY’s ‘Police Truck’ with the major difference of its sound; indeed it sounds as if it is played by THE CURE.

Among all of that, the title of this CD turns to have a metaphorical aspect as THE KNUTZ are moving and blending their influences. If they have something in common with the DEAD MOON it is that they kept the stripped down aspects of sound in order to produce something rather unique. ‘You Are The Wonder’ balances perfectly between Goth and Post Punk (with emphasis given to Punk). ‘Bem Depois’ has this tremble in the voice so resembling the vocals of Jello Biafra yet Daniel Abud manages to maintain the control of the vocals not only in the specific song but all along the CD. As for the lyrics they linger between a serious aspect and one of an extensive dark humour and at times it is difficult to make the distinction. Personally I tend to side with the dark humour aspect. If the ‘Ghost Dance Party’ isn’t a mark of paranoia, it surely is of a genius. Absolutely enjoyable CD from a band which I think has a great future ahead.
