The Dead 60s

Stand Up

Dead 60s : Fred Perry Gallery
Remember the so-called ‘Summer Of Ska’? Us neither. With skanking now about as popular as the Glasto soundman at a Killers gig, Scouse spookcore obsessives The Dead 60s have undertaken a career swerve so abrupt you can still smell the burning rubber. It’s the result of a year attempting to convert the good folk of Buttfuck, Idaho to King Tubby. “Stand up for your man”, sings Matt McManamon over a musclebound jangle designed to knock Razorlight off playlists worldwide. Fans of ‘Riot Radio’ may be perplexed, but it might just work.
