Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats try to attract attention through anonymity, because it is not really revealed yet who is behind this band. All we really know is that it must be a British force. A first work appeared on vinyl under the title "Blood Lust". The part has become rare and expensive. Now, after some uploaded youtube songs and self-burned CDs, the second complete album comes out "Mind Control" can fascinate with hypnotic songs on the one hand, but on the other hand suffers from a typical Doom and Garage Rock disease: an undifferentiated and spongy sound, which takes too much power out of the songs. Power and melodies, the tracks basically have plenty of them. This is also due to the claim to sound like the early Alice Cooper Group, which dares to play Black Sabbath songs. Sometimes they get stuck with the Stooges or Hawkwind. Instead of investing in anonymity, Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats should afford a better sound mixer for their next album. That's how great things could happen.
