Review - Lucky Funeral - Lucky Funeral

Lucky Funeral - Lucky Funeral

View The Review

3 out of 10

Greek stoner rock. You may not wish to read any further.

For those of you still with us, we have the everything-fuzzier-than-everything-else handbook writ large, here - marijuana's never killed anyone / fuck you, man / yeahhh, fuck you / repeat, ad nauseum. Lucky Funeral may cite the usual Sabbath / Kyuss influences, look like they've stepped straight off the set of Deliverance and bear stage names unfortunately mangled by a Medieval font ( 'Pork Ass' ? 'Dickolis' ?), but what we have here is a very stoned Soundgarden tribute band attempting Mindfunk's Dropped. The title track and Bleeding Thoughts are the high points (pardon the pun), with an evil plod to the former and a twisted violence to the latter. As for the rest, well, start with the sentiment of track three - 'if you don't like what I am, just stay away'. See you, then.
