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!).

Caution Horses @ The Cowley Club Brighton 01.04.10

Caution Horses @ The Cowley Club Brighton 01.04.10

This was another set from the Cowley Club gig that the Apologies I Have None download below also came from.  It was a jam packed night with Dan from The Deadbeat stressed out to the max in promoter role (I actually thought his head might explode at one point when the backline failed to appear).  As it happened the gig was a roaring success; Dan did an ace job creating a great mixed bill and Caution Horses played an urgent, pummeling set with the new drummer giving the band a much more aggressive and powerful edge.  If you haven’t heard of them before imagine a fine melting pot of Shellac, Mclusky and The Pixies – yes that good I shit you not.   With more tours and bigger gigs coming up there is no better time to be checking this lot out and getting hold of one of their lovely handmade CDs.  Do not miss out and be crying over ebay in a few years.

SUGAR COATED
