Needles & Pins


The Death Set "Distressed"

"Distressed" is a great little song. It's the audio equivalent of having needles stuck in your eyes for a minute and a half. Australians Beau Velasco and Johnny Siera make up the Death Set, a band that came together because they both shared the love of flailing around the stage like an apeshit spastic.

The duo recorded their demo 'To' on a pair of jury-rigged harmonica microphones, telephone ear pieces and electrical tape. The recording mashes together bits of drum mcahines, tinny guitars, screeching vocals (yes that is two grown men singing) and samples from anti-drug videos.

So here's to the Death Set! The best duo to come out of Australia since Bon Scott and uh, the bald dude from Midnight Oil?
