Somewhere out there, in the multiverse of infinite possibilities, exists a world where the Beatles
recorded "Helter Skelter," decided to stop cutting their hair, and never looked back.
While that world might only be a dream, the next best thing comes by way of Cambridge, England's Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, a band whose psychedelic proto-metal excursions evoke the melody of a Fab Four fronted by Charles Manson
, along with the creeping menace of early Black Sabbath
. The band made their debut in 2010 with Vol. 1, followed shortly afterward by 2012's Blood Lust. A third outing, Mind Control, appeared in 2013 on Metal Blade
. They left the label and signed with Rise Above Records
for their third album, 2015's The Night Creeper, which landed on various charts. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
