DEAD LANE CROSS OLD NEWS PAGE 2

Briefly: DLC came SECOND in the Battle of the Bands at the Ice Bar! And someone said it was a CLOSE second. We were just playing it as a gig, didn't think the old hardcore metal would get anywhere in a mixed-style competition. Bloody hell, crate of cheap champagne as well...! Most pleasing.

Respect to the other bands: Meat City, who won; The Wah, whom Barney in particular liked a lot, who came third; Dyslexic 7, Full Collapse, and One:Day:Life. Many thanks to soundman James and stage manager Ian. Also thanks to the Celebrity Moshpit.
Photos in the Gallery now.

THIS MUST BE THE SHORTEST NOTICE YET.....
DLC are playing at the All-Dayer at the Ice Bar, Ipswich, on Bank Holiday Monday 30th May! This is a Battle of the Bands thing. DLC are due to play at 5 p.m.
(Not sure which other bands are playing - for details of the Certain Amount of Confusion surrounding this event, check out a couple of past threads on the
Ipswich Gigs Forum ).
Anyway, we're definitely playing - despite our reservations on the subject of music as competition, a large contingent of noble DLC Followers supporting us would be very welcome.....
Saturday 30th April was Barney & Jane's Wedding Day.


A fine array of ties & smartness.....


.....and later, a celebratory mosh.


Thanks to Ozzie & Stuart for inviting us onto their wireless programme the other night - a very exhilarating experience - Ceri broke a string during Fakes & Lies, which consequently sounded somewhat different from usual in its later stages.....
If the next few weeks look a bit lacking in DLC gigs, that's because Barney will be touring Germany with Kip Keino in a few days' time, and then he & Jane are getting married. After that, normal service will be resumed with a vengeance (and hopefully a Riverside Club gig!.....).

Meanwhile, work goes on towards getting the new E.P. ready for distribution.....
DON'T FORGET DLC LIVE ON IPSWICH COMMUNITY RADIO AT 10 p.m. THIS THURSDAY, 31st MARCH.

DLC will be playing another gig at the excellent Priors, Bury St. Edmunds, on Thursday 7th July, with NITCH and LIVING PROOF.
BARNEY'S TOE IS BETTER NOW.


Assuming all goes to plan, DLC will be playing live, chatting, & playing recordings of music they like & which has influenced them, on Ipswich Community Radio at 10 p.m. on Thursday 31st March. As far as we know, ICR will still be broadcasting only over the Net (find it via www.icrfm.co.uk) - they've applied for the temporary broadcasting licence they're granted every so often, but we don't know when they'll get it.


BARNEY HAS BROKEN HIS TOE.....


Thanks to the Crowd who defied the snow on 21st Feb & came along to the gig at the Ice Bar - the Manager says he'll be asking us back for another gig in the Summer...
Pics onsite soon.

We like it...! Many thanks to the incomparable
JIM BISCUITS !


DLC have finished recording 5 new tracks, which are now being mixed & mastered.

A full-length MP3 of Sorrow from the Falling Like a Bleeding Sky album can now be downloaded from the BURBS website www.burbs.co.uk.



2 p.m. OK, looks like Ray has managed to book the Village Hall at STANTON as replacement venue for the gig this Saturday. Other details as before. It's in the Ixworth area, not too far from Hessett actually but on the other side of the A14.

Very sorry, folks, the gig on the 18th December is cancelled. Relapse cleverly omitted to book the hall before confirming & publicising the event. We'd like to make it clear that neither the DLC team nor Skinticket were responsible for this, as we weren't organising this gig. As we post this on the site the time is 01.40 on Thursday morning and we've only just found out about the cancellation - from the Message Board!

Again, many apologies - we were looking forward to it as well.....

This is terrible, the sudden death of another inspirational figure on the music scene. We owe so much to Dimebag Darrell for his amazing guitar playing and his great music, especially with Pantera. Barney in particular has been very influenced by this music, during the time he spent as a member of Vessel.
R.I.P Dimebag. Thanks, man, so very much - we'll still be listening to the music.....
