"Dead Man and Redneck Girlfriend at Slim's Last Chance 3-16-12"

They absolutely rocked; alternating with hard blues and soaring vocals. At times Uncle Hickory (I think his real name is Michael) sounded like the lead singer of a grunge band, the others like Steve Earle. Great voice and killer delivery. One of those voices that can get right up to screaming without crossing the line and still sound good. He also played a guitar in every blues, rock and punk style you can name without missing a lick. He sounded like 2 guys, sometimes playing with bottleneck in a slide fashion, some times picking and strumming. Great stuff and the audience loved.

"Rockabilly Pedigree and Stellar Seattle Bands Make for a Fun Night At Seattle’s El Corazon, By Holly Homan"

Dead man is only a two-piece, but left me scratching my head, wondering how this singer/guitarist and drummer can produce such a full sound. Dead Man consists of Uncle Hickory, a gray-bearded dude with a brimmed hat and tattoos up his arms and who sings like he’s gargling gravel and trying to cough it up at the same time. His rich and gravely voice is perfect for the straight up R&B these two produced. Between Uncle Hickory’s twangy guitar strumming and the solid drumming of Brian Nelson, I felt like I was watching them in a smoke filled, stifling hot club in the swamps of Louisiana. The Dead Man’s sound was so authentic the chill of a damp Seattle night became an oppressively muggy night somewhere in the deep south. - East Portland Blog


Dead Man-Filthy Blues 2012



Emerging from the dank clubs and bars of Seattle, Dead Man, lit the fuse on their filthy blues explosion with an undeniable fervor. The Duo, merges Lucas’ muddy originals with road seasoned chord progression and the paintshakin’ pounding of Nelsons drums. This blues punk machine gets the ground moving and the crowd to beg, scream and shout. Lucas’ heavy slide guitar is not known for its gracefulness as it rips down to your very soul. His growling vocals tell the tales of a life lived all wrong. Sharing stages with the likes of Dave Gonzolez and the Stone River Boys, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Slim Jim Phantom, Dick Dale, and the legendary Sonics! This duo can hold their own with any band. Leaving one to question how does all that sound come out of just two guys!
