Although there are posters up saying DLC will be playing at the Railway, Ipswich, on 17th May, we won't - we were asked to, but had to turn the gig down as Terry's taking a bit of paternity leave..... Normal service will be resumed shortly! Best wishes from the rest of us to him & Lucy.
In the meantime we're finishing off the artwork for the new album & getting it pressed. Release date to be announced soon.....
Pics from Studio 3 gig onsite soon. The venue messed our promoter around & we had to play in the v. small room upstairs, and Barney's kickdrum pedal fell apart so we had to cut our set a bit short - many apologies to the dudes regretting the shortness of our set. (The pedal is probably repairable, but Barney's getting a new one anyway so hopefully that won't happen again).
Just about recovered from brilliant & chaotic short spate of gigs for which Pressure Stuff were unfortunately unable at the last minute to join us. Shades of Reign seriously rocked with great heaviness, stood in for PS at the Ice Bar, & invited DLC to join them for a fourth gig, at the Grapes, Bury St. Eds, as their headlining band had dropped out at the last minute.....
Many cheers to Persevere and As Ruins Fall for stepping in at very short notice, to excellent effect, at the Priors and the Riverside Club respectively.
DLC pics from all 4
gigs are now in the Gallery
Apologies about the previously announced gig which should have been at the Twist, Colchester, on 16th April. This has been cancelled as Syconaut's whole tour has been cancelled. It may apparently be rescheduled June/July time, watch the website for news.....
The new DLC album is recorded, mixed & mastered!
More details soon .....

Fine gig with Plague Ridden at Zest on 16th October. Pics HERE . (The first 2 pics seem to be of Plague Ridden - there are more pics of them elsewhere on the Zest site, too.)
Dammit, we have to pull out of tonight's gig in Bury.
Linden came back from Germany
with a chest infection, hoped it would get better in time but
it's got worse. He went to the doc this morning & it's a severe
infection & he has 3 prescriptions & is no way well
enough to vocalise this evening - he can hardly talk & can't
We are all very pissed off about having to cancel, especially Linden. Very sorry to anyone who was hoping to see us tonight, and to Sammi the promoter at the Con Club.
Ceri's other band VIVIDUS have offered to step into the breach.
Get well soon, Linden!

Photos from Studio 3 gig, which rocked - respect to Left For Dead & Freak Infliction - now in Gallery.....
26th April Terry has recovered now, so the Studio 3 gig is ON!!! DLC may be playing second or third, not sure...
*** DLC HAVE UNFORTUNATELY HAD TO PULL OUT OF THE ZEST GIG TONIGHT AS TERRY IS VERY UNWELL. MANY APOLOGIES TO EVERYONE.
DO GO ALONG ANYWAY & SEE OUR GOOD MATES AS RUINS FALL. Vividus have stepped in at the last minute to fill in for DLC.***
The Riverside Club gig went great, we all had a wicked time, thanks to all who came along, The brilliant Daksinroy were well pleased with the reception you gave them & with the whole atmosphere of the gig. Thanks to A Horse Called War for their SERIOUSLY brutal & crushing set, and also for helping us out with loans of instruments/gear, as Daksinroy couldn't bring their own stuff over on the plane. Thanks also to the noble Street Team for some fine advance publicity work, and for amazing vigilance in spotting and counteracting a piece of misinformation posted on MSN by an unknown individual regarding age limits for the gig, which could potentially have prevented some people from turning up - doesn't seem to have had much effect, if any - the turnout was excellent & included a great number of the younger faction of the DLC crowd, who can't get to a lot of the other gigs because of 18s & over rules.
Pics in the Gallery NOW! (The DLC ones, anyway. We'll put one or two Daksinroy ones on soon - if you want to see some pics of them from the weekend straightaway, click HERE for some really classy ones, and there will probably be some on Daksinroy's own site soon.)
Thanks to the organisers of the Debenham gig and the audience. The hall was weird, like playing in a giant reverb unit. Was good to meet up with Skrewworm again, respect to S.O.O.N. with whom we hope to play a gig before too long, pics now in the Gallery.
Photos from 30th January gig at the Ice Bar now in the Gallery.
NEXT GIG (unless something else turns up first.....)
DLC at DLC! Dead Lane Cross will be playing at the Debenham Leisure & Community Centre on Sunday 12th February, with about 7 other bands (playing various styles of music) including, we think, White Water, Surrender Monkeys, Scene, Phobia & Skrewworm. We also think doors open at 4 p.m. and live music starts at about 5.45 p.m. DLC will be onstage at 9.15 p.m. for 30 minutes. Admission £3.
Many thanks to everyone who came along to the Ice Bar gig on Monday 30th, and to i! PiNATA!. The Moshpit was strange and intriguing. We had a good time! Photos in the Gallery soon.
Photos from 12th Dec. gig - Planet Beet at Pot Black, Bury St. Edmunds - now in the Gallery.
DLC will be playing THE ICE BAR, IPSWICH, again on Monday 30th January, with i! PiNATA! , and possibly another band as well. As usual, no admission charge, and doors open 7 p.m.
Photos from 7th Dec. gig at the Palomino now in the Gallery.
DEADWORM'S HALLOWE'EN PARTY!!!
Inaugural gig of DEADWORM PROMOTIONS
Full details HERE
Was weird playing upstairs at the Ice (or Fire?) Bar, like playing in someone's sitting room in front of the fireplace. The refurbishments going on downstairs look impressive. Thanks to SKINTICKET for excellent support.
25/9/05 STOP PRESS, AGAIN!!! DLC are playing the Ice Bar, Ipswich, Monday 26th September. Only found out yesterday. (We will be playing upstairs this time as downstairs is being refurbished). SKINTICKET are also playing.....
Thanks to My Cold Faith for inviting us to play at the Caribbean Club last Friday (16th), and to Ian & co. for the sound, and the magnificent lights as well - luvly snaps from this gig, now in the Gallery! Also thanks to Garner & the noble Moshers. And to the ones who turned up to see us thinking (correctly) that we were supposed to be onstage at 11 o'clock, only to arrive at the end of our set cos everything was running early - sorry about that.....
The Moonies gig on 2nd September was great, capacity crowd, expert advanced moshpit including some REAL slam dancing, much to Barney's delight. Will be trying to get Hybrideon to play Stow sometime.
Good news! Jason has sorted out the future of PLANET BEET, after being pushed out of the Priors. To keep informed of the new set-up & future events, check out the PLANET BEET website HERE.
OK, normal service is about to be resumed, those of us who went to the Beautiful Days Festival (where Barney was playing with Kip Keino) are now back.
Forthcoming gigs :-
Friday 2nd September - Moonies, Orsett, Essex
Return visit to the club with thousands of people & a gladiatorial moshpit.....
With HYBRIDEON and LED BY VOICES.
Friday 16th September - Caribbean Club, Ipswich
Charity gig organised by MY COLD FAITH who will be headlining.
Friday 4th November - Riverside Club, Stowmarket
BIG HALLOWE'EN-TYPE EXTRAVAGANZA CHARITY GIG PROMOTED JOINTLY BY THE DLC TEAM & SKREWWORM.....!
Will hopefully be adding to this list very soon. Full details as soon as we have them.
forgotten the photos.....
Was great playing the Riverside Club again, thanks to all who came along. Living Proof and Plague Ridden were bloody amazin.
Must just add a sad lament for the passing of two of the rare jewels in the crown of the region's music scene. Rex Records of Ipswich has gone out of business & closed down: thanks for all the years of stocking such a good selection of recordings, and supporting local bands so positively - now there's only Out of Time between us and the soulless megastores. Furthermore, The Priors, Bury St. Eds, is now under new management and they've unceremoniously chucked Jason & Planet Beet out (with no notice - they had to find a different venue to stage their last promotion, and have had to cancel a long list of forthcoming gigs). Jason's done so much for the Bury music scene - DLC is one among many bands to have been priveleged to play at the Priors Thursday night gigs - and this is just seriously out of order. Hope he finds a new venue.
