When the lights are out in Disneyland, anything can happen. This was Disneyland After Dark back in ’82. Then the lawyers of The Walt Disney Company showed up, threatening with lawsuit and the Danish rockers changed their name subsequently into: D.A.D., D•A•D, D:A:D and D-A-D, and each name practically represents a period in the band’s history.
The brand new album entitled “DIS.NEY.LAN.DAFT.ERD.ARK” was released on the latest fatalistic date of the human history: 11-11-11, while the album is another nice piece of the history of the band and a fresh set of pulsing, pounding hard fucking rock songs in the best possible tradition. It’s odd, but nowadays, two thousand fucking eleven, you need lot of guts to play – and release – a hard rock album.
D-A-D began playing together in the early 1980s in Copenhagen, Denmark, and they released their first EP in 1985 and have now existed for more than twentyfive years, with only one change in the lineup, as Laust Sonne replaced former drummer Peter Lundholm Jensen back in ’99. This is odd too for a rock band, isn’t it?
And they (still) got a good sens of humor. 🙂
12 tracks, no fucking brain surgery, only good, singable themes, catchy riffs, great rock songs. Simple sometimes is the most difficult thing to do, but these guys doing it just the right way. Fans of Aerosmith definitively will enjoy this one as well.
