The Not So Short Story Of How Labelled Dead Came To Be.

I am Adam, the frontman for the band in question.  I will be narrating the journey which lead to the formation of Labelled Dead.

It all started back in 2014 when we when we all met on a music course at Stourbridge college.

The house was terrible, full of mold and just a mess but we had fun.


Jon sawed a sofa.

We played some music.


We messed about...


...A lot


I got sick of lugging gear around in a trolly so bought another inconveniently small car.


We played some shows.


We went to some shows.


I had some personal issues and I felt living in a van would help.

So I did that.


This would later become the first practical mode of transport for the band.


Jon moved back to the Black Country and had a go at a solo career playing acoustic Oasis songs in pubs. (He actually joined Nirvana UK and played some epic gigs.)


Even though Becky was not playing bass for us at this time we would all still hang out.
