‘Dead Uncles have been quietly churning along since 2007, doing a tour or record when circumstances align, but mostly simply honing their brand of slightly-anthemic slop-pop-punk. This lackadaisical approach has fostered moderate amounts of secular rockledge that multiple critics have termed “not bad”. If you had told the members when they were in little league that they would eventually be spending their weekends together in a dying van, waiting interminably to struggle through songs that middle schoolers could play for the benefit of eight people, they likely would have said “who are you, and what’s ‘interminably’ mean?” Which is essentially a less refined phrasing of bassist Matt’s now-immortal words “either way we’re fucked”; a signifying phrase of the Unx ethos, fitting impeccably between their po-faced martyr-on for DIY ethics and their insulating, borderline goofy self-deprecation. Since a given listener lacks the context to extract the totality of this unique Dunkin’ Leadass perspective from their two-minute national treasures, most people just think they “kinda sound like a less good [Aaron Cometbus band]”. However, for some reason they’ve generated sufficient interest to be allowed to pen their biographies on websites not their own, so you can no longer consider yourself among the unwashed masses ignorant of the Slam Dunkles Agenda. It’s time to close your mouth, open your eyes, and SAY “UNCLES”. ’ - http://86drecordsandfanzine.com
