Tonight it's a folk/rock/shoegaze band from Switzerland. Of course, you wouldn't know that if I didn't already tell you, because The Deadline Experience do not sing in French or German, and their English is rock n' roll perfect.
Seems to be a lot of that going around lately. Time was you were practically ordered to legally sing in your native tongue unless you faced banishment from the airwaves and most nightclubs and public venues, which effectively poisoned your career (unless you packed it in and went to England or the States). Not so anymore. In fact, it's becoming increasingly difficult to figure out just where a band is from unless they tell you. And even then, you're not so sure.

They are more or less starting out, having come from different bands and settling into this new venture. They are scheduled to play the JVAL Festival in (I think) Lausanne this August and Face Down is one the tracks from their MySpace page.
