"Love Sex Death" (Drive-Thru; 2001)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
According to their Facebook page, RX27 play music "about the darker side of life and how to get out alive." That's a pretty good description. With song titles like "Welcome to Sick City," "Fuck Forever" and "Murder Ballad" you know what you're in for.
"Love Sex Death" has a gothic punk sound that is raw and razor sharp. It reminds me a bit of what the Ramones sounded like on "End of the Century." (On a side note, fuck you if you don't like "End of the Century.") The music on "Love Sex Death" is bouncy punk given an edge by attitude-laden male vocals bolstered by an energetic female vocalist who gives it everything she's got (especially on "Hell of a Time.").
There are only six songs on "Love Sex Death" and most of those are under three minutes in length. I already want to hear more. And that's a good sign for a recording from a band that's new to you. Please check them out.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
