GHOSTLY CAST & STORY
Welcome to the Grave Inn!
The Dead was born in a cold and grey winter night in 2001. They spawned their own poisoned mixture of 60s garage punk rock n roll country blues rock stroll and released the three records "FIESTA DE LOS MUERTOS" (Crazy Love Records), "TAKE YOU HOME" (808/Leech Redda) and "THE DEAD ARE DEAD" (Chop Records). When they reached a musical fork in the road in 2009, the lineup mutated: Johnny Bravo left the band and Vincenzo Muerto (vocals, guitar) and Tommy Tombstone (drums) met the two long goners Dr. Perdido (lead guitar, harp, back vocal) and Diemito ( bass, back vocal), who joined The Dead existence.
The two new deadliners fit in the zombie-combo like a tombstone to a grave, and for next two years, The Dead burrowed down in their crypt spewing a bunch of new songs. During this escape, their musical style morphed into a new kind of tranced garage country rock n roll rock rhythms, all shocked up and twisted together into the bands unique toxic brew of RAW ALPINE ROCK N ROLL.
In 2011 The Dead decided to force their new sounds out of their caves and emerged from their graves to record their new album "AT THE GRAVE INN" (Subversive Records) at Admiral James T's Dalastudios. The new record turned out to be the bands most varied and bone-swinging one - due to the different sparks that each new member brought in. And it has a variety that The Dead also deliver in their bone ratteling live show.
Over the years The Dead played more than a hundred shows all over Switzerland (including Reithalle, lUsine, Jazzkantine, XTRA, Gaskessel, Sedel, Dynamo, Nouveau Monde, Galvanik, Bikini Test, Industrie 45, Dampfzentrale, Gaskessel, Schüür, Gaswerk, Hirscheneck, Tap Tab, Rote Fabrik, Grabenhalle, ISC, Salzhaus, Fri-Son, Proger, Kofmehl, Oxx, Himmel, Safari Beat Club) with skull slurping bands like The Meteors, Baby Woodrose, Demented Are Go, Frentic Flinstones, Long Tall Texas, The Monsters, Reverend Beat-Man, Texas Terry Bomb, Hillbilly Moon Explosion, Gutter Queens, Moped Lads, The Fuckadies, The Hormonauts and many more. In 2004 and 2007 they toured through Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia and played at the legendary "Make Trouble At The Chappel Festival" in Brussels rock n roll church.
