Dead on the Live Wire

- UK Edinburgh, UK Alternative / Industrial / Punk


Bio: Dead on the Live Wire have been thrashing around for a couple of years in a world of their own choosing, roughing up the aggressors locally and internationally (in small carefully measured doses, filthy increments if you will). Very now, very rah! rah! rah! If you like it like that. Which you ... See Full Bio

““Dead On The Live Wire, who're all post-punk industrial glee wrapped up in ominous, evil old drum machine beats and a glare'n'stare look to kill for.””

    Chris and Heather AKA Dead On The Live Wire are bidding a fond farewell to Edinburgh! Having finaly realised that they truly arer destined for better things they are off down south to get rich- or get drunk trying! What better way to send off everyones favorite electropunkrockindiedarlings than a final blow out at Henry's. BE THERE! DEAD ON THE LIVE WIRE I'm not saying that they're going to kidnap your children or anything it just might be an idea to change your locks. Dead on The Live Wire are an excellent combination of boy/girl, guitar/bass, rock/techno. Their hedonisticly menacing sound combines industrial beats, heavy riffs, double bass and aggressive lyrics from both parties. Stylisticly they dip their toes into drum and bass, punk, techno, metal, hip hop, ska- basicly they play what they want and have a lot of fun while doing it! http://www.myspace.com/deadonthelivewire COMPTROLLER I'm not saying he's insane I just think its good that they'll be letting him out for the night. Comptroller AKA Michael Cox makes chiptune music out of a variety of old video game consoles. His tunes take in elements of digital hardcore, indutrial noise, breakcore and extratone. So yeah, basicly, its going to be heavy as fuck. Awesome! http://soundcloud.com/comptroller SISTER BITCH I'm not saying they're cultists, just dont share any kool aid with them. Sister Bitch create a billowing fog of industrial drones where melencholy vocals tell dark tales over lurking basslines and skull shattering riffs. Imagine if Joy Division were really depressed. And distorted. http://soundcloud.com/sister-bitch

    et the Psychotic Electronics revv to life once more in Edinburgh! For one night only, see some of the most exciting Scottish electronic acts in the gloomy cave room in Bannermans! Surgyn, back from their epic string of high-profile support slots with bands such as Faderhead and Angelspit, return to Edinburgh to show all you ugly fucker's how to make yourself beautiful... if you can survive being dragged to the threshold of pain and back... Not one to miss! Nightmare Frequency crawl back from the depths of which they came, dragging their condemnation ball and chains out from the safety of the static. This is what it sounds like when politics collapse. Back from the acclaimed debut gig, with new material, new tracks and a new found anger, you won't be dissapointed. Dead on the Live Wire bring the pain in the form of rapid beats and crushing guitars, you'd be surprised how much noise a crazy young lad and a civilised, polite woman can make. Even if you did want to miss this, you couldn't. You can't run away from Dead on the Live Wire
