The Boy From The Crowd - Where The Bees Come To Die

.
Protagonist in the song "All I Need," which is found in both a full and radio edited version on The Boy From The Crowd's Where The Bees Come To Die album, finds out that the girl he loves doesn't love him back. To reveal this to the listener, lead vocalist Vinny Piana switches from his usual scratchy, lecherous voice, to an innocent, little-lost-lamb vocal to tell this guy all she actually wants is money; all she really wants is gold. "I'm not as true as you think I am," she tells him, thus crushing his spirit.

For "The Road," the band goes for something that sounds like a more garage-y The Clash. "Revelator" begins with the sort of stop and start groove so often applied to White Stripes songs.

While the much this EP is filled with dirty electric guitar parts and Lemmy (from Motorhead) lead vocals, the project closes with its title track, an instrumental that vacillates between quiet, surf-y electric lead lines, and more grungy chords. If this song is truly imagining the bees' final resting place, it sure leaves a good buzz. It also revels how The Boy From The Crowd knows how to do much more than just bash its songs out.

The Bees Come To Die is a good, sincere blast of rock & roll noise. It's not calculated or in many ways premeditated. Instead, it retains a degree of relentless spontaneity, and is intended to be played loud and often.
