Dead Vibrations cover the Cure classic at a recent gig in Stockholm and release video taken from the night, perfectly capturing their rendition in all its noisy glory

On May 26th Stockholm promoters Klubb Common People hosted a special The Cure night at Debaser to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary. An ode to the goth greats, they put together a line-up of bands, including Fuzz Club’s Dead Vibrations and NONN, who each had to cover one track from Smith and co’s extensive back-catalogue.

Dead Vibrations took to the stage with their visceral, reverb-clad rendition of ‘Prayers For Rain’, taken from The Cure’s 1989 opus Disintegration. Their take on the track is a crushing slow-burner, delivering their trademark stamp on the Cure classic with a finale that builds into a swirling cacophony of noise and feedback. For those of us that weren’t there to witness it, the band have just revealed a great new live video of them playing the cover, you can check it out below…

Earlier this year we released Dead Vibrations self-titled debut album. The vinyl is long-gone now but you can pick it up on CD below, download it here and stream on all the usual spots.
