Monsters b/w Before You Go - DM3 (Spider Music)

monsters 45It’s been a long time between drinks but the DM3 cocktail remains as sweet as ever, without losing any of its bite. This limited edition, double A-sided 45 shows off the Fremantle trio’s trademark tight harmonies and guitar-fuelled melodies, just right.

These tracks were cut, if memory serves me right, after a torrential Sydney storm wiped out the band’s only local show and left them with time on their hands while they re-scheduled. The short-notice session in Michael Carpenter’s HZ Studios has paid dividends. . 

Moonlighting Hoodoo Guru Brad Shepherd guests on extra guitar on “Monsters” which features tasty duelling between him and Dom Mariani and some Who-inspired “Won’t Get Fooled Again” keyboard flourishes. 

“Before You Go” builds quickly into a bouncy slice of pop raunch. A playful vocal interplay and a breakdown kick in before the repeated chorus takes us out.  Pretty classic power pop and you need to snap it up here before it goes. The artwork rocks, as well.
