Birth School Work Death

Back in 1988 British rock band The Godfathers had their moment in the charts with their somewhat amusing take on life, Birth School Work Death. 16 years later the song has turned up on a compilation from ultra cool label Output Recordings. Channel 3 features Manhead's version of Birth School Work Death. It's turned from a punk pop tune into a real dancefloor groover - poppin' bass, chicken scratchy disco guitars, and monotone Euro vocals mixed with just the right amount of electronics. Label honcho Trevor Jackson has a great ear for cool bands, and the rest of the compilation is just as good as this tune.
