INTRO DR. DEMO DEMO OF THE MONTH


Deadwax - She’s A Queen www.deadwaxband.co.uk


Deadwax have got it tough. From the cover of their newest single, ’She’s A Queen’, you might have trouble distinguishing them from every other Topman-donning indie urchin collective scouring the gutter of the Capital for that bewildering break. The difference with Deadwax however, is that this is far from an act. Their ill-fi tting blazers and needle-point shoes are testament to their rock and roll antics. Conjuring elements of stoned-out seventies Zeppelin vibes with blistering Jack White-esque riffage, this glaring four-piece plant their indie-rock seed in the belly of a blues beast.


Johnny5thWheel&thecowards - WhereDidISleepLastNight www.facebook.com/followthewheel


Pulled from various corners of the country but rooted in Manchester, Johnny5thWheel thrive under a shroud of oddity while crafting their melodramatic swells of jazz-fusion. The masked troupe’s debut single, ‘WhereDidISleepLastNight’ draws on elements from the left-fi eld and beyond. Hints of Coltrane and New Yorker, Thomas Traux, make themselves present through the spaciously harmonious minimalism, while eerie coos of Pagan-folk slither through the underbelly of this brass- throbbing anti-pop collective. If you’re looking for something different, Johnny5thWheel&thecowards could be the answer.


Stone Them Crows - The Villain www.myspace.com/


Chief among rock and rolls various priorities, installing a storm of depravity into the psyche of the listener is well up there. Stone Them Crows adorn to this ideology and take you to the edge on their newest scuzz-garage romp, The Villain. Coughing up distortion through a rugged SG, this Hampshire four-piece trail in the wake of the Jim Jones Revue had they opted for an education in Sabbath and not Jerry Lee. Erupting solos often over-saturate grit-laden rock like this but STC use them to their advantage, spitting up licks to the heavens before deciding on hell as their place of rest. It suits them.


Dexters - Start To Run http://soundcloud.com/dextersband/start-to-run-demo


Surfacing online a couple of months back, London fi ve- piece Dexters debut demo Start to Run was a deliberately enigmatic debut. Their incendiary chorus-peaking bout of distinctly urban dwelling indie was offset by a sing-along frivolity. Buried somewhere between The Clash’s potent gasp and The Jam’s dapper popisms with hints of the modern, in particular Jamie T’s ferocious lyricism and The Cribs endowment for a paramount chorus, these young vagabonds have the ability to become something of a perfect indie rock band.
