19/11/2016 Desert Mountain Tribe live at The Wightman, Shrewsbury

Left For Dead have teamed up with AcemanSpaceman to bring London based psych rockers Desert Mountain Tribe to Shrewsbury on Saturday 19th November.  DMT weld Black Angels tripped-out Velvet Underground psych to the street leather rock chassis of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and carve out heavy sheets of guitar akin to 'Storm In Heaven' era Verve; spiralling melodic riffs and tight as f*ck bottom end. Support comes from Wrexham's The Revolutionary Spirit- bluesed and bruised psychonauts whose new album is being produced by The Verve's Simon Jones.

Crap custard, hairy mutha's and Tomorrow's Dream: The 2015 review according to Left For Dead

Meanwhile, Viet Cong released their stunning debut album (which would...
