The Dead C

New Zealand

Over the last 3 decades, Dunedin trio THE DEAD C, have held a special place in the noise rock band annals of New Zealand music history. Since forming in 1987, Michael Morley, Bruce Russell and Robbie Yeats have continuously walked a tightrope stretched between rock and free improvisation, from which they have yet to fall. They have pursued a path both fully international and thoroughly underground. Their performances remain infrequent, even at home, and are always unrepeatable. Having thrown up nearly 30 albums over the years, a new album ‘Rare Ravers’ is being released this year on New York based Ba Da Bing Records. Widely regarded as one of the most influential bands to ever come out of New Zealand, Laneway welcomes The Dead C – don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to see them in all their experimental, distorted, guitar noise glory.
