Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling
By Hook Or By Crook
Boston’s favorite “The Prisoner”-inspired musical act is getting feisty. Not content to wail and fuzz with bass and drums, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling wail and fuzz with bass, drums, keys, oboe and viola on By Hook Or By Crook. “Episode 10 – Living in Harmony” may be my new favorite DNFMOMD song. The vocals are simultaneously desperate and matter-of-fact. The augmented instrumentation adds to the emotional pull. Oh, the video ain’t too shabby, either. “Episode 15 – The Girl Who Was Death” will be instantly recognizable to those who have seen one of the band’s recent performances. The refrain of “You have just been poisoned” is effective in its directness and repetition. This is music design to make in impact. It does.
