Fucked Up – Queen Of HeartsBy Craig Smith • Aug 10th, 2011 • Category: Webcut of the Week
For some reason Fucked Up‘s recently released punk opera David Comes To Life (American Idiot it ain’t) went unheralded by the powers that try to be at Webcuts, which was a dick move if I may say so. As ungainly as the thought of sitting down to a hardcore-delivered tale about a guy who works in a lightbulb factory is, while being liberally shouted by the physically daunting, but incredibly charming man known as Pink Eyes. Over the course of 80 minutes, Fucked Up have in their own small way redefined the genre and recorded their ultimate statement. Where they go from here is anyone’s guess, but where they will be soon, is in London at XOYO on August 25 just ahead of their appearance at the Reading and Leeds Festival. We will be there. You should too. “Queen Of Hearts” is a taste of what to expect from David Comes To Life and this is clip is one of the best we’ve seen all year. Out now on Matador records.
