The Deadmen have played Rock and Roll Hotel, Red Palace, Black Cat and the Ottobar in the past few months with nary a record or CD in sight. Maybe a t shirt here and there, a couple rough MP3’s on a facebook page, but ultimately the music speaks for itself as fans of Justin Jones and Josh Read continue to show up and hear their collaboration. Leaning heavier than the Driving Rain or Revival, they trade vocals and harmonize over Conrado Bokoles’ and Paul Garisto’s pummeling rhythm section. While they ARE working on a proper EP, you can catch them live again tomorrow night at IOTA. Check out David Y. Lee’s video of their acoustic take on Let Your Fingers Rule and some pics of The Deadmen doing what they do. They’re just like us! They eat waffles! They sit on couches!
