First up were the Dead Beat club, fresh from their album launch a few days earlier. With singer Andy Tucker, a Caledonian Lowell George, giving it all from his sandalled feet to his hirsute head they ripped through some gems including Last Man to Fall and Circa 65. With a nice line in sardonic lyrics and some solid playing backing Tucker's emotive vocals they finished all too soon. - website


Edinburgh's Dead Beat Club is one of Bluesbunny's favourite live acts. It was with some trepidation, therefore, that we approached this review of their first album "Random Heartfelt Trinkets". Could they match that live magic in the studio environment?
Lead singer Andy Tucker has one of those great country soul voices and he has undertaken all the song writing duties here as well. He has a neat way with words and paints pictures of ordinary people and their lives. "Broken Heels" takes us down that potholed yellow brick road that passes as the path to love these days. He's a sentimental guy obviously but, even so, he does not shy away from tackling thornier issues such as alcoholism in "My Drunk Girlfriend". The songs might have themes familiar from country music but the settings are definitely the big city. Our favourites were the melancholy yet hypnotic "Man Overboard" and the catchy "Sidetracked".
