"You Were Young" by The Dead Ships

Television production houses never truly close. Open throughout the night with graveyard shifts, they can be dark lonely places. Maybe that’s why coworkers Devlin McCluskey and Christopher Spindelilus bonded during a twilight smoke break and decided to start a band called The Dead Ships. The result of their guitar (McCluskey) and drums (Spindelilus) only combo is a raw barrage of garage rock splattered with sweaty blues roots and rugged pop melodies. Their debut LP entitled Electric Ahab was recorded live with only two takes to two-inch tapes (“100% analogue”) by Donny Newenhouse (Film School) at Center of the Mile in San Francisco; and the natural energy is evident. Check out the lively track “You Were Young”:

The Dead Ships hosted the September residency at The Central, but they return this Tuesday to support The Ross Sea Party along with The Mid Cities and Opus Orange.
