Michael Knowles the name you fear for your children’s ears for fear of them turning into evil monsters has the employ of his STD’s Steve & Dean
Spawned from the ashes of a band that imploded trying to write the most complicated songs known to man, the two heads that are GagReflex decided that they needed a new MO. Enter a new approach – brave, obtuse, defiant, yet simpler, and more fun – bass and drums – that’s all you need, right? GagReflex thought so and got cracking on that basis. A fresh new blend emerged – absolute punk rock, with alternative pop tendencies – something to leave an odd but addictive taste on the palate.
The lineup never got finished. It never will.
The dead dads club impressed with their late 60’s inspired sound, with touches of the doors, the Beatles and beyond. Fans of fellow malvernites, the white feather collective, should find plenty to enjoy, and based on the rousing reception the band received, it would seem they’ve already made plenty of friends. On the evidence of this outing, I’d suggest it’s well worth keeping an eye open for them in the near future’ will munn, slap magazine. (August 2017)
