Million Dead resurrected


WOODY Guthrie, Bob Dylan, The Levellers - every generation has their social commentators.
And nobody around at the moment flies the flag for disaffected youth quite so brilliantly as folk troubadour Frank Turner.
However a huge swath of the growing fan base of Turner don't actually realise he cut his teeth screaming as frontman of hardcore act Million Dead.
A Song To Ruin, Million Dead's debut which is re-released on Monday with a few bonus extras six years after its first outing, showcases his former self brilliantly, and may even enlighten a few of his newer fans.
Because one listen to Breaking The Back or Smiling At People On Trains brings it all back, if you were aware of him before he threw off the fuzzy feedback shroud and went solo.
