Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats' third album Mind Control was originally released in 2013 and looked further afield than Volume 1 and Blood Lust, to the post-Charles Manson US for inspiration. Think murders at Altamont, Jim Jones dosing the Kool-Aid. Think MC5 and Blue Cheer, Blue Oyster Cult and B-movie biker movies. Think war, Watergate, pornography, serial killers dressed as Ronald McDonald, suicidal TV evangelists and self-elected messiahs at every turn. Mind Control was the soundtrack to a culture of consumption hurtling headfirst into a neon-hued moral abyss.
With Mind Control Uncle Acid prove beyond doubt that they are more than worthy of the cult-status already achieved from previous output. Mind Control is a simply stunning piece of work in an era where bandwagon jumping and fake nonsense is the general order of the day. This is genuinely out-there hard rock played from the heart. A masterwork not to be missed!
