Biography

Cambridge, United Kingdom (2009 – present)

Formed in 2009 by Uncle Acid (guitars, organ, vocals), Kat (bass) and Red (drums) in the old wastelands of witchery and paranoia, Cambridge band Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats deliver the new sound of 60s terror. This popular beat combo crawled from its secluded hideout in 2009 to record their debut album, ‘Vol. 1’ for Killer Candy Records. With a limited release in 2010, the album was warmly received with the track ‘Witches Garden’ appearing on a Classic Rock Magazine cover CD. The band also drew the attention of Leif Edling from legendary doom band Candlemass, who would later recommend them to Lee Dorrian at Rise Above.

The group’s second album Blood Lust (2011) was recorded in a dilapidated barn known as The Slaughter House,with Bassist Harsh Ray who played with them in 3 songs. Using old fuzz pedals and broken amps to create a lo fi saturated sound, the entire album was laid to rest on tape in the space of four cold months. Blood Lust tells the story of a drug crazed sadist who embarks on a witchfinding killing spree before meeting his own demise at the withered hands of Satan. The bands intention was to create an audio equivalent of a 60’s exploitation horror film. After a steady start in sales, demand for the album eventually grew beyond all expectations with all pressings quickly selling out, including a Rise Above vinyl pressing of 350 which sold out in just 24 hours.

This bastard band of weirdos will plunder on into the 2012 apocalypse with festival dates and other live appearances in the UK and Europe. The acid nightmare has truly begun…
