THE MINERS OF BANAL

2:51 AM / Posted by strgzr /



















The Miners of Banal is a twisted, odd, rock band that is quite hard to peg. They remind me of Mekons in their shambolic, fun-loving way. Their lyrics deal with messy relationships, a generation of comedians who know the sad parts and the boredom of contemporary life. I like Tito's world-weary voice and I love the way they use that earthy accordion, stripped down guitars and drums. There is something quite charming and real life-like about this that I can't quite explain. During the late 70's and early 80's there a number of British and American bands that seem to define the way life was, when it wasn't special in their own sweet way. Kinda goofy, kinda cool and lots of fun.
