A bassist and a drummer who sound like a 5 piece band from 1994.

Biography

The Post Mortems kicked out band members until there were only two people left who could stand one another. Then they took their act on the road.

Flanked by two powerful bass rigs and one overly-complex pedalboard, bassist and vocalist Devin Alexander's manic and dynamic performance style is a perfect match to drummer Al Raymond's 'Animal' inspired rhythm force, somehow encapsulating Keith Moon and John Bonham into one long-haired human drum machine that simply never stops moving.

Inspired by their mutual disdain for modern radio, The Post Mortems craft songs that draw comparisons to The Doors, Failure, The Dresden Dolls, and even Gary Numan. They have also been known to cover The Ace of Spades by Motorhead.
