Watch: The Dead C exclusive video

June 2013

Watch the only music video ever made for the New Zealand underground DIY rockers.

For the past 25 years Bruce Russell, Michael Morley and Robbie Yeats have developed their DIY strand of warped rock, operating out of Lyttelton and Port Chalmers on New Zealand's South Island.

This video was made by Morgan Oliver in 2003 for "Truth", a track from The Dead C's The Damned (Starlight Furniture, 2003). It has never been shown publicly, broadcast or made available online.

David Keenan follows the trio on a rare European tour, and reports back in The Wire 353. The Dead C's Armed Courage and A Republic Of Sadness are out now on Ba Da Bing.
