Of all the bands I’ve come across recently in the various DIY scenes across the country, Tyrannosaurus Dead are that one band I can’t understand why they’re not huge. Their music is refreshingly honest and life affirming, and Flying Ant Day is their strongest record yet. The heavy US influence is offset by the very British and unique vocals of Billy Lowe and Eleanor Rudge, one is rough and ready, the other enchanting. This duality sums up the whole sound: scuzzy noise with moments of beauty, moments where you want to jump and shout, others created for quite moments of contemplation. The record comes close to flawless, maybe T-Dead are good where they are, our nation’s best kept secret.
