By The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
Orientating around Adam, Eve and the whole Garden thing they had going on way back when, The Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster hit back with their new single.
Kicking in with a short blast of horror-esq attention grabbing music, the simple beat commences providing a backing to the simple, religion based lyrics. Sounding like it could be a cut/hidden/missing/unknown part from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and other such stage shows, 'In The Garden' is a short but sweet two and half minutes long. It hasn't really got much about it, but being established they don't really have much to prove. The band are obviously making music which they love, and the straightforwardness works. I'm sure devoted fans will appreciate rocking to this track, and a few new devotees may emerge.
The backing vocals are quite dictated, it feels like, if on screen, the lead vocals would be coming from someone stood at a lectern, and the masses of followers beneath worshipping and believing in this would be providing the backing lyrics. It's quite the epic song, which is enhanced three-fold by the subject matter. The three other songs on the single are equally good, Track two 'You Say You're A Doctor But You're Really A Mister' is probably the best of the three additional ones. The disc provides a good ten minutes of rock fun. Perhaps you'll be 'In The Garden' with The Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster this summer.
