'Manic Panic' is astatement of musical and thematic intent. Recalling mid period R.E.M. and The Clash it is both personal and political. The background 'Bushism' cut up samples add humour and pathos to a very powerful song. DON'T JUST SAY NO!! The DB Threshold challenge Perth based DB Threshold are a band with a belief in the power of music and the brutal honesty of rock and roll. Music means so more than just a pleasant tune or some background noise to pass the time. Music is the soundtrack to life. Think about it... Everyone has them.... Those memorable songs that transport you back to places, people, and experiences that define YOU. Like a good soundtrack, the music should touch you, exhilarate you, make you think and feel, not just fill the silence.
