An Evil Biography
A taster EP (Songs for the Road) was unleashed on the unsuspecting public in September with 7,000 free copies being planted in strange places across Ireland by the Evil Uncle Guerrilla Distribution Army. The response has been overwhelming ("...surely one of the most creative Irish releases this year." - Alternative Irish Music Review, "...if this is a taste of things to come we’re in for a treat." - Elbo Magazine). Whisps of Wilco, Jarvis and Grandaddy can be felt floating about here and there like ghosts and He has certainly picked up a storytelling trick or two from the eloquent Ray Davies.
He is about to release His debut album "Two Lights Not Broken" from its cage where it has been prowling menacingly. This was recorded by Evil Uncle in various spaces across India and Europe and mastered by none other than Aidan Foley (other clients include Van Morrison, U2, Foo Fighters and The Frames). It is shaping up to be a masterpiece capable of meeting the massive anticipation head on.
