MEN DIAMLER

www.myspace.com/ mendiamler

You will never forget the first time you saw Men Diamler!

With a cult reputation in the South West, he is an earthly hellraiser and spirit changer preaching a revolution in footstompin' blues, two string serenades, backwoods heartache and pagan folk. A masterful lyricist of sweetness and dark and possessor of a near-operatic voice of such character and power it is truly jaw dropping.

An emotionally stark and unpredictable live show full of naked soul giving, woozy lullabies, sea shanties and spirituals. An enlightening visceral gospel.

"...a star, no two ways about it. Admittedly, a star in some macabre parallel universe where negro-field spirituals, Victorian freakshows, Glaswegian drinking songs, German expressionist art and Italian opera have become the dominant culture." (Decode)

"Sweet and darkness have never sounded so close or so intense... Psychosis never sounded this good and people clap!" Qujunktions

"Lopsided, unapologetic folk music that lives in a fucked up, peculiar world of its own." Thora Zine

" his voice is so astonishing that traffic literally stops.... its as authentic as it gets." FACT MAGAZINE

Fucking hell, that was one heck of an experience! I won't bother trying to put it into words for the benefit of those who weren't there - it wouldn't do him justice.

Suffice it to say: if you missed Men Diamler, you missed out. BIG TIME!

Fiona Keenan was very good, also.
