Never miss another 'Mark Holub' show
Formed in 2006 and played their first show in February 2007. Alex Ward initially came to attention in free improvisation circles for his work as a clarinettist with the likes of Derek Bailey and Eugene Chadbourne, while his interests in rock music and composition first became apparent with the band Camp Blackfoot.
His guitar playing has been featured with improv power-trio N.E.W. (with Steve Noble and John Edwards), and in recent live collaborations with such avant-rock luminaries as Tatsuya Yoshida, Shoji Hano and Weasel Walter.
Dead Days Beyond Help teams Alex with virtuosic drummer Jem Doulton (who also has more than a small hand in the work of disturbing pop visionary Mr. Ron Jetson) for an unrestricted exploration of the possibilities of the guitar/drums duo. Their debut album "Access Denied!" (Copepod, 2009) featured a set of 9 compositions by Ward, ranging from intricate and breakneck instrumentals to structurally-straightforward but emotionally scouring song material; while a subsequent limited edition release "The Verbing" (Copepod, 2011) showcased the duo's totally improvised work.
Since then, a deluge of new material written jointly by Ward and Doulton has taken DDBH's music far further into uncharted waters, simultaneously more epic and more mind-scramblingly dense.
