UN­CLE ACID & T THE DEADBEATS

Q (UK) - - Review | New Albums - DAVE EVERLEY

WASTE­LAND RISE ABOVE RECORDS, OUT NOW Cre­pus­cu­lar Brit psy­cho­nauts step out of the gloom.

Un­cle Acid & The De­abeats’ grave­yard psychedelia and heavy me­tal sludge hides a bub­blegum heart. The Cam­bridge fiends’ fifth LP opens with I See Through You, a bril­liant burst of fuzzy, glam-pop noise which could have been ripped from an old VHS copy of a 1972 Top Of The Pops episode. He­lium-voiced front­man Kevin Starrs is at it again a few songs later on Be­douin, which throws Ba­co­foil shoul­der pads on over its mourn­ing suit. They haven’t ditched the baby with the bath­wa­ter – the grind­ing No Re­turn still sounds like a bunch of un­der­tak­ers go­ing crazy in a gui­tar shop. But it all points to­wards an al­to­gether shinier fu­ture. Lis­ten To: I See Through You | Shock­wave City | Be­douin
