Insanity, insanity! Welcome back to DEMENTED ARE GO, “Welcome Back To Insanity Hall”! What is there to say about DEMENTED ARE GO that hasn’t already been said or invented? They are a band that has inflicted their twisted version of rock ‘n’ roll on the world for 3 decades, from the legendary Klub Foot
via clubs, squats and festivals they have built up a loyal following of Psychobillies, Punks, Goths, Geeks and Freaks who just can’t get enough of DAG’s sound. Always a live act not to be missed, their catalogue of releases over the years is proof that the band is always evolving and never restricted to one scene. The reason for the bands longevity and popularity is down to one man, Sparky. A one man riot who sold his soul for Rock ‘n’ Roll! Uncompromising, unpredictable with a voice that sounds like he’s been gargling hot gravel he is instantly recognisable as one of rock ‘n’ rolls true leaders. How he has kept the band going for 30 years is beyond explanation but now in 2012 and after almost 7 years since their last LP “Hellbilly Storm”, DEMENTED ARE GO have finally produced their newest, hardest material to date. “Welcome Back To Insanity Hall” is their latest offering and as with all things Demented the road to “Insanity Hall” was a very, very rocky one indeed. As well as the obligatory line-up problems, the band experienced tragedy on a scale they had never imagined. Having rehearsed the new material over the winter of 2010-11 they entered Studio Von Buktu in Wuppertal (Germany) in the spring to lay down the tracks with much respected engineer/producer Tim Buktu. Tim had remixed the “Hellucifernation” LP back in the late 90’s and was much admired by the band. Having taken the rough tapes to Sweden to mix during the summer on his return to Wuppertal Tim suffered a heart attack and died aged just 53. With the band still in shock and devastated by his loss People Like You Records pushed hard to get the record finished and by the end of the year it was finally ready and another chapter in the DEMENTED ARE GO story is about to begin...
