The best kept secret in music


"Down Town Records Show"

The Dead Pinups struck the perfect balance between east coast and west coast punk rock, heavily influenced by the Misfits but more polished like Social Distortion. They played something ridiculous like 30 songs in an hour. They played an amazing cover of "Holiday In Cambodia" by the almighty DK. Everyone but the drummer took a turn at the vocals throughout the night. Much of their original material is very tongue-in-cheek with song titles like "Life Goes On Unless Your Retarded" and "Breakfast Of Champions" (a song about eating babies). A very solid punk band from the Indy area that broke many of punks sterotypes in terms of their look and sound. - Down Town Records

Feeling a bit camera shy


The Dead Pinups were brought together by one common thread, the love of PUNK!!! Not what punk has become, but what it use to be and how it made us feel. We were each tired of playing in bands where we were just in them to be playing in a band. Our creative influences not being drawn to their full potential. We got together through a message board and decided to meet up one night for a practice. After playing for about 40 minutes I suggested we go up and play a local open mic. We played 3 covers we knew and had been working on together that evening. After playing we had 3 shows lined up for the up coming weeks and the rest is history. The Dead Pinups have been pushing full throttle ever since. Creating a new wave of Punk based on such influences as The Misfits, Samhein, Guttermouth, The Dead Kennedy's, The Dead Milkmen, Nirvana, and Rancid the list just keeps going. Whether its the fake blood or the shredding guitar solos not common in punk music this is what sets us a part and keeps you coming back for more!
