Album Of The Day-Winnebago Deal-"Dead Gone" (2004)

The Album Of The Day is "Dead Gone" by Winnebago Deal.


If you're longing for the Sub Pop sound, before the mainstream neutered and pillaged the Seattle scene, then Winnebago Deal's debut full-length, Dead Gone, is definitely for you. Don't get them wrong though -- Winnebago Deal is nothing like all the third (now fourth?) generation Pearl Jam/Nirvana rip-offs that continue to spread like a virus. While they did absorb Sub Pop's raw sound (which is obviously attributed to their choice of producer, Jack Endino, who produced Nirvana's debut, Bleach) and style (the out-of-focus live photos inside the CD booklet) the duo specializes in hard-hitting, sometimes abrasive, hard rock. And while there are only two bandmembers, you'd never know it, as they out-muscle the majority of the rock bands you see nowadays on MTV. Keep all combustible materials away from your speakers while blasting such standouts as "The Line-Up," "Cobra," and "N.W.O." There may not be a lot of variation here -- riffs n' bashing are aplenty -- but there's a realness and rawness here that is far too often frowned upon in this Pro-Tools obsessed world. (Greg Prato, All Music Guide)
