The Crash - It's Contagious

"Dance with me tonight"

After watching The Crash's brilliant video for the even more brilliant song Still Alive on PPG's blog, I realized that I had been introduced to a potential new favorite band. As I listened to more material from the band, I discovered that, even though they've released four albums, there's really only a dozen or so tracks that I really liked. It's kinda disappointing, but not when a handful of those songs are 100% amazing. Their 2003 album Melodrama, in particular, contains the flawless trio of Still Alive, It's Contagious and Flash. All three contain those amazing Van-Halen-Jump-synths that I love so much. If all their songs sounded like these three they probably would be a favorite of mine. As it stands, though, they're definitely in my top three Finnish groups and Still Alive is the best song out of Finland ever.

That video for 'Still Alive' is fantastic. Wow! And a great tune. Just sad to find it's unavailable on Itunes in the UK, but I did get a lovely track 'Lauren Caught My Eye' which is fab pop! Thanks for heading me in their direction!

Lauren Caught My Eye is quite good, but Still Alive / It's Contagious / Flash is just a killer trio and I think represents this band's pinnacle.

I saw The Crash live in May, as they played at our local festival. I was very surprised to see them on the line-up as it had been years since I'd heard anything about them, and I'd never heard anything of them attempting to break into the UK. It was a nice surprise to see them, but like you I think they're not quite as amazing as they could be.
