The Vaynes were gobbed out onto the streets of rock'n'roll city (a.k.a. Leeds 6) sometime around the end of 1984, being baptized
The Dead Vaynes by self styled Messiah, vocalist,songwriter, hellraiser, leader-of-the-pack (rock'n'roll adjectives ad nauseam) Stevie
Vayne. The fledgling Vaynes line-up had more changes than a baby's nappy and by the timethe shit hit the fan and The Vaynes were
finally to be immortalised on vinyl, nobody could guarantee their presence.
The L.P. "G.T.F." was recorded in June 1985 with the only-just-recruited Mick Vayne on lead guitar. Drummer Haggis both bashed and
rolled the skins, with Sir Harry on bass... (you can read the following on the artwork file)
The Vaynes made exceedingly good rock'n'roll records"
""SHE BIT my arms, she blew my brains..."
Iggy meets Slaughter And The Dogs, and the Vaynes ram them into the crusher and feed off the dripping juices. Hailing from Leeds, which is possibly taking over from Liverpool
in the productivity stakes, Dead Vaynes churn out seedy wasted boogie, succeeding because of a certain belief in themselves and an essential "couldn't care attitude" (essential because
it is difficult to take them 100 % seriously).
I am told they are quite an experience live and and this I can well believe, as the Vaynes deal in the sort of cruel adrenalin-injection rock that can be so invigorating on stage
and yet a dead loss on vinyl, although this disc does have it's merits.
Motor City Babies, living for the instant, Dead Vaynes are probaly already legends in their own lunchtimes." N. Perry/Sounds (May 1986)
