Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats – “Mind Crawler” Music Video
One of my favorite new bands, these dudes rip! “Mind Crawler” is their newest single and can be found on Uncle Acid’s third album, “Mind Control”. The video for the single was directed by Marc Morris and features tons of cool shit like naked chicks, goat skulls, nuns, bikers, acid tabs, clips from exploitation movies, rolling news and grainy TV clips of Jim Jones and Charles Manson and ritual sex. They pretty much got it all covered in this one!
And Ozzy is even down with em! Yep, Uncle Acid will opening for Black Sabbath on their EU & UK arena tour as main support in November and December 2013. Get ready to snort some ants dudes! Before the Black Sabbath shows, you will be able to catch these fuckers melting faces at this year’s Reading / Leeds festival. Wish I was going…

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats’ are the very antithesis of what it is to be a rock band in the 21st century and therefore quite brilliant.
Formed in Cambridge by media-shy frontman K.R. Stars, in an era of profile building, brand-expanding and over-exposure Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a cult genuine phenomena: taking rock music back to its ritualistic beginnings when pagan heathens would stomp out a dirt-rhythm and howl at the moon. When music was the carnal catalyst for orgiastic midnight reckonings.
Mind Control (2013) looked across the water for inspiration, primarily early Alice Cooper, MC5, Blue Cheer, The Stooges and B-movie biker flicks. It has been critically acclaimed right across the music press board, from Kerrang! to Mojo and NME. Because Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are many things to many people: a blues band, a metal band, a psychedelic band, a doom band. A cult.
The question of who and why and when still go largely unanswered and indeed become irrelevant when Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats plug in and play. Devotees throw themselves down at the feet. Declare allegiance to the twisted spirit sound. Offer themselves and their grandmothers for sacrifice to these devilish overlords. Because resistance, ultimately, is futile.
