SEARCHING FOR SERAPHIM
2010 is a big year for the five lads from Blackburn, Lancashire with January being spent recording their first studio album the boys will be endlessly promoting for the single and album release later in the year
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth. In between this Earth and the fires of eternal damnation, he set aside innumerable places where time was irrelevant and dreams stood unfulfilled. They were called graduate degree programmes and to them the gullible were drawn in their thousands with empty promises of good jobs and the respect of their peers.
Legend has it that into this male-strum were drawn two visionaries: one with the mind of a manchild and the gait of a puppet, the other with hands bigger than children and legs but half the length of his arms.
Armed with nothing but a Mexistrat and 15 kilos of Yamaha DX7, they set out to replace your inferior dreams with a golden cuckoo’s egg of borderline-neurotic fantasies, a Kinder-Surprise that won’t conjure up images of unexpected progenies in various provincial corners of this seeping isle (Carlisle).
These visionaries were once called Stevie Spiegl and Peter Maskell.
Now, together, they are DIRTY ORGAN.
Apollo's Heir headlined Designer Magazine's all ages special and count their influences as The Killers through to Daft Punk. Expect an energetic set from these lads
"The band generate a ferocious riot of snarling guitars, thunderous drums and some of the most inventive bass play you will hear in any four minute rock song. And what songs!" - Richard August (Manchester Gig Reviewer, Author & Poet)
The quite depressing result of an orgy between Queens of the Stone age, Kings of Leon, marvin gaye and the backstreet boys.
