DEAF POET SOCIETY
Sunday the Woolly Mammoth will be alive once again to the sounds of live music. Six bands will be taking to the stage from 3pm through till 8pm. Joining us on the line up are North Brisbane band Deaf Poets Society. I caught up with Tom Mc Ranclaud vocalist and the man behind Deaf Poet Society. Tom has been tearing it up on the scene with Passion Cactus for three years but now you can see them rocking as their alter punk ego Deaf Poet Society as well . Keen to see what the future holds for these guys who have bought out a banger of a first single and video to accompany it. Tom and the band are so passionate about this project they would quit their jobs to take this on the road.
They want to make records that sound good and play music that they like to listen to and hope others do as well. They are influenced and also love to listen to “For lovers of Pixies, Nirvana, Sunny Day Real Estate and anything else that is fucking loud sad and catchy as hell” “We Just wanna draw people in with similar influence and music taste to us and connect with those people and play honest music.”
Their first single “Bitter Not Better” although dark there is sarcasm and humour. The track is catchy as hell and not your typical Break up song.
“The video was a lot of fun to do for “Bitter Not Better” I had 16 cents to my name, we bought a case of beer and got everyone to make out on camera while I stared down the lens alone with all these romantic moments happening around me.”
“2020 has been the worst year ever and we are just happy to be able to play and it’s an honour to play the Woolly Mammoth Stage.”
Tom spoke of the scene and how he would love for more people to just get out and support live music including other bands getting out and also connecting and working together to build a solid scene.
“Its not about the money but we all would love nothing more than to be able to make enough to be able to keep playing music and touring.” Get out on Sunday and catch Deaf Poets Society live at the Woolly.
New music is on the way so get ready to be hit by some more great music from the guys soon.
