Utech family benefit compilation album

Keith Utech is a great guy. He’s super friendly, down to earth and runs Utech Records for over 10 years, thereby offering a platform to experimental bands from all over the world.

Some of you might know that his wife, Kim Utech, lost her battle against cancer on July 1st 2015, less than 3 weeks after we last saw her. We had the privilege to meet Kim twice and were deeply touched by her kindness and positivity.

Shortly after Kim’s passing, artists, musicians, music critics, and other friends and supporters of Keith Utech and Utech Records felt the need to combine their efforts to create something to benefit Keith and his children. This resulted in the 41 track, 4 1/2 hour long compilation And Suddenly Everything, Absolutely Everything, Was There. The compilation features mostly exclusive, live, and unreleased tracks. We’ve recorded the exclusive track Ouroboros for this amazing compilation.

100% of the proceeds (after Bandcamp and PayPal take their cuts) will be donated to the Utech Family Fund to assist Keith with living expenses while he takes time off to be with their children and to help with the expenses incurred while Kim was receiving treatment.

Utech LogoFirst of all: thanks to Keith for having us at Utech Records Music Festival III. It was great to hang out with all the great bands and to perform together with Sten Ove Toft! Talking about Sten Ove Toft, we made an exclusive track for Utech Records that was released on a very limited one-sided 7″ lathe cut to celebrate 10 years of Utech Records. The track is called Hollow and can be streamed / downloaded here or by clicking play below

We took an extremely limited number of 7″es with us on the plane, so if you want to buy a copy from us: act fast!

The other gig we did at Elastic Arts in Chicago was also fantastic. Check out the great review of the event right here.

The Endless Voids release is a bit more problematic. Before our trip to the States we received both 2CD and 2LP versions, however the 2LP version was fucked up at the plant. We’re resolving the issue at this very moment and will keep you updated on the status of the 2LP. The 2CD version looks and sounds great and can be ordered through our Bandcamp.

Last but not least, we’re planning a ton of shows for the fall. Keep an eye out for upcoming shows in your area.

Endless Voids is delayed a bit

DNEV-1500pxHey!

Some tough news on the Endless Voids release: we hit a slight delay!

Reason for this delay is basically what you can call the vinyl apocalypse, which is induced by Dire Straits reissues and Record Store Day. Read more about it here.

We will extend the pre-order (and accompanying lower pricing) until June 6th. New release date is June 6th, so the wait is almost over!

Thanks for your patience,
Dead Neanderthals

The New Wave Of Dutch Heavy Jazz is here!

CD in handOkay guys, the totally old-school New Wave Of Dutch Heavy Jazz ‘scene compilation’ is out now.

4 Bands (ALBATRE / Cactus Truck / Donné Et Desirée / Dead Neanderthals) on 1 CD for a rediculously low price.

This CD not only gives a nice (yet incomplete) overview of the Dutch scene, it also shows what you can do when you work together with friends. Super cool on many levels!

Stream it below or buy it on our bandcamp.

Endless Voids pre-order

During last year’s Incubate Festival, we got the oppertunity to perform a very special show at Theaters Tilburg. For this show, entitled ‘Endless Voids’, six renowned artists joined us on stage to form this very special (and probably once in a lifetime) line-up:

Thomas Ekelund (Trepaneringsritualen)
Peter Johan Nÿland (Distel)
Dirk Serries (vidnaObmana)
Steven Vinkenoog (Donné Et Desirée)
Colin Webster (Sex Swing and Dead Neanderthals collaborator!)
Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek and DNMF of course!)
Otto Kokke (Dead Neanderthals)
René Aquarius (Dead Neanderthals)

The entire 80-minute performance was recorded and will be released by Spanish-based label Alone Records on both 2xLP and 2xCD. The album will be out on May 25th but can be fully streamed and pre-ordered here or by clicking on the player below.
