-  Label: 'Fire Records'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '9th October 2020'

Our Rating:
The Auckland-based 'Dead Famous People' first emerged in the 1980s but never go round to releasing a proper LP. Fire Records come to the rescue to enable Dons Savage and friends a second chance.

Unsurprisingly, given their band name, they don't specialize in serious, soul-searching songs. Instead, we get ten jangly pop tunes that seem blissfully unaware that the last three decades ever happened.

The tone is set by the tongue-in-cheek Looking At Girls in which a man's wandering eye causes a car crash.

Dead Bird's Eye is described as "a parable of environmentalism through the misdeeds of a small child" but the hey-ho, let's go retro mood means that big issues are, at best, marginal distractions.
