From Perth, Western Australia, The Silent Deeds formed in 2014.
Singer and rhythm guitarist Corey Ranger and drummer Tom Filter were in a Foo Fighters tribute band called “White Limo”.
When this project ended, they went looking for musicians to form an original band. Melodic lead guitarist Clayton Brown joined soon after, along with bassist Adam Quigley.
I’ve seen in various press releases their sound described as “Tom Petty meets Foo Fighters meets U2 meets Pearl Jam meets Hoodoo Gurus.” I wouldn’t disagree with that. I would add Choirboys, AC/DC, The Screaming Jets and Jimmy Barnes to that.
Their latest EP “Down With Me” came out in 2020. It features two previously released singles “The Race” and “Come Alive” with two new tracks “Down With Me” and “Ghosts”.
The band has said it is their “heaviest, catchiest and funkiest set of songs”. And I wouldn’t disagree with that as well.
If AC/DC and U2 had a love child, this would be it.
You can feel the funk from the bass but it’s a hard rock song to me, more Stones like.
The riff is a common one but I still like it.
Foo Fighters comes to mind but so many hard rock and classic rock artists had these kind of riffs.
Down With Me
More funky bass lines and a heavy Fuel modern rock feel.
They have me interested. Let’s see what comes next.
When I was in bands, we decided to do three sets. The first set would be 10 originals. The second set would cover 70s and 80s songs. The third set would cover 90s and above. It was hard work but also rewarding and it paid good. Plus we were the only band on that night.
I’ve read that “The Silent Deeds” also do three hour gigs involving covers and originals.
