DEALING WITH DAMAGE and a song “about art, music, and memories of the 1980s”

FORMED in 2015 by singer-songwriter/guitarist Ed Wenn and drummer James Sherry, London four-piece melodic, post punk outfit DEALING WITH DAMAGE are back with their first new music since last year’s ‘Use The Daylight’ album – the single, ‘Head Full Of Feedback.’

“It’s a somewhat elaborate ‘thank you’ note to my daughter for chipping away over the past five years at my refusal to listen to Sonic Youth,” explained Wenn. “I had seen them a couple of times in the ‘80s and didn’t like what I saw or heard. But a couple of years ago I investigated the music I heard coming out of her room and discovered that these off-kilter, twisted, intelligent, sometimes downright beautiful pop nuggets were from none other than, Sonic Youth.

“As for the song itself, it was nice to write a story song about something light-hearted for a change. A lot of DWD lyrics walk along the serious side of the street, so it was great fun to write about art, music, and memories of the 1980s when life was full possibilities and we had more than three weeks left to save the planet. We made full use of our new bass player Owen Cox’s playing style to come up with a solid bass and drums platform and built everything up from there.”

‘Head Full Of Feedback’ was recorded at Perry Vale Studios with Pat Collier, mixed at The Mix Dungeon by long-term collaborator Roop Coulson, and mastered by Paul Yeadon.
