Payin' Dues: The Dead Reds
Brighton rabble-rousers lead the rebellion with blues harp and guitars.
“There is a real change of consciousness happening, an awakening of the human spirit. We want to be on the front lines,” says The Dead Reds’ harmonica player Thomas Miles Woodbridge. Their latest EP, The Last Stand, recorded at Quay West Studios in Gosport over a two-day period with producer Alex Long, walks the walk too. Lyrically it’s potent social comment, musically it’s bluesy garage rock. “Music is the world’s expression and the blues are its back-broken tears,” adds Jeremy Green, the group’s vocalist and bassist.
