Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats Details
Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats
“Acid Across America” Tour with Danava
From humble beginnings in the witchy flat lands of Cambridgeshire, England, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats have devolved into an international band of street creeps, burnouts and draft dodgers. Since unleashing the monumental, internationally feared and revered set of blood-curdling chainsaw anthems known as Blood Lust, they have been locked away in the barn ignoring all the ensuing hype and publicity, whilst preparing to deliver their own new nightmare message of madness.
It is a fact that Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats have, in recent times, become one of the most talked about rock bands currently in existence. The fact that no one even knew what they looked like until very recently is testimony to the enigma that surrounds this terrifying, yet extremely melodically minded cult. It is another fact that they have become one of the most collectable bands on the planet, with first press vinyl editions of Blood Lust fetching up to and over £700 (yes, British Pounds!) on the collector’s market. Pretty remarkable for a record that is barely two years old.
There are many paths to the jeweled gates of liberation: possession, ecstasy, sacrilege, heresy. Paradox subjugates ego in the transcendent thrust toward the eternally expansive. The star studded spacecraft known as DANAVA, dispatched as it was from America’s rainy northwest coast, emerged on the midnight horizon with an obscure 4 song masterpiece as a shining symbol of freedom in sound.
Critics have done their best to identify this flying object with all manner of convenient but ultimately meaningless qualifiers and all have missed the mark. This is not “stoner rock”, even if the pilots are probably stoned. This is not “progressive rock”, for the boundless soul thwarts gentrification. This is not “space rock”, although their heads are full of meteor dust their boots still waltz in the gutters of Whitechapel sin. This is not “retro rock”, because tomorrow calls even as the third eye glances in reverse to hail electric ancestry. Armed to the teeth with Orgone amplification and mesmeric Luciferian aether, the technicolor demon people have risen from primordial depths to dispel all curses and sever all bonds.
