History

The Beginnings (1995-1996)

Deadsy started out in 1995, when Elijah Blue Allman(known within the band lineup by his stage name Phillips Exeter Blue I) decided he would get a record deal to support himself. He recorded a handful of demos with Alec Puro and later sent a Juno 106 keyboard to Renn as an invitation to join the band. Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full 1995 Gregorian calendar). ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


The Sire Years (1996-1999)

Deadsy was quickly signed to Sire Records, and they got working on writing new songs. Because they had no bass player at the time Jay Gordon (of Orgy) was asked to play bass for their short self-titled album. After the album was recorded and released for promotion, Craig Riker joined on bass as a full time member, and they were once again writing songs for the upcoming full length Commencement. Only a few songs were written for the new album as the band had planned to re-release most tracks from the self-titled album. A music video for "She Likes Big Words" was made at one of their early shows, also for promotion. With the album in the final stages of development, Sire parted ways with Elektra Records, and the release was pushed back to a later date. Soon after, Deadsy was dropped from the label entirely, ending the life of both the first and would-be second album, Commencement. Some promotional copies of the self-titled album are still floating around. Sire Records Company is an American record label, owned by Warner Music Group and distributed through Warner Bros. ...

The Dreamworks Years (1999-2003)

While in the process of finding a new label, Carlton Bost was added on z-tars and guitar. Ashburn Miller replaced Craig on bass January 2002 after Craig and Deadsy parted ways. Jonathan Davis (of the band Korn) signed Deadsy to the new record label Elementree Records, to release Commencement. Most songs came from the self-titled album, but some were newly written for the album, including "The Key To Gramercy Park", for which a video was made, directed by friend and Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, as well as being the band's second song with Jonathan Davis. Davis invited the band to join the 2001 Family Values Tour before their album had even been released. This move helped build the fan base and helped the band onto the tour soundtrack. After the album's release, the band made a second music video for their cover of Sebadoh's "Brand New Love".

Musical Style and Themes

Elijah describes the band's low and dissonant style as Undercore. Elijah's low baritone singing style, down-tuned guitars, Dr. Nner's synths and Carlton's Z-tar all contribute to the band's sound.

"We wanted to make something that was transcendental, really rule-defying, and very against the grain. And when people listened to it at first, it would just feel very like a sense of foreignness, almost like watching a David Lynch film." - Elijah Blue

The lyrics and imagery of the songs sometimes focus on many subjects in either sexual, religious, magical or popular culture contexts. Occasionally one notices obscure references to Secret Societies, The Urantia Book, Star Wars, and the novel Dune, by Frank Herbert. Some controversy exists over the unreleased song "Itsy Bitsy Titsy Girl", in which Blue makes explicit references to pedophilia. While some claim that the song reflects it's writer's actual feelings, Blue has stated that the song is intended as parody. For other persons named David Lynch, see David Lynch (disambiguation). ...

Glorious Noise - DEADSY POETS SOCIETY The hammer (1483 words)
As part of its decadent schoolboy shtick, Deadsy employs a complicated belief system/manifesto; it involves many enormous words, pseudonyms for each of its five members, and is boring in the manner of an elaborate boarding school prank, so click here if you're interested.
Deadsy sounds like "The Grand Illusion" at 78rpms, Daniel Ash fronting Children of Bodom, or the music that's made when the only guy in the band who has a truck/practice space/rich parents/extra girlfriends/________ happens to play a synthesizer and have an Aleister Crowley fixation.
Deadsy means alot to me and my existence their music is all but intelligent, their musical geniuses.
DEADSY Now on Lineup (1497 words)
The life-breath principle of Deadsy, being the sum of the five parts, is a perfect parallel to the fourth dimension's (time) crucial relationship to the other three, as they are aimless and next to impossible without it...lo and behold, the relentless search of the ultimate.
Woven thick throughout the fabric of this purpose, it is of the most sacred of attributes, being that it is the spirit-provider accompaniment of intensity and extremity on the effervescent quest as pilgrims toward the nether-zone.
The foundations of this mantra lie in the Deadsy theosophy of primacy, which emphasizes that in the early stages of life we hold the answers of the universe and life itself.
