DOWNLOAD: Dead Child - "Sweet Chariot" (MP3) from Attack, out now on Quarterstick.

Dead Child

Sometimes you just want to forget about texture, subtlety, beauty, and building momentum and you just want to pummel someone over the head. Repeatedly. In a good way. I am pretty sure that's how David Pajo must have felt when he and some of his comrades from the mighty Slint decided to give birth (sorry, couldn't resist) to Dead Child. Think 80s thrash, Maiden, The Sword. Dead Child is:

Dave Pajo (Slint, Tortoise)
Tony Bailey (Lords)
Todd Cook (Slint)
Dahm (Phantom Family Halo)
Michael McMahan (Slint)
Members of Slint AND Lords in the same band. Ouchie. Their tour started last night in Kentucky, and tickets are on sale for two upcoming NYC shows. All dates below....

Fri Apr 11 Louisville, KY Cahoots

I'm digging the Dead Child CD too. I just posted an interview I did with David Pajo last week. He's been called out on some message boards as being a "fake" metal dude. He answers those allegations and more.

Michael McMahan played in the Slint reunion shows, not on any of the records. That would be his brother Brian. Todd Cook was also someone who played in the reunion shows, not the original line up.

I was at the Louisville Dead Child show & it was so strange to see these bands I know & love playing this thrash kind of stuff....but it was awesome

I've got a few pics here, but the venue is a dive bar with no stage and no lights...and it's where Tony works, which is kind of funny...

child abuse is a much better name and a much better band.
