FR13: Paper Dragons - Die To Please 12" LP [January 2013]
Paper Dragons are a Baltimore punk band featuring former and current members of Deep Sleep, The Spark, Dead Mechanical, Pulling Teeth, Bad Business...the list goes on. These guys have been around quite a while. The band actually formed in 2006, played around for a year, and then took an extended break, but not before recording this album with Kevin Bernsten, and releasing it digitally with different artwork. Now that they're back in action again, we thought this would be a great time to give it a proper vinyl release. Ten songs of uniquely crafted punk rock that melds the members' other offerings with a fresh spin on things.
Comes with a digital download code.
Split release with Southpaw Records and Wallride Records.
1. Brain Drain
2. Midnight Bike Rides
3. Annihilate the Need
4. The Beginning of the End
5. Fool Me Twice
6. Senseless Things
7. Pictures of Drummers
8. Hold My Breath
9. Inside My Head
10. Die To Please
"This band from Baltimore with members of Pulling Teeth and Dead Mechanical capture that 80′s american hardcore with short, sharp songs not unlike The Descendants or Circle Jerks. Most of the songs are pretty catchy and very basic almost 3 chord wonders, with a basic DIY type of sound. I don't think it will set the punk world on fire like OFF! did with their album last year but it is very good all the same. Don't expect any gigs from Paper Dragons as they split before this album was released, highlights from this one off album are "Hold My Breath" "Midnight Bike Rides" and "Brain Drain". But my favourite has to be "Inside My Head" which is a fast, thrashy short song. This is worth a listen
and is available as a freebie or optional donation
, so, go on give it a listen." (Mass Movement
NOTE: The band reformed in 2012 and is currently active.
