After almost forty live dates around the USA, Europe, Russia and Australia in 2006, Snog emerged from the recording studio in 2007 (unlike the Romans of which they sing) victorious. For their latest release, The Last Days of Rome, Snog turn their back on their most recent outings of barbed satirical electro-punk and instead offer a brand new album of historical narratives and charming tone poems set in palatable electro-pop surroundings. The album tells tales of the building of the pyramids of Egypt, pirates throwing their maps overboard, Roman Centurions, London being built in the Middle Ages, and more, all of which Snog promise us have no allusions to the modern global political climate. All these pieces are skillfully presented in the agitated and rhythmic manner that today's youth find so attractive yet they are also carefully crafted so as to never actually say anything at all, thus avoiding any needlessly dangerous or uncomfortable moments. This album has 18 tracks. The 2 missing tracks were just silence.
