TBM is made of pure WIN

This entry was posted by on Friday, 2 May, 2008 at

I have fallen in love with one of my favourite bands, The Birthday Massacre, all over again.

They just released a new cover song on their MySpace page as seen here: http://www.myspace.com/thebirthdaymassacre

Yup, they covered the Tommy James and the Shondells song “I Think We’re Alone Now”. Yes, the song Tiffany also covered and made famous in the mid 1980’s.

Go. Listen. NOW.

Then go buy it on iTunes next week when the EP is released (I had the EP on pre-order already, even before knowing this song was on it. SCORE!) And then after you have listened to the fabulousness that is this cover song, go buy all their other albums as well. If you’re lucky, you may even be able to find their cover version of “The Never Ending Story”. The magnitude of win-ocity can simply not be contained.

  1. Nice – Lead singer has a Susannah Hoffs kinda sound, easy on the ears with a “‘Til Tuesday meets NIN” instrumental side. These folks will go in the mix. (we must be related)

    Errr… Do you “Dresden Dolls”? Go to Youtube for “Coin Operated Boy” and “Shores of California”.

  2. I haven’t listened to the Dresden Dolls yet… But I will now 🙂

    Be warned TBM is a bit more industrial than this cover would imply. Not completely but just moreso. I for one LOVE their sound.

  4. Nice… But…

    It kinda sounds like an anime sound track. Mind you I like anime sound tracks I just didn’t think you would. Thanks for the heads up.

    I saw that 🙂 Not too sure about the other bands but may still make it out.

    I think that may be due to a more concept based style of music than anything else. Though Chibi’s voice can also lend to that perception I’m sure. In either case, I would have not put the two together in my mind. I like the harder industrial edge mixed with Chibi’s softer vocals; a nice dichotomous pairing that agrees with my darker side 🙂
