"What attracted me to this band on first sight ⿿ trained in the ⿿school of error⿝ as practised by Maher Shalal Hash Baz and all those other naive orchestral delights, accomplished keyboards man Leighton Craig of the firm belief that where drummers went wrong was when they first started crossing their arms over ⿿ is what still attracts me to them: belief, brevity, melody, resonance, a fondness (acquired from having lived through it) for the early 80s post-Go-Betweens/early Fall mannerisms of derelict Brisbane nightclubs. Stuart Busby not only wields a trumpet like Brightons own Alistair Strachan (Hamilton Yarns, Crayola Lectern) but understands the absolute necessity of controlling (or not controlling) the sound. Guitarist/drummer Eugene Carchesio ⿿ an accomplished, exhibited visual artist in his own right ⿿ much favours the ⿿play once, move on⿝ approach to creating and inventing new songs that cant help attract simple me. One of Eugenes favourite musicians is Jad Fair. How can I argue with that? Im reminded of Monks, Moondog, 4 Gods, Flipper. Too often noise musicians deliberately eschew melody ⿿ as if to admit for a fondness for such is a weakness. The Deadnotes are as unreconstructed and wilfully abstract as the most experimental among us, but at the heart of the music is (usually) a melody, a structure, a beating heart." - Everett True
