Behind The Veil: ‘A Fate Worse Than Live’ Tour Diary – Day IV

7.30…beep…get up…shower…in the dark. Ironic really, we’re a funeral band and we didn’t have a candle between us! Really must get that light fixed. Monday morning, the middle of the working week for us. We got to the train station and began the beautiful trek to Edinburgh. The wear and tear was starting to show by now and we were good for nothing on the train, just sat half asleep admiring the scenery, glad of the warm carriage. I’d never been to Edinburgh before but was looking forward to it and it was so much more than I’d hoped. All … Continue reading

Behind The Veil: ‘A Fate Worse Than Live’ Tour Diary – Day III

7.30…beep beep  beep…get up get up get up,  shower, emerge slowly and cautiously into the land of the living – not easy for an old corpse like me.

After celebrating my birthday (I’m now too old to remember my age) with my fellow Cadavers, we set about preparing for our gig in Manchester. Myself and Boom had not met The Deadly Romantics (our touring partners) before so we approached with caution, not … Continue reading

Live Review: Pivo Pivo, Glasgow 13th November 2013

By the time the headline act took to the stage its safe to say that the crypt door had been well and truly kicked open and with that the undead seized their opportunity to make our world their stage. So with the defibrillator powered up and ready to go all that was left to be done was spark some life into the creature… Mr Crowe, Boom Chic Chic, Dirge and Draggle or as they are collectively known… The Cadaver Club! Power Pop, Pop Punk whatever neat little label you chose to pin on this amalgamation doesn’t do justice to the … Continue reading

Cadaver Club talk Hallowe’en with Über Röck

Cadaver Club features Dirge and Draggle, the brothers Filth, on guitar and drums respectively, the exotic Boom Chic Chic on bass and the mysterious Mr. Crowe on vocals. Their debut album, ‘A Fate Worse Than Life’, is released on October 31st so the band members were perfect victims for Uber Rock’s 13 Days of Halloween….. 1.) What are your most vivid childhood memories of Halloween? For many people Christmas is the big family holiday, but for me Hallowe’en was always the highlight of the year. It was the one night I felt I could be myself unapologetically. Early memories are … Continue reading
