Dead Fly Buchowski
A Quiet Life
Wednesday January 26th @ Dry Bar, Manchester. £4/ £5 otd, Doors 7:30 p.m.
Emerging from the fertile underground of the Scottish music scene, Dead Fly Buchowski link follow their successful recent appearance at the Star & Garter with a second Manchester date at the Dry Bar on January 26th. Recent signings to Beggars Banquet records, the band precede the gig with the release of hotly awaited debut single 'Blackout' on January 17th.
Producing a blend of music described by themselves as “one part grunge, one part blues, one part soul and four parts rock”, DFB formed in late summer 2001. The band played their first gigs later that year and built up a following by gigging constantly around their home city of Glasgow. Comprising an Austrian, a Scot, a Londoner and an Irishman, the mix of different backgrounds fuels their heady blend of fuzz-and-psych edged blues rock and roll that received rave reviews when the band toured the UK for the first time late last year.
With support headed by local favourites the For Tomorrows, the gig promises to be a treat for fans of fresh exciting rock and roll and is sure to whet the appetite for the band's forthcoming debut album due later this year.
“Dead Fly Buchowski sound like a bunch of down and outs who stumbled across some guitars, turned them up loud and played like the devil was after their hides” Radio 1 OneMusic, August 2003.
“… every ounce of energy has been poured into the last four minutes, like a life flashing away in front of your eyes… This is a brooding and at times menacing demo, that points to Dead Fly Buchowski leading a rock and roll renaissance. And all from an angle that no-one else seems yet to have discovered.” Manuel Ecostos, Manchestermusic.co.uk
