‚the commentary of the worst reality show you can imagine…Britain‘ Following the recent self-titled mini album, Dead Sheeran returns with his full debut album ‚A National Disgace‘. Once again Dead looks at the way the country continues to spiral downwards into oblivion in his usual satirical and tourette-like way. Pianos and strings play over harsh basslines and hip hop beats, and punk rock fuses with video game soundtracks, while the lyrics paint a dark picture of the situation we find ourselves in. The album was started in the last throes of Lockdown 1, with songs such ‚Can Things Get Any Worse?‘ ‚The Problem With This Country‘ and the government’s failed attempts at getting UK furloughed workers to get out and harvest fruit in ‚Pick For Britain‘ narrating the crazy days of Summer 2020. As lockdown eased, and society started to erupt, tunes such as ‚Kicking Off In The Streets, and ‚Keep Your Distance‘ started to come into play. Self awareness, social media abuse, litter louts and right wing mates all come under fire over the duration of this 11 track album, with the moods changing as regular as the F-bomb gets dropped. Essential listening for these strange times. Dead Sheeran aka Paul Catten writes, produces, mixes and plays all instruments on this. From programming beats, fiddling with synths to recording himself playing Pac-man, Dead pushes further musically than the previous release. The influences of the Sleafords, The Fall, The Streets and the many punk outfits that influence him still rumble in the distance, but make no mistake, this is a Dead Sheeran record. He has carved out his own sound and vibe on ‚A National Disgrace‘, and as Dead will tell you, this is only the beginning…
