Dacios,The - Monkey's Blood lp (Homeless Records)


"A reissue of the 2009 Monkey’s Blood album from THE DACIOS. The Daicos, from Melbourne via Hobart, are named after the village weirdos in the town where its members grew up. But weird is not the first word which springs to mind in describing this album. In fact, unlike a lot of current new releases, it’s not weird at all, and there are no traces of quirkiness or outlandish eccentricity. Instead, The Dacios serve up a powerful album of weighty rock'n'roll music, draped in super-scuzzy riffs which, when matched with clever, soul-tearing lyrics, provide a robust one-two punch that is the knockout. A family affair, The Dacios are a vehicle for the darker, more violent musical aspirations of siblings, BEAN and LINDA J DACIO, who initially came to the attention of major record labels whilst playing in their earlier band, LITTLE UGLY GIRLS. Since those heady days, Bean and LJ continued to blaze a scorching trail across the Melbourne music scene, becoming respected stalwarts along the way. Originally released in 2009, The Dacios' debut Monkey's Blood is a filler-free compendium of forceful, authoritative compositions which, in the old vernacular, are all A-side material. Remastered by MIKEY YOUNG and pressed in a limited edition of 250 copies with an exclusive vinyl-only track, download and printed inner sleeve." - HOMELESS RECORDS

   "... could Monkey's Blood be the best Australian rock’n’roll record of the decade? I would like to think that in years to come this album will be regarded as highly as (I’m) Stranded, X-Aspirations or Blood Red River, but only time will truly tell."—Mess+Noise
