Elvis Perkins in Dearland make quite the marching band. Complete with pounding drum and erupting brass, Doomsday is a triumphant racket! That’s one cracking sweater vest Perkins has donned incidentally. Why approximately zilch is known of Elvis et al in the UK is a mystery.

Maybe we should petition the BBC to invite the Rhode Island-formed act onto our British television screens? Any coveted slot on Later Live would surely propel Elvis on upwards to stardom. 

Now that Perkins plays solo, Elvis’ backing band have gone on to form a rather special cult known as Diamond Doves


  1. You should see them perform “Doomsday” in concert – it always gets the crowd going. And yes, that guy really jumps around the stage with that massive drum strapped to his body.
