There’s no “correct” way to respond to The Dead C’s music. With a catalogue spanning from the subversion of traditional song structure to stomping out and obliterating the very notion, New Zealand’s Michael Morley, Bruce Russell and Robbie Yeats have continually made the most crushing, expansive and intelligent rock noise ever to be heard. Just a glance at their peers who are fans (Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Comets On Fire, Black Dice) shows the league in which they play.
Any fans of Lightning Bolt, Black Dice, Sunn 0))), Sightings, Acid Mothers Temple, and/or Growing can now appreciate noise rock’s forefathers. It’s spacious here. Welcome.
If you’re in New Zealand and want to order Dead C merchandise, or if you’re just a huge fan, be sure to check out Flying Nun Records!
