Songs From The Land of Nod is a haunted record but one of no mean achievement oozing with edgy cut-throat energy and cool sleazy grace. The kind of record rarely heard since the prime of The Ramones and The Cramps it truly doesn’t put a foot wrong.
One could ask what happens when an anti-social petty thief, a male hustler, and a delinquent runaway come together to join forces in the streets of NYC? One of two things, usually. Either the birth of a gang of misfit criminals, or a legendary rock and roll band. Luckily, for society's sake, the latter has turned out to be true for Beechwood. Echoes of everything from Stiv Bators to the Electric Prunes to Velvet Underground to Johnny Thunders and with an obvious love of the Nuggets boxset.
