Never Made It to Space

Dead Larry

A short but powerful EP - Dead Larry's 4th release dives into a new style of high energy rock, funk, and dance that will get you moving as well as humming the tunes for hours!

A powerful blend of high energy rock, dance and funk offers a look into the new generation of musicians and fans. Originally from Iowa City, IA the entire band relocated to Minneapolis, MN in Oct 2011. Dead Larry spreads a positive message to bring out a renewed feeling of passion and hope for anyone who listens. A group of 4 guys in their twenties, Dead Larry loves to party and encourages the crowd to get up and moving. With a vast range of influences it's hard to pin down the sound, but comparisons have been made to Modest Mouse, The Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Dead Larry encourages a community of friends and family (known as "The Family of Funky Friends") that continues to support and grow with Dead Larry throughout their adventures. Touring relentlessly across the country, Dead Larry is a force to be reckoned with.

"An all too short set by psychedelic funk pop band, Dead Larry, from Iowa City, Iowa, was all I needed to realize where the great music truly was. Lead singer/rhythm guitarist Mark McGuiness screamed his lyrics with rock 'n' roll conviction to the raw and dark simplicity of the musical compromise that is the rest of the band. Each member worked their musical niche to create something greater than themselves that is Dead Larry." - Travis Beck (The Daily Nebraskan) on Dead Larry's set during 10,000 Lakes Festival 2008.

"Dead Larry’s music combines psychedelic rock, funk and pop to create a non-stop party." - Tim Gavin (The Daily Iowan)

Mark McGuiness - Vocals, Keys, Synth, Guitar Joe Scarpellino - Bass, Vocals, Guitar, Aux Percussion Ned Barclay - Lead Guitar, Bass Josh "Shua" Felling - Drums
