The Dead 60s

The Dead 60s Biography

Coming off an extremely successful 2004 where they toured with The Thrills, Morrissey and Kasabian, The Dead 60s have gained critical acclaim for their UK hit single, "Riot Radio," which arrives at U.S. radio April 19.

Hailing from Liverpool,
The Dead 60s sound nothing like anything the city has ever produced. Putting classic songwriting aside, this foursome brings wired-up punk energy, super heavy reggae grooves and booming dub echoes to the forefront. The Dead 60s have always been determined to stay totally separate from the insular music scene around them. "We want to make a social comment," says bassist Charlie Turner. "Our songs should be graffitied on every wall in the country. We're interested in sloganeering, not interested in proper songwriting in the conventional sense."

The Dead 60s - Matt McManamon (vocals/guitars), Charlie Turner (bass), Ben Gordon (guitar/organ) and Bryan Johnson (drums) - have been honing their radical assault since early 2003. Previously only released as singles in the UK under the Deltasonic label, the bands first full-length studio album was produced by Central Nervous System at The Ranch in Liverpool.
