Dead Elvis was the first album by British band Death in Vegas. It was released on March 10, 1997 in the United Kingdom and on September 16, 1997 in the United States. This was the only Death in Vegas album to feature original member Steve Hellier. The British release features coloured Elvis graffiti on the cover, while the US version features a tattoo artist. The music video for "Dirt" was a minor hit on MTV's "120 Minutes".

Death in Vegas are an English electronic music group, for which Richard Fearless serves as frontman. The band was formed in 1994 by Fearless and Steve Hellier and signed to Concrete Records under the name of Dead Elvis.

Given Richard Fearless' moonlighting gig as a DJ, Dead Elvis is invested with an often overburdened need to push the right buttons, resulting in occasionally formulaic tracks - like the single "Dirt" - which leave little room for surprise. Where Fearless and Steve Hillier opt to explore different waters, dub rhythms and funky acid instead of just sampled guitar riffs, the results are much more impressive.

Dead or alive, Elvis has nothing to do with this debut of kaleidoscopic electronica, a gabby debut that tends to expand towards the big beat without possessing the essential knowledge of how to do it. 8mo. CheapandLethal. No one has said anything yet. Contributions By.

Talk about Death In Vegas - Dead Elvis


Mavivasa
Dirt is the only good track on the album, a big beat track when big beat was at its peek. the rest are wack. if I knew that ahead of time, I would only buy the Dirt single.
Hurus
This album is amazing because tension builds up slowly to Dirt then slows back down to the atmospheric tracks in the end. In 1997 I had never heard anything like that before. If you want full length in your face testosterone big beat you should try Supercharger "Wall to Wall Moustache"
Realistic
I bought this one many years ago, while i visited US a tourist. Mainly it was done because i saw the video for their most popular track "Dirt". Very varied album, but it also suffers from lack of direction. You get hip-hop instrumentals, drony material, danceable stuff with Rankin Roger on vocals and some other things as well. Not that there's anything bad with the fact that they want to show off their skills, but at least they could concentrate more or less on one or two styles instead of trying to do a bit of anything. Nonethless, there are a lot of very well-done tracks, especially on the second part of the album - All That Glitters, Rekkit, Rocco, I Spy, Rematerialised and 68 Balcony are ranging from good to excellent. Most others don't make much of an impression on me. Sorry, guys.

This is a pretty good album, with rather a good bit of variety. Dirt was the mainstream US radio hit, featuring some odd live show samples ("It's a free concert from now on..") and generally pretty rockin'. The rest of the album ranges from odd leftfield stuff to dubby tunes, Twist And Crawl being my favorite of the latter sort. The album isn't generally as dark as DIV can get, though some tracks hint at that darkness.

"Rematerialised" is a cover of the scientist's track "Dematerialize" from his 1981 LP Scientist meets the Space Invaders
