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)
