Info:

You had to look very hard for a bad review of »This Is Deadheads First Album (It Includes Electric Guitars)«, released on High Roller Records early this year. Metal Hammer, Rock Hard, Rocks, Classic Rock - they all loved the DEADHEADS’ own brand of 'Boogie Punk' (that’s what the band calls it themselves). Guitarist/singer Manne Olander finds a simple explanation for the Deadheads being everybody’s darling at the moment: “People that really enjoy and understand good music always find something they like in different kinds of musical genres. Good music is good music. We just play rock ‘n’ roll.”

That’s the right sentiment, no doubt. Expectations for the second album are quite high. It’s called »Loadead«. Manne Olander explains this nice little play on words: “The story goes that Lou Reed made an album with Velvet Underground (many years ago) called »Loaded«, because it was filled with hits. DEADHEADS made a second album filled with DEADHEADS hits, and to my ears it sounds like it should be named »Loadead«.”

Makes sense, doesn’t it? Manne Olander can be proud of what the DEADHEADS have already achieved in this very short period of time. And with tracks like the fuzzed up "There's A Hole In The Sky", the more laid-back "Empty Howls" (with shades of early Fleetwood Mac) and "Let Loose The Fool", proto punk in the vein of the Dead Boys, Dictators, Johnny Thunders and New York Dolls, »Loadead« has an even broader scope, a wider appeal than the DEADHEADS’ first album (which included electric guitars).

According to Manne Olander the mode of production shaped the way the record turned out quite considerably: “We recorded »Loadead« live in the studio, with all musicians playing their respective instruments together in one room. Nobody was wearing any headphones. That really gave the whole album the right vibe. We work hard on the songwriting to get the songs and the sound we like.”

Let’s see how much longer it will take the press come up with that first single bad review of a DEADHEADS record – judging by the strength of »Loadead« it’s not bound to happen any time soon...
