Dead Centre

nelson diy punk.

formed in 1988, as a four piece. split 1990. reformed 1993, as a three piece, same members, minus singer. vocals now by mike and rik. split again 1998. members – mike – guitars/vocals, rik – drums/vocals, jon – bass/backing vocals. mike puke went on to form his own dunedin punk outfit the pukes. we also came very close to having a cd (old, new, and live). i sent a dat to a cd manufacturer, who refused to make it, because of the cd artwork, which they thought was offensive. i asked for the dat to be sent back, but never saw it again, even though they said they had mailed it. the band broke up a short time later, so the cd never ended up being made.rn- mike puke
