The Dead C Review In Spin

It's definitely a new area, for the Dead C have found their way into Spin. An unlikely destination but no one is complaining. Below is a review posted on

Eternally kranky Kiwi punks prefer noise over pop.

The Dead C

From the late '80s into the 90s, this clamorous, lo-fi New Zealand trio flailed agains the country's thriving indie-pop scene (centered on the Flying Nun label), occasionally creating an outright squalid masterpiece like 1995's White House. They've not budged an iota since, as the cheekily titled Future Artists attests. An overdriven guitar resolutely obliterates the verses of "The Magicians," leaving room aplenty for long, unyielding excursions like "The AMM of Punk Rock" and the apt "Eternity." Throughout the Dead C's din of slow and stubborn drum-thud coupled with wheezing chord organs is as cantankerous as Grandpa himself. ANDY BETA
