 Notes & Reviews
 
There's no 'correct' way to respond to The Dead C's music. With a catalogue that oscillates between subverting traditional song structures and stomping out and obliterating the very notion, New Zealand's Michael Morley, Bruce Russell and Robbie Yeats have continually made the most crushing, expansive and intelligent rock noise ever to be heard. The number of their peers who are also fans - Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Comets On Fire, Black Dice - shows the league in which they play. The Dead C have been creating the greatest of squalls for twenty years now, and to mark the anniversary, Ba Da Bing is proud to present this double CD retrospective, with tracks hand-picked by the band members themselves, collecting old and new faves and out-of-print rarities. All this at a price so nice, you'd think you were picking up a ten-song Supertramp greatest hits package.
