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.

Here’s a fab little write up on the FB event page for 8th Nov… “Reverse Family-Bit of Pere Ubu vibe here…but funkier, nice biscuit tin drum sound and minimalist approach recalling a lot of post punk stuff with an eery reverb drenched vocal. Lay down a solid foundation and pluck at guitars fitfully atop it as the singer does his David Thomas meets Barney Sumner thing…then the song shift gear and it’s glam / punk, scintillating stuff”

Future son – The Twa Twa’s (day 8) “A gorgeous hook lurks within the angular clamour, Dermot’s vocal delivery a swinging flirtation matching the similar allure of bass. The song in its whole a psyche infesting treat.” The Ringmaster review Half good all pretty (day 9) This house is empty (day 10) “Within its causticity is an instinctive funkiness which has the body bouncing and appetite eagerly exploring words and emotion.
