Funeral Party: intoxicating and intoxicated
This is how you kick out the jams, dude. East LA’s Funeral Party are five trash-talking brats living high on the hog and producing copious amounts of slamming post-punk indie-dance rock. They sound both intoxicating and intoxicated, making them the best kind of trouble to come out of LA in yonks. Or, at least, the best kind of trouble you can get from a band who take their name from a Cure tune.
Begin your investigation into the band by checking out the three snotty anthems on their ³Bootleg EP². ³Chalice² and ³Carwars² roar out of the traps, build up a magnificent head of steam (thanks to Chad Elliott’s raspy vocal growl) and then ignite with fantastic fury.
