The Evil Usses
Having met as part of the final cohort to attend the legendary (and sadly now defunct) experimental Dartington College of Arts in rural Devon, Conrad, Dan, Leon and Lorenzo played together in various other permutations before forming The Evil Usses. Having arrived at a sound somewhere between Captain Beefheart's Magic Band and Deerhoof, they now find themselves embedded within Bristol's boundlessly creative music scene and part of the 'Bloom' collective.
Their eponymous debut saw them working with Jim Barr (Portishead/Get the Blessing) and their second album 'Amateur Pro Wrestling' was produced by Deerhoof guitarist John Dieterich. Both records quickly sold out on limited edition colour splatter vinyl and have since been repressed. Their third release, the 10” mini-album 'Muck' (also co-produced by Dieterich), was released in April 2018 and saw the Usses further stretching the envelope of their playfully warped vision of sonic reality. LP number four is currently in the oven and will be released in late 2020 on new label Dawn Chorus Recording Company started by Canterbury psych legends Syd Arthur.
Since forming in 2013 they have been supported by Bristol indie label Stolen Body Records. They have shared stages with the likes of Melt Yourself Down, The Comet is Coming and Sons of Kemetand have embarked on several European tours, bringing their joyful noise as far as Greece and Portugal.
Leon Boydon – Bass; Dan Truen – Drums; Lorenzo Prati – Sax and Keys; Conrad Singh – Guitar
