OX.EAGLE.LION.MAN. is a four piece British band incorporating three former members of Les Incompétents; vocalist Fred MacPherson, Shaun Patterson on guitar, and Tommy Howson as keyboardist and bassist.
Formed only in the summer of 2006, the band is relatively young, but has already accumulated a cult following assisted by their myspace page, despite a very limited number of live performances.
The name Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man. was derived from the book of Revelations in the New Testament, where the four creatures are recurring characters. With a foreboding sound to match, the band are clearly an odd bunch of early twenty something year olds.
In supreme contrast to many of their contemporaries, Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man delve the psychological depths, the complexities of fatherhood and motherhood. With a dark, expansive sound, the band experiments by mixing noise together with disparate musical elements, with intelligent and melodic results.
SEMIFINALISTS are Adriana Alba, Chris Steele-Nicholson, and Ferry Gouw. “We came from different backgrounds, hopping seas and jobs and lives, doing shit, making shit happen, even before we met at a film school in London. Upon becoming friends things kicked into gear and projects were conjured up, films were shot, music was recorded, bands start and end in weekly cycles. When this creative dust settled Semifinalists emerged. It was with this ship that we decided to sail the emotional terrain. No more post-modernity, just fucking convction.
