MISS HALLIWELL are a West Midlands based rock group who are at the cutting edge of modern music. After establishing themselves on the local music scene by supporting music legends “The Fall” at the Birmingham Barfly towards the end of 2007 the band have released two acclaimed EPs, performed with their trademark passion and variety at regular gigs and most recently have recorded their entire debut album “DIE SON! DIE!” live at two different shows. These performances were also filmed, as were the strange events that occurred before and after. The band is fronted by the animated, creative force Miles Perhower. Born and raised in the Black Country area, Miles combines his surreal, other worldly visions with sharp witted contemporary observations and then infuses these lyrical gems with the most foot-stompingly exciting rock and pop compositions you will hear today. Already compared to the likes of Captain Beefheart, The Fall, PiL, Radiohead and Pavement – Miss Halliwell are a must see and hear for anyone with a passion for originality in rock music.
Miss Halliwell will be screening their feature film "DIE SON! DIE!" at THE PUBLIC in West Bromwich on the evening of Thursday 10th September 2009. This is the official premiere and it will also include a short live performance from the band. It is open to the general public so if you fancy an audio / visual extravaganza please come along.
There is now a facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=115767676822
for Miss Halliwell's film / album release. The group contains information about the release, latest news and previews.
