The Dead Beats - Monsters Prefer Blondes


  Ok, I want to conjure up a little scenario for you. Imagine Zombie Elvis taking a fast ride with the Shangri Las while listening to a Ramones, Cramps mix tape and drinking Motorhead Beer. That's the vibe The Dead Beats ( are aiming for. They do a pretty good job. 

  The band line up like this : Johny Skullknuckles (vocals/guitar), The Reverend Paul Confused (guitar/vocals), John "as advertised" (bass) & Ben Grim (drums). If any of those names are familiar you may recognise them as being members or ex members of bands such as Goldblade, Anti Nowhere League, Jayne County, The Business, Poison Hearts, The Confused, Motorvators etc. 

  They released an album last year titled Die Screaming, Marienne! A bakers dozen of horror themed punk n roll with many of the songs being named after genre movies (Drag Me To Hell, The Devil Rides Out, The Night Of The Living Dead etc...). It was very decent Misfits inspired fun. 

  Now they return with a new ep titled Monsters Prefer Blondes. It's another darkly delicious collection of catchy tunes about zombies, chainsaws, death etc. Available on cd or digital download you can get it here :

  This is the title track, it's a cover of a song by The Bones ( that was on their Screwed, Blued and Tattooed album and it's called Monsters Prefer Blondes...
