Amsterdam were formed on Merseyside in 1999 and promptly stayed there - mainly because they didn't really have any band members or any songs - but Ian Prowse had to tell his friends in the pub he had a new band going. A few gigs were played with various band line-ups and to stunning indifference, but all this changed in 2000 when the arrival of Ian's best-ever songs rescued him from the pub and they immediately won an NME competition to find the best-unsigned band of 2000. Next up the band were one of the winners at the prestigious music biz event In the City.

I was born in Liverpool, Merseyside, in the year of "Beatlemania" and first took an interest in music when my dad bought me my first two albums, "The Beatles 66-70" and "Ziggy Stardust". I spent many hours in the front room of my house playing "air guitar" and could not decide whether I wanted to be George Harrison or Mick Ronson, a tough choice for a 10 year old, I think you will agree. At the age of eleven I borrowed a beaten-up guitar from a friends dad and my cousin Mark O’Toole, later of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, taught me my first chords and I was hooked.
The dead class were formed Feb 2006 in a psychedelic studio in Speakerland.
Since then, we've been travelling in UK and Ireland, released 2 albums on Cuatroku Music. BOO (Oct 2006) and IT'LL DAMN NEAR KILL YOU (APR 2008). Mixing molested pop songs with punk rock, folk, ska, crack cocaine and calpol is what gives the dead class it's unique and disturbingly tasty flavour!
We do quirky songs about cannibalism, consumerism, deranged psychopaths, magic cows and more serious topics like honesty, trust, friendship, relationships, pirateships, scary girls ...blah blah blah..
