The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster - Horse Of The Dog
Loud, loud, loud! We're so delighted to add the gothic, psychobilly sounds of Eighties Matchbox to the Dinked Archives!
One of the band’s biggest fans is the film director Edgar Wright, who directed the music video for their song ‘Psychosis Safari’ as he was working on his own cult classic, ‘Shaun of the Dead’. The film even featured ‘Mister Mental’ (from ‘The Royal Society’) on its soundtrack. Still a fan to this day, Wright has penned the accompanying liner notes that will feature in all physical versions of the reissue. He writes:
“The aural assault of ‘Celebrate Your Mother’, ‘Chicken’, ‘Giant Bones’, ‘Fishfingers’ and, frankly, the whole fucking album, represents the uniquely combustive togetherness of this band who in 2002 existed paradoxically both within and outside the music scene of the day… Behold an album too fast to live, but too young to ever die. The finest 25 minutes of freak energy one can handle.”
Formed in Brighton on January 1st 2000, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster went on to release one final record, 2010’s ‘Blood & Fire’, before disbanding. They experienced a rediscovery in 2012 when ‘Chicken’ featured in a Nike campaign, which led to the band reuniting for sold-out shows in London, Brighton and Manchester.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
