Who are this mysterious bunch known as Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats? We are not able to shed much light on the identity of this drug-crazed coven of freaks but are addicted to their heavy, melodic, garage horror-rock sounds. Until now, their releases have only been available via mail order and have sold-out instantly, commanding extremely high prices on eBay, such is the demand. Their music brings back the dark spirit of true rock and roll conjured up by this anonymous cult of horror worshipping fiends. Uncle Acid has come to kill!
