Dead Lucid is an enigma. When guitarist/vocalist Jon Grammer joined bassist Ryan Rhoades for a quick jam session in a Chicago basement, the path was outlined. When drummer Andrew Tschiltsch was added shortly thereafter, the road was paved. Each hailing from different backgrounds and musical influences, their first practice together was like the discovery of steel, a melding of far reaching influences into an alloy of tenacity and finesse, of grace and passion.
Within Dead Lucid’s music, you can feel the dynamics of The Pixies, the brazen nature of The Stooges, the darkened overtones of Joy Division, and the improvisational fervor of Jimi Hendrix.
