Youth is wasted on the young, so they say. Not in the case of Deadbeat Echoes. Musically and geographically from mid way between Manchester and Liverpool, playing pop music for people from the darker side of town.
"Deadbeat Echoes are the best young band in the UK" - John Robb
"Frighteningly exciting, utterly inspirational, they may just be the best guitar band in the North-West at the moment." - manchestermusic.co.uk
"Deadbeat Echoes most startling strength is that they sound utterly in control of their material, no matter which direction they choose to pull it in from." David Edwards (MM/DiS)
"They are taking the weird and wonderful and translating it back into a language that the mass audience will understand. It’s a great trick and another hallmark of great NW music, the trick of making high art for the people, taking the esoteric and putting it onto the terraces and into the council estates." - louderthanwar.com
"Get Yer Blues On has the clunky sound of 'Black Rebel Motorcycle Club', and the guitar ringing in the chorus does raise the hair up on the back of your neck. The track, if anything proves that melody isn’t the only way to get your point across. Early Primal Scream knew the same secret." - coolmanchester.com
"New lads Deadbeat Echoes, cut through Father Time's thick malaise with a loud, twisted and borderline-chaotic slab of guitar pop" www.musicomh.com
"Tonight, KOKO played host to a line up which included an era defining band and support from a band, who could provide the standard against which, future generations will be measured." www.thisfeeling.co.uk/magazine
