Thee Deadtime Philharmonic - Live at The Hairy Dog, Derby - The Hairy Dog - Derby

With special guests: Savage Sellout https://www.facebook.com/savageselloutband/and The Ruins https://www.facebook.com/groups/369130063189106/Thee Deadtime Philharmonic are playing a few select gigs this November to promote their new Double A single ‘Testify (dues paid in full) and Hardlines’ which will be released ahead of their second album out in 2020.Their first album, ‘Estate of the Heart’, was self-released in 2018 and received widespread acclaim with major music press coverage, a TV appearance, and BBC6 airplay. The band have also received support from iconic musicians such as Mick Jones (The Clash) Steve White (Style Council/Weller) and Jarvis Cocker (Pulp).Based in the ex-mining town of Swadlincote, South Derby, Murdoch’s songwriting reflects the carnage left behind in a town still on its knees from Thatcher’s strangle hold on the working classes.Relentless gigs all over the UK (including all the major cities and the nowhere towns where most bands don’t bother to go) have gained the band an ever-growing army of dangerously devoted fans. Their militant working class stance caught the eye of Clash legend Mick Jones, who took Deadtime out on the road as special guests, and Murdoch has since recorded a single and album with The Tribunes (out on Honest Jons Records and featuring Mick Jones’s rhythm section from Carbon/Silicon). The Clash connection continued when Strummerville (The Joe Strummer Foundation For New Music) invited Deadtime into the family by funding their first single, double a-side ‘Moths/Spine’ with producer Paul Tipler (Idlewild, 80s Matcbox, Dr Feelgood, Elastica). Strummerville also added ‘Spine’ (demo) to their prestigious DIY download page, where it held the No.1 slot for nine months in the Strummerville chart. Among the band’s other supporters was the late Michael Davis of the legendary MC5.Deadtime continue to receive outstanding reviews for their high octane, raw, emotive live shows. International and national radio airplay for the band has come from Don Letts, Jarvis Cocker and Tom Robinson (BBC Introducing/BBC6) to name a few. Deadtime have also appeared on Channel 4 (Strummerville Sessions) Russia Today (Going Underground) and had Michael Socha from This is England/Being Human appear in their ‘Bad Lad’ video. ”Musically and lyrically brilliant” – Tom Robinson (BBC6, Activist, Songwriter) ”Great working class band, documenting the times we live in” – Mick Jones (The Clash) ”Excellent” – Jarvis Cocker ”One of my favourite 2018 albums” – Steve White (Style Council, Paul Weller, The Art of Drumming)theedeadtimephilharmonic.com£5.00 on door (£4.00 Concessions)£4.00 adavance tickets) Special guests: Savage Sellout and TBATICKET LINK BELOW
