Ludo – “Love Me Dead”

I was changing CDs in my car the other day because I have not yet spent the money on an iPod compatible stereo deck, and my radio was tuned to 101X, a local rock station that mostly plays music I hate.  As I was fumbling with my CD case, I heard some guy sing something about “fingerbangin’ my heart.”  I thought, “Did he really just sing that?”  Sure enough, he did.

I listened to the rest of the song, and I don’t know exactly how to feel about it.  On the one hand, it sounds a lot like some Harvey Danger/Eve 6/Ugly Kid Joe hybrid of sucktasticness, but on the other hand, it’s a peppy, energetic, and humorous little song.  I had no idea who the artist was, and I made a mental note to search the intarwebs to figure it out.  Apparently that mental note was misplaced for some time, but it popped in my head this afternoon.  I searched for “fingerbangin’ my heart,” and the result was a band called Ludo and their song “Love Me Dead”.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am in no way endorsing this song or this band, because I think I am probably about 15 years too old to really have any true appreciation for their aesthetic, but I thought I’d link it here just for the hell of it.  I could totally see myself at 15 or 16 years old thinking this was the greatest band ever, only to grow up one day and think, “Fuck, I actually listened to Bush?  I mean, Ludo?”

The video is kinda fun, though.  Also, they are named after that yeti Muppet character in Gordon’s favorite film of all time, Labyrinth.  How bad could they be?
