Given that this year's Family Values Tour offers a typically execrable smattering of pedestrian cheese-metal (Staind? Who asked for that nonsense?) you'd be within your rights to ignore it, but the first band on the stage deserves consideration. Deadsy, captained by Elijah Blue Allman, son of Cher and Mr. Whipping Post, offers the sort of sinister spin on pop that Gary Numan and John Foxx championed in the 1980s. In fact, with its synth-heavy rumble and judicious use of angry guitar, Deadsy's a fine approximation of Numan's old Tubeway Army. The band's self-titled debut surfaced in 1996; when a reworked version of it (Commencement) followed in 1999 it, too, produced nary a ripple -- possibly because Orgy had already beaten Deadsy to the electro-nostalgia punch with a revamped New Order song.
