• dead! The Golden Age of Not Even Trying (LP, £19.25)

    label: infectious

    Dead! are a band of four fiercely creative people in their late teens and early 20s. These ambitious, imaginative youngsters found themselves in a cultural cul-de-sac as they watched their music scene disappear around them on their native Isle Of Wight a few years ago and decided to do something about it. The quartet arenít the sort of people who wait for opportunities: they go out and hunt them down. With a fire in their belly, they formed a band, toured Europe off their own back, moved into a house in London together, released their own music, made their own videos and now have a fervent fanclub who follow their every move. They are one of the UKís most exciting new rock & roll bands, armed with a stack of raucous, punk anthems and a gung-ho, do-or-die attitude. This was the way it had to be. There are no half measures for Dead!.
