"the Dead C are a New Zealand based noise rock trio made up of members Bruce Russell, Michael Morley and Robbie Yeats." [Wikipedia]

Dead CDead C

...The Dead C have announced a brief Stateside visit, kicking off in Philly on the 12th and wrapping just a few days later in the Chi. All kinds of noiseniks and other weirdos are coming out of the woodwork to support the Dead C on this trek, including Thurston Moore's Northampton Wools project, Wolf Eyes, Six Organs of Admittance, and Sightings.

So what's the occasion for this rare overseas voyage? Why, a new Dead C record, naturally. Secret Earth packs in four presumably long tracks and arrives October 14 on CD and vinyl thanks to Ba Da Bing.

But that's not all! Ba Da Bing is also teaming with Jagjaguwar to reissue on vinyl a pair of Dead C classics originally released by New Zealand's legendary Flying Nun label (the Clean, the Chills, the Bats, the Verlaines, etc). [Pitchfork]

NYC are the lucky ones with Thurston Moore on the bill and those tickets are on sale. All dates and a live video below...

awww, look at that, bright and early and we already have the haters and funny people posting. wow. by sets up a fantastic site to educate all, and day by day it turns into a forum for bashing people. i can't help but wonder if you act like this in real life or is the internet a facade you hide behind?

It's a facade - they feel so smart when they hit the submit button and get to see themselves in "print". In real life they are meek little sheep.

This show will be amazing, I just wish the NYC show could have ALL of the bands on the bill!

To all the people slagging this show: Please, yes, do stay far far away from Bowery Oct. 13. Don't buy a ticket. Go to some other show. Thank you!

21+? what the fuck

I've waited more than fifteen years to see this band. You can't imagine how great this show will be, even if the group plays no songs I recognize.

i wish i had a fake id for reasons such as this

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 11:36 PM

either they lower the age limit to 18+ or i'm going to get one just for this

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2008 2:40 PM

Secret Earth is amazing, so I expect the show will be superb as well. Really excited for this. And with Sightings and Thurston/Nace on the bill, there are openers I actually want to see. Sweet!

why is the bowery show 21+ ?

You know Thurston Moore/...maybe he should forget about soslo gigs/cds and figure out how to make a Sonic youth cd on the level of Daydream.
