Uncle Acid & The DeadbeatsVolume 1 Cherry Red Vinyl Edition
Recorded on a tight budget of stashed dole money and with little knowledge or regard for conventional recording techniques, the chaotic results speake for themselves;
Distorted vocals, out of tune harmonies, ragged musicianship and everything pushed to the red. The clatter of mic stands falling over mid performance, the rustling of lyric papers, the missed key changes and flubbed lines. Everything you would want to avoid is here. Self funded, self recorded and self released to a fanfare of silence, VOL 1 was a true D.I.Y. effort from start to finish. No great ambition, no target audience, no press support. Just a collection of songs for anyone who would listen. With it’s mix of budget horror lyrics, Everly Brothers obsessed harmonies, downer rock riffs, overly long guitar solos and bizzarre high pitched vocals, Vol 1 had very limited appeal outside a small group of underground fanatics.
