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!).
