About Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats
The band was founded in 2009. Kevin (K.R) Starrs struggled to decide on a moniker, and derived the name of the band from Rusty Day (the lead singer of Cactus), who had previously tried to form a band called Uncle Acid And The Permanent Damage Band. Talking about the name, Starrs said "I thought Uncle Acid was kind of interesting in a weird, fucked up, Uncle Sam kind of way".
Using vintage instruments, they began to create their retro aesthetic, which conjures up visions of of groups like Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, and Dio during their heyday. Next to other "modern-retro" groups like Orchid, Witch, and Graveyard, they demonstrate a complete respect and understanding of the doom-psychedelia genre as a whole, and have made valuable contributions with each of their LPs: Volume 1, Blood Lust, and Mind Control.
Each record has built upon the foundations set by the last to bring something truly unique to the table. You can hear the base concepts for the band's style being worked out in Volume 1, before they really find their feet two years later with the critically-acclaimed LP, Blood Lust. Mind Control featured the distorted charm of singles Poison Apple and Mind Crawler, while The Night Creeper promises to devastate fans old and new alike when it sees release on September 4.
The band have released three singles up to this point: "Poison Apple", "Mind Crawler", and "Runaway Girls". Beginning with their sophomore effort, "Blood Lust", the band began to garner widespread critical acclaim for their efforts.
Despite still being relative newcomers to the game, and their lack of presence with mainstream platforms, their records as a whole feature the beautifully distorted lullabies of an age many thought was forgotten; older listeners will be reminded of the famous "Summer of Love" thanks to these catchy pop numbers which have been doused in distortion and dipped in nostalgia, each of them carving its own little place in any sensible listener's mind.
K.R Starrs has explained the concept behind the album "Mind Control" as a sinister tale reminiscent of many groups throughout the latter half of the 20th century. The record tells the story of a cult leader and his followers, recounting their submission of will through promise and, eventually, the prescription of equal parts love, drugs, violence, and intimidation.
