DEAD MAN'S SHADOW

Formed: London, England, UK

Dead Man's Shadow

 

Thoughtful UK82 punks who avoided the thrash'n' bash approach of their contemporaries and have steadfastedly refused to re-emerge on the nostalgia circuit. Their debut EP, Neighbours! was recorded as a quintet, all all subsequent releases were recorded as a power trio. They enjoyed only minor commercial success (even by the standards of the time), but have achieved critical success, with some quarters hailing them as one of the best punk bands of the period.
