On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
Dead Wolves have a story or two to tell, coming from his previous band (ESCAPE FROM LINCOLN) Bones jump from behind the drums and called on his right hand man and longtime friend Pat Shipp (DONT TEMPT THIEVES) to start up something and just get right down to it. Knowing right where to look next they grabbed Heath Shipp (TO MANY TO LIST and no thats not the band name) not only the best bass player from the Brisbane Bayside but also Pat's own brother, they now had it all but the back beat. Like all things that suddenly come to life they was a waiting period and with no drummer a rock and roll band can not exist but as fate would have it a series of events including a house party, possibly things of a psychedelic natural and an open heart they found the last part. Callum Deed is his name and hitting things with two pieces of wood is defiantly his game.
Wasting no time the band got together there songs recorded an EP and started playing Gigs all within 3 Months. So since December the bands has played show and handed out copies of there EP all the while writing more songs and recording a brand spanking new release (Out start of April 2012)
Dead Wolves is a band that knows nothing is around for very long and if it is its rare that its ever exciting so they are hell bent to do it all and do it all now. If you get a chance catch a show because this band has a DEATH WISH and doesn't care if you attend the funeral.
