Mark Lind & The Unloved - The Last Bastion LP
Long-time Boston punk institution and DUCKY BOYS front-man, MARK LIND, returns with his first album of new music since 2013 and the first with THE UNLOVED in a decade. Existing fans can expect another solid album of catchy punk rock n’ roll songs. New listeners might be interested in the Appetite for Destruction-style feel the band was able to capture.
As the owner and proprietor of State Line Records, Lind has assembled a band
comprised of members of label bands ART THIEVES, DIABLOGATO, MICHAEL KANE & THE MORNING AFTERS and even THE BRUISERS. Most of these songs were rehearsed a handful of times and then recorded live in studio in one to two takes. The band sounds urgent and fresh. Jeff Morris of THE BRUISERS lends his impeccable lead guitar skills to more than a handful of the songs. Paul Christian and Steve Neary of FAR FROM FINISHED resurfaced to lend a helping hand.
This is a new take on THE UNLOVED with fresh players making their mark on a set
of MARK LIND songs. This band nails it on every level and takes the songs to new
heights and places they wouldn't have gone otherwise. Fans of all of LIND’s bands will find something they can enjoy here. Pairing up with Andrew Moreyellow (ART THIEVES) for the first time since DIRTY WATER’s sole EP in 2003 made this project go to the next level.
