There is more than one artist with this name.

1) Dead on TV (USA)

Dead on TV is a local Chicago band with the heady, thought provoking lyrical style of a young Elton John coupled with the large, tubular and apple-headed c*#@ of Neil Diamond during his Sweet Caroline period before he got strung up on coke.
But with frickin’ guitars.

Dead on TV has stroked audiences all over the Midwest with their brand of masturbatory electro-punk narcissism which , coupled with the smash and grab disruption af ADHD lead singer Dan Evans, the brutal machine-like ineptness of drummer Vince Mcaley and a complete and heinous disregard for the life and welfare of the guitar player Xmas Smits has resulted in some of the most epically offensive shows ever removed from youtube for violation of community standards.

When broken on the sidewalk, as well, their 5 debut EP seems to somehow cut deeper than other plastic-coated cd releases.

Venues performed at:
Dead on TV failed to kill or seriously maim audience members all over Chicago in venues such as the Bottom Lounge, The Double Door, Cabaret Metro and Jill’s cousin’s basement (The decorated side, not the side with the washing machine)

Contact Dead on TV at or through a letter writing campaign to your local correctional facility.

    Pretty sure there are two different bands called Dead on TV. The description is written for the English Dead on TV, and Fuck You, I'm Famous I believe is the American Dead on TV.
