Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!!
Fans will be dying to get a hold of this
Wednesday 13 fans have certainly been looked after in 2008, with not just one, but two releases coming from the horror punk/hard rock artist. Apart from releasing his third solo album Skeletons, Wednesday 13 has also released his first live album/D.V.D. in the form of Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!!. Recorded on July 18th 2008 at Crocodile Rock in Allentown (Pennsylvania) in support of his latest release Skeletons, Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!! is a no-frills seventy-one minute live audio C.D./D.V.D. concert from Wednesday 13 and his band (Who comprise of guitarist J-Sin Trioxin, bassist Nate Manor and drummer Jonny Chops).
Shot with six cameras, Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!! is a raw and honest representation of Wednesday 13 live in concert, with no post production studio overdubs used to mask the odd off note from any of the band members (Including from Wednesday 13 himself). And while it sounds like a complete disaster, it has to be said that Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!! is actually a lot of fun, and pretty rocking from start to finish. Set list wise, there's plenty of fan favourites on offer, with tracks from Wednesday 13's solo releases (Look What The Bats Dragged In, House By The Cemetery, My Home Sweet Homicide, Happily Ever Cadaver, Not Another Teenage Anthem, Gimmie Gimmie Bloodshed, Faith In The Devil, Skeletons and the heavy and darker Put Your Death Mask On) mixed with Murderdoll tracks (197666), Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 classics (I Love To Say Fuck and Rambo) and his cover of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers' Runnin' Down A Dream.
In fact, the only negative that can be pointed at Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!! is the occasional dark screen shot or the white out on the screen due to the strobe lighting. But then given that this is a real live concert, and is a completely live representation of the band (Warts and all); it's hardly what you would call a major fault on the band's behalf.
Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!! isn't about to convert any newcomers to Wednesday 13's brand of ghoulish B-grade horror punk, but it'll certainly have fans frothing at the mouth to see what they'll no doubt consider the greatest show on earth in their own living room.
