basement tapes session #19
Dead Confederate

October 12, 2009

Earlier this summer the Athens, GA-based band Dead Confederate made a Milwaukee stop in the midst of their national tour in support of their remarkable full-length debut Wrecking Ball. This electrifying Summerfest performance turned out to be one of the unsung highlights of the world’s largest music festival.

As brilliant and mysterious as their latest record may be, it doesn’t hold a candle to the raw, unruly and utterly captivating live versions of these songs. The band - consisting of Hardy Morris, Brantley Senn, Walker Howle, John Watkins and Jason Scarboro - invited us to record a few songs from their set for this session, and while, admittedly, the live mix doesn’t do the songs full justice, the performances of the four numbers we did capture (“It Was A Rose,” and “Heavy Petting,“ both from Wrecking Ball, along with the brand new number “Split The Seams” and a jaw-dropping version of Officer May’s “Smoking in A Minor”) are a perfect testament to the unbridled energy, power and dark Southern mysticism that this band is capable of conjuring up when they hit the stage.

These guys are still out tearing up the road - currently supporting the Meat Puppets and then later in October with A Place To Bury Strangers for two guaranteed killer double-bills. Let these four free downloads of their incendiary Summerfest show serve as reminder to get out and see them firsthand when they swing through town this fall.
