My Dad Is Dead


My Dad Is Dead Peace, Love & Murder LP

Not exactly a group, but the second LP by Mark Edwards of Pollution Control mag, and this release has the uncanny ability to sound like a real band—in fact, sounds a lot like some real cool outtakes of 100 FLOWERS with its finely directed and passionate post-punk sounds.

My Dad Is Dead …And He’s Not Going to Take It Anymore LP

Basically this is a one man show by a guy named Mark Edwards who had drummed with a number of Cleveland punk and garage bands. Normally I tend to hate these one-man solo albums but this is a kicker. If you’ve ever heard bootlegs of very early JOY DIVISION before they discovered the recording studio, then you have an idea of what this sounds like. Rough, murky guitar sounds with great shitty production.
