Stephen Evens

Stephen Evens needs YOU

Stephen Evens is a songwriter who has a lot of bitterness and resentment and is channeling it into writing songs to void it manifesting itself as a cancer or an abnormal growth. The songs are beautiful and the words are horrible. I don’t know why you don’t think that’s a good thing. It’s all our fault.

My good friend and bandmate Stephen just happens to be the man behind Stephen Evens. I hope you’ll trust me when I tell you his tunes are worth listening to attentively, not because I know him but because they’re quite marvelous. I especially recommend Gloria’s 100 Million Daughters, which makes my tummy go all funny.

You might even consider seeing his gig at the 12 Bar Club next Monday (8 June 2009). The password is “mukluks”, just tell him Big Vinny sent you.

Angular Spirals / Get What You Pays For

Angular Spirals / Get What You Pays For is my new double A-side single. It’s a 7″ black vinyl record, limited to 500 copies. It is available at Videosyncratic on Cowley Road. A bonus CD-R is also available for online orders.



Announcement: New Single on the Way

I am currently going through the arduous process of personally hand-etching two songs into 500 pieces of shiny black vinyl. These pieces of vinyl are flat, round and about seven inches in diameter. The songs will be Angular Spirals and Get What You Pays For. The former can already be heard on MySpace and other such online networking resources, while the latter is a brand new version completely different to the acoustic demo doing the rounds. I am unable to decide on the relative importance of these two songs, so the single is by virtue a double A-side. Get What You Pays For features glorious saxophone insanity by Pete Wareham of Acoustic Ladyland fame, and both tracks feature Stephen Gilchrist on drums and Ruth Goller on bass. I will set up a pre-order system soon.
