In Review: Deep Cuts #6

Series finale

Synopsis: MINISERIES FINALE Worldwide. 1977. The Great Unknown embarked on their first world tour, but as tensions in the group begin to rise, might they have already played their final set? Team DEEP CUTS is joined by TOBY CYPRESS (THE GRAVEDIGGERS UNION, Electric Century) for the blistering miniseries finale!

 

The Story

Deep Cuts ends the series with a story about a band that is on the verge of splitting up. The Great Unknown are on what is the first and probably last world tour as tensions begin to rise among the various band members. Lead singer and keyboard player Alice is planning to leave the band for a solo career but is struggling to find the right time and place to tell Sax player Barry, who is her best friend. When a legendary musician passes away. It forces Barry to do a little soul-searching and gives Alice a little bit of a mystery to solve.

 

The Artwork

Toby Cypress puts in a really good shift for this final book of the series. The character drawings were superb as were the depictions of the fashion styles of the late 1970s. Although, as someone who had their childhood in that era. I still have nightmares about those flared pants.

 

Overall

Kyle Higgins and Joe Clark wrap this series up with a fantastic story that shows us how fickle the music industry can be i.e. the split of the band and the rush to find the next new thing. Alice’s decision to go solo creates an interesting storyline which runs parallel to the storyline about Barry and his personal struggle. I loved how the story resolved with the Band playing their best gig ever and with Alice finding some lesser known songs to cover on her debut solo album. 

Overall as somewhat of an armchair musician. I’ve really enjoyed reading these Deep Cuts stories and am kind of sad that the series has to end. Hopefully, something similar to this will come along in the years to come. As its been a fun blend of fiction with a bit of musical history thrown in.
