18 Days to Dragon*Con: Band Profile, S.S. Vendetta

 

S.S. Vendetta has a really short, pathetic Dragon*Con profile and also a ReverbNation profile (did you know that ReverbNation is based in Durham?  Neither did I.  I LOVE DURHAM).

So their Dragon*Con profile says the following: “Ska Punk was their core, but as they progressed further, they have become much more than that. S.S. Vendetta are serious about their music and have fun writing and playing it in the studio and at shows. They are currently writing their full length album using some from the old demos and also writing a batch of brand new songs with a completely new feel. They’re gonna try something that not a lot of people have heard. ”  I don’t understand what that last part means, that is such a broad, ambitious statement for such a short little profile.

Unnngh, time to listen to some music:

Oof.  Sounds like 6th grade.

And so does that.

I was hoping that this would be a remix of “Seize the Day” from Newsies, but no dice.  This is terrible and screamy.   I think we need to recover with some actual Newsies:

This counts for Dragon*Con because of Christian Bale amirite?

All right, talking points:

–Ska even though they say they aren’t

–Screamy ska

–Ska happened at my middle school dances y’all.

Two thumbs down, but mostly because I have a splitting headache and that music just exacerbated it.  Sorry, S.S. Vendetta.  Music is a situational thing.

  1. Just because I genre happened when you were in middle school doesn’t make it childish. Let me remind you that there were people of all ages while you were in middle school.
