Last Man Down


Contrasting their blatant power with simple yet earthquake style beats, and their loud yet educated glass shattering northern mouths, Last Man Down take you on a cross-country drive through personal triumph, broken down towns and broken down hearts with their beautifully uncompromising hand crafted masterpieces. The Cheshire based four-piece consists of Mike (Vocals/Guitar), the brothers: Alex (Vocals/Bass) and Ash (Vocals/Drums), and Matt (Vocals/Guitar). Read more on Last.fm
Contrasting their blatant power with simple yet earthquake style beats, and their loud yet educated glass shattering northern mouths, Last Man Down take you on a cross-country drive through personal triumph, broken down towns and broken down hearts with their beautifully uncompromising hand crafted masterpieces. The Cheshire based four-piece consists of Mike (Vocals/Guitar), the brothers: Alex (Vocals/Bass) and Ash (Vocals/Drums), and Matt (Vocals/Guitar). Mike, Alex, and Ash had been close friends for years, making music together in an old bust up church they converted in to the LMD head quarters, eventually drafting in Matt 'The Glasses' Martin from the nearby town of Stoke-on-Trent to finalise the LMD army. These tunnel-visioned troopers have spent the last two years breaking their backs and their bank balances out on the road, developing their own sound like a rubber ball bouncing between rock, punk and beats, and building a well deserved reputation as a hard-working band. Debut single, "Killing Time" is totally guaranteed to keep people nailed to the wall with its escapist wailing, managing to separate the masses and then bring them back together, like a drink down the pub after a fight at a wedding. With its infectious beats courtesy of Ash Rowe, and tuning fork bending vocals from Mike Richardson, "Killing Time" tells the tale of hometown grey - a cocktail of contempt, passion, sorrow, and empathy.

Lyrics hit the jugular of today's lost generation, "What's it like to run in circles? / What's it like to feel worthless?", until the saga closes with the "runaway" screams of Matt, echoing thoughts of a young protagonist, before the screams are silenced. There's something different about the sound of this band, though the pop sensibilities of songs like "Just Stay Home" become obviously apparent, with a chorus you'll be singing for weeks, forged with the gravely yet consumable voice of co-frontman Alex, there's a little something extra that manages to arrest the ears and hold you captive. Drawing influences from so many different genres has left Last Man Down very difficult to categorise - 'one of the few bands that sound like no one else, just hanging out with somebody else, but they don't get on very well!' Debut single, "Killing Time" is due for release on 28th July 2008 through Karate Kid Records. Read more on Last.fm.
