With only a week to go before the release of Killer Tone Jones debut EP ‘Crush The Bone’ Planet X asked The Dead Beat King about the stories behind the songs on the EP.

PX: what are this collection of songs about?

KTJ: They are all based upon strange real life stories, Sci Fi literature and Movies.Which are general themes of a lot of KTJ music.

PX: Is Crush The Bone based on a film?

KTJ: No, it’s based upon the case of three Cannibals who lived in Florida USA. They feasted on human flesh eating it to prevent diseases like Diabetes and depression.

They were arrested in 2017 and I read about it when I was sitting in a Disney theme park. I imagined how ludicrous it was to claim eating people could cure you. So the song puts the listener at the dinner table, obsessing over human flesh and craving more and more.

PX: It sounds like Some early Cramps tracks, was this intentional?

KTJ: yes, we pushed the type of sounds the cramps used back in the early 1980s, majoring on a hard feedback fuzz guitar and Gretsch twang.

We also used that famous Nik Knox Tom sound but added slap bass courtesy of Serena Sykes.

PX: The Girl from Planet X must be B Movie based?

KTJ: yes, it has those kind of visuals, but it actually based on Edgar Rice Boroughs 1912 classic Princess of Mars, which is the main John Carter trilogy.

We looked to bring in some early B52s influences on the backing Vocals and mixed this with raw guitars and rim shots.

PX: Death Cabaret has a slower pace and sleazier feel to it, was that deliberate?

KTJ: Yes, it is about a dream or more accurately a nightmare where a 1930s Berlin nightclub Cabaret is taken over by the X Factor. The only difference is that instead of a golden buzzer failing contestants are introduced to members of the gestapo.

We got added sleaze in the mix with sax riffs played by Charlotte Beattie. This gave the track the swing it needed and late night/ early morning feel.

PX: what is Live:Die:Repeat about?

KTJ: The song title was taken from a strap line of a Sci Fi film called ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’

The film had its main protagonists living the same day over and over again until they find a way to defeat ruthless alien invaders who have taken over most of Planet Earth.

PX: what does this collection of songs say about future releases?

KTJ: next up we have a surf EP for the summer, but the same production and musicians have been used.

One of the tracks ‘Big Fat Jacks Shack’ has already been played on internet radio several times and we hope that the twang is the thang for this summer!

Pulse-Alternative Magazine Review – The Midniters @Bedlam Breakout #26

THE MIDNITERS have a sound that wouldn’t be out of place in a Tarantino movie. The band don’t waste a second as the frenetic ‘Dead Man’s Curve’ segues effortlessly into the moody ‘Motorbike Mike’. They pepper their set with some choice covers: ‘Personal Jesus’. ‘Please Don’t Touch’ before closing with a raucous rendition of ‘Swords of a Thousand Men’.

Full Review is here……

Planet X have now a range of T-shirts available anywhere for the first time!
