Dead Uncles from New Haven, CT is one of my favorite punk bands of the past bunch of years. I first heard ‘em when I was looking to do a record forThe Credentials. The band suggested a split with Dead Uncles. I checked out what I could online and fucking loved it right off the bat. I wrote to Brian, the bands drummer, and got my hands on everything I could – the self released “Cut Down To Sighs” 7″, a self-titled 7″ on Shock To The System label, and a split cassette with Dylan Bredeau. All killer, no filler. I put out the now classic (in my own mind) Dead Uncles / The Credentials split 7″ and was fortunate enough to meet the guys and play a show with them up in Cambridge, MA for Smash It Dead Fest.
Check out the Dead Uncles track from the split 7″ with The Credentials below.
Sometime between Smash It Dead and now the band broke up. But not without recording an EPIC full-length first. The album was released in limited quantity on cassette – but never available online for sale. The band resigned to the fact that “Stock Characters” would be filed in the dustbin of history.
My reaction was “this aggression will not stand, man!” Mark my words, I am going to will this masterpiece into existence on vinyl in 2013.
We’ve got two new 7”es available for purchase in our online store or for streaming and name-your-price download at our bandcamp.
First up, we’ve got the DEAD UNCLES / THE CREDENTIALS split 7” which is probably the best songs yet from each of these bands - packaged in a cardboard 7” sleeve with a removable paper strip with all the artwork being a collaboration between the bands. Mastered at Mammouth Sound Mastering by Dan Randall.
And secondly, we’ve finally got the long-awaited GO WHITE BRONCO “Life As A Monument” 7” single. GO WHITE BRONCO is acoustic guitars and three-part harmonies from Lubrano (Iron Chic, Wax Phantom, Small Arms Dealer, etc.), Lou (Fellow Project, Small Arms Dealer, On The Might of Princes), and Pipes (Love Panther.)
