The Dead Lovers
If the Dead Lovers were a film, they would be a road movie. Wayne Jackson and Lula walk many intricate paths: his first band, the Dostoyevskeys, gained cult status in the Nineties, not least as a support act to Oasis. After moving to Berlin, Wayne Jackson won a Golden Disc for coproducing the first two solo albums by Bela B.
Singer Lula originates from a small village in Bavaria, launched a successful career in the capital as a musician and photographer, and has been co-writing and singing with Bela B. for a while.
The Dead Lovers’ sound? Melodious vocal harmonies over raunchy pounding blues riffs with a touch of folk, rockabilly, Sixties beat and even Seventies glam rock. In short: a fresh-feel retro mix that heads straight for the moving parts. Or deep-down into atmospheric ballads.
