You're Not The Law... Show # 353

In 2004, a band from Liverpool called The Dead 60s released their first single, the catchy Ska/Punk track entitled “You’re Not The Law”. Backed with the heavy Dub influenced track “Too Much TV”, it was released via the UK indie label Deltasonic Records. The Dead 60s signed to the label shortly after the split of the first incarnation of the band Pinhole, whose music was within the Pop Punk Parthenon. The Dead 60s drew Influences from bands such as The Clash, Gang of Four, The Specials and Dub and Reggae artists such as King Tubby and Lee “Scratch” Perry. “You’re Not The Law” was released to a limited run of 2000 copies and musically it reflected a Specials and Madness like influence. With its siren sounds and ramped organ, some critics have compared it to The Specials “Ghost Town”. You’re Not The Law” was also issued on their first self titled album in 2005, along with a variety of other Punk, Ska, and Reggae fuelled tracks. Following the release of their second album Time To Take Sides, The Dead 60s split up. Members of the band have separated in to two projects some working with Paul McCartney’s son James McCartney and the others are playing with the group Venus Fury.
