Playin’ in Time with the Deadbeat is Slug Guts’ third LP and the follow up to 2011's critically acclaimed Howlin’ Gang. Playin’ in Time sees the band release a record that sounds menacingly desperate, ugly and malnourished. The album was written and recorded during a particularly turbulent year for Slug Guts during which they toured the us, Japan, and Australia, released a live album, and numerous singles. This album draws on Australia’s rough and agitated pub rock history, taking dregs from Australian cult icons Feedtime and Venom P Stinger. Playin’ in time With The Deadbeat was written during a year which saw members of this seven piece endure trips to the mental hospital, jail, court trials, death, rehab, and bouts of violence following thousands of kilometers spent in a van.
