The Family Way

about meEver had that dream where an insect invades the ear and sets up home to mercilessly tease and torment thereon in? Reverse Family step forward to announce themselves with a sound which trespasses and festers in the psyche. The difference is that this is set to be the most welcome invasion of ears as it crawls with relish into the imagination. Reverse Family is the solo project of Dermot Illogical, aided by a fluid band of collaborators from time to time, this debut offering is a lo-fi exploration into an experimental DIY web of sounds and flavours which is hard to pin down but certainly embraces everything from post punk and noise pop to indie and old school punk.

Big thanks to Roger Payne from associated press (also frontman with Harpenden based Country Punks – Hubcap Moon) 365 days in a year. 365 songs. Each song represents a single day in the life… A unique experience, a mini drama, a vignette, however dramatic or routine, emotionally charged or neutral, all reflecting the trials, pressures, normalities, mundanities anyone might experience in any given 24 hours… This is a big undertaking to capture the epic undertaking that is life…  As Dermot says himself – “like what a day does, you get what’s next, pretty much whether you like it or not and[…]
