DEADLOSS SUPERSTAR – Fear Stalks The City (In Tranquillo)

Posted: January 14th, 2006, by Marceline Smith

A blast from the past if ever there was one. Deadloss ‘Motherfuckin’ Superstar were one of Aberdeen’s top local bands back in the days when I lived there and responsible for all manner of rawk-related shenanigans. And these days they’ve even been joined by James and Neal from Aberdeen’s much-missed nu-metal Busted, TAR. All it really needs is a song entitled Fit like? and pictures of them hanging out in Drakes and I’d sink into some kind of nostalgic stupor. Anyway, unsurprisingly, this is RAWK with a capital GRR and I don’t read Kerrang! enough to make any meaningful references, but this kicks the ass of a lot of stuff that passes for popular rock music these days. There’s some howling impassioned vocals, lots of riffing and the sort of tunes that make The Kids throw themselves around in crazed abandon. All it needs now is a ridiculous video of them playing in a desert and they’ll really be on to something.

Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
