The Deadbeat – Demo II

The Deadbeat are not only great mates of mine but they’re also one of my favourite bands of the last few years.  Rising from the remenants of Bastion and The Small Mercies they’ve carved a great path of their own with the great post rock’n roll sound reminding me of Hot Snakes, New Bomb Turks or The Bronx.  They’ve very kindly let me upload their new demo for free download before their upcoming final tour (hopefully they’ll get back together once Tony comes back from travelling but just in case I’d suggest getting to one of their last gigs).

So download their new demo from here and then head to one of their last gigs

I’d reccomend their LEEDS GIG (and not just as I’m putting it on..!)

The Dead Beat @ Cowley Club Brighton 01.04.10

The Deadbeat @ The Cowley Club Brighton 01.04.10

The Dead Beat are a 50% London, 50% Brighton post-rock ‘n’ roll machine.  If that isn’t enough hyperbole for one sentence then this is a new(ish) band that developed from the remnants of The Small Mercies and then added in one Dan Bowden from the much missed Bastion.  Sounding absolutely nothing like their past bands The Deadbeat invoke the sounds of The Bronx, Shellac and at times Fugazi or The Hot Snakes, no bad thing as you can imagine.

This set saw frontman Dan also acting as promoter for the night which might explain the slight sense of urgency in their set as they try to keep things on time (at a punk show at the Cowley Club?  Good luck with that one!).

If you enjoy their set head over here for a free download of their incredible EP.
