Dead Bob

Dead Bob


DEAD BOB is the solo incarnation of John Wright, drummer of long time and apparently legendary, but now retired band NoMeansNo

“Life Like”, a NoMeansNo cover actually, is the title track of the first album John has released on his own. Recorded and Produced by John in the wilds of British Columbia, this album’s material spans several decades and there is lots more in the archives.

Though primarily written and performed by John he can’t take all the credit having engaged the help of several friends to get this thing done. Byron Slack (Invasives), Kristy Lee Audette (Rong), Ford Pier (Ford Pier and the Vengeance Trio, DOA, Roots Round up, Junior Gone Wild, Rheostatics), Selina Martin, his son Aidan Wright, as well as two old collabs with brother Rob (NoMeansNo) in the writer’s chair.

As might be expected the songs roll out cohesively but defy the cookie cutter pigeon holes, hence “Genre” is a tough one to convey but one thing that is not unclear is it is not to be listened to quietly!

Play loud and enjoy!

Then come see Dead Bob all Live Like!

John has teamed with Ford, Byron, Kristy and good friend Colin MacRae (Pigment Vehicle) on Electric Bass Guitar.

We aim to make sure you hear it all good and loud!
