Dead City DealersIn an abrupt turn-around from the music posted yesterday, today I’ve got some working class Pennsylvania punk rockers.
I found the Dead City Dealers a few days ago, liked their music and their attitude and decided to investigate a little further. I found that DCD started life a year or so ago as The Disliked. “Nothing we write is intricate in the least,” was The Disliked’s mantra. “We play three or four chords per song. Sometimes more, but rarely.”
After a couple of personnel shifts, including the departure of vocalist Fidget, The Disliked reemerged as the Dead City Dealers. One thing that remained intact through the shake up was the band's values: “We're not rock stars,” DCD says. “We're regular people. We play music. Period.”
These guys hammer out an uncompromising, get-in-the-fucking-pit, punk rock. They write about things like the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, their hatred of tree-hugging liberals, and drunken shenanigans. This ain’t no Hot Topic poseur band; this is the real deal.
If you like your Oi done up traditionally, Dead City Dealers is the band for you. Once you’re done checking out these songs, you can download all their stuff for free from the DCD MySpace.
