Artist: DEAD C, THE
Format: Double CD
Label: Ba Da Bing!
|"Every time I hear their recordings, Im reminded that they are one of the greatest rock bands to ever pick up a guitar and attempt to play it wrong. Listening to The Dead C causes me to think differently. It brings up emotions with which Im otherwise unfamiliar. It strikes to the essence of my being and reveals what otherwise remains hidden. I take solace in knowing that one out of every thirty of you reading this know exactly what Im talking about. On the spectrum of The Dead Cs sound output, Trouble could very well be seen as springing from the same realm as the massive Driver UFO, one of the bands greatest tracks ever, off Harsh 70s Reality. Theres a youthful aggression here, a churning anger, deadened by pounding drone. Much like H70s, this record serves as a gateway drug -- if you were ever looking for an album to play to a newbie curious about experimental rock, this would be it. The visceral strength of their performance trembles out of the speakers. The magnificence of their stamina survives each album side." - Ben Goldberg, Ba Da Bing.|

Title: On the Outbreak of Civil War - Good Consul is Punished
Label: I Dischi Del Barone
|"The tracks were recorded in April 2017 during sessions for the new LP, at the Pioneer Hall, Port Chalmers. We hired the village hall for an afternoon, set up the studio and laid down enough tracks for an album and a single. This is the sound of the Dead C inside a large wooden box, brutal and refined; loud and lazy; indifferent and unrelenting. After 31 years our sound is perfect in its total rejection of any standards other than the completely arbitrary ones we set ourselves. We cannot be meaningfully assessed against any measure except the Dead C, and our overall trajectory is still climbing." - Bruce Russell. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm.|
