Entry Requirements: 16+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)
Dead! are a band of four fiercely creative people in their late teens and early 20s. These ambitious, imaginative young men found themselves in a cultural cul-de-sac as they watched their music scene disappear around them on their native Isle Of Wight a few years ago and decided to do something about it. The quartet aren't the sort of people who wait for opportunities: they go out and hunt them down. With a fire in their belly, they formed a band, toured Europe off their own back, moved into a house in London together, released their own music, made their own videos and now have a fervent fan-club who follow their every move. They are one of the UK's most exciting new rock'n'roll bands, armed with a stack of raucous, punky anthems and a gung-ho, do-or-die attitude. This was the way it had to be. There are no half measures for Dead!.
