Dead Social Club


Born from a drunken pub conversation in an east London boozer late 2009, Dead Social Club are a six piece alt-indie band consisting of Steve (keys) Paul (vocals) Joel (guitar) Rich (guitar) and the unholy alliance of rhythm section Nic Gilham (bass) and Nick Gillam (drums). It was obvious from the beginning that while Rich wanted to be Metallica and The Cure, Steve wanted to be Depeche mode, Nic wanted to be Joy Division and Paul, any of the above (apart from Metallica and Depeche Mode) Read more on Last.fm
Born from a drunken pub conversation in an east London boozer late 2009, Dead Social Club are a six piece alt-indie band consisting of Steve (keys) Paul (vocals) Joel (guitar) Rich (guitar) and the unholy alliance of rhythm section Nic Gilham (bass) and Nick Gillam (drums). It was obvious from the beginning that while Rich wanted to be Metallica and The Cure, Steve wanted to be Depeche mode, Nic wanted to be Joy Division and Paul, any of the above (apart from Metallica and Depeche Mode), which resulted in cheery song titles and singles like: “Let Love Die” and “This Painting is Cursed”. What actually occurred was a weird mix of the lot (apart from Metallica) as well as song bumps, loud swearing, crusty sandwiches making Joel tired and really, really good Jools Holland impressions. However, we must have been doing something right as gig followed gig including; headlining the Foals after party in Brixton, gracing the stage of 2,000 capacity London Scala with Bloc Party DJ’ing in tow and playing Conincx Pop Festival in Holland with The Boxer Rebellion and The Crookes. We also have attracted airplay on BBC 6 Introducing (tracks of the week podcast and national airplay), BBC London, Phantom FM and Absolute radio (shortlisted to track of the week) in the UK, as well as further afield in Canada and The U.S. Online, our songs have been used for videos of skimpy ladies in knickers (FHM) and been made free download of the week by O’Neil (the massive surf brand not the faux Irish pub chain). What now? Well…our latest single ‘Sunlight’ is due for release through Bermondsey’s very own Animal Farm record label September 2012. Really? You make us blush! “There’s a bit of Franz in there, and there’s The Rakes hanging around the periphery too. Love the keys.

Great little indie track, destined for a goal of the month competition montage” Pete Donaldson, Absolute Radio on ‘Stockholm’ “There’s certainly a vague hint of a less doom laden Depeche Mode in the vocal delivery combined with a dash of 80′s post punk, yet they manage to make it sound fresh and vital with big chorus’s that stay on the right side of epic without ever sounding over blown” Andy Von Pip, www.vonpipmusicalexpress.wordpress.com Let’s first say, it is refreshing to hear a band so unselfconscious as Dead Social Club. Electronica? Check. Keyboards? Check. A sound that pitches itself somewhere in the interstellar region between Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and Simple Minds? Closer still.

It is pop, and it’s not pop. It’s rock, and it’s not even rock. Guitars don’t seem to matter to DSC as much as good song-writing and nifty fingers at the effects station, though when they come to the fore there are some striking riffs on ‘Syrian Kisses’, particularly on single ‘Let Love Die’. Essential listening best of 2011 http://www.live4ever.uk.com/2011/09/live4ever-presents-dead-social-club/ “Let Love Die (the recent single) had the crowd dancing like maniacs as if it were already an indie club classic. The seventh track, Too Young, was my personal favourite – it had the charm of an early Depeche Mode ditty, whilst still feeling like a modern indie summer hit.

They played an incredible show, with energy that continued into the night (and next morning).” Metrotwin.com review of London Scala gig supporting Bloc Party DJ set Stockholm single - This almost-6-minutes epic is just a perfect diffusion of rock guitars, electronic sounds, deep and solid bass and drums which remind you of Depeche Mode and Joy Division. The combination of cinematic chorus and climax and the charismatic yet nearly melancholic voice and lyrics makes this song have a potential of timelessness which is, without a doubt, just gonna steal your heart. http://eartoears.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/music-of-the-week-dead-social-club/ Read more on Last.fm.
