Algernon Doll: Suicide
Omphalic sees Algernon Doll break out from his one man band persona as he continues to hone and perfect an alternative guitar sound that harks back to a sound reminiscent of early 90’s grunge. On Omphalic Algernon Doll really cuts loose and pulls on influences ranging from Nirvana and the Smashing Pumpkins to The Jesus Lizard and Mudhoney to produce an up-tempo, driven rock album.
The new album was mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac, who has production credits on Nirvana’s In-Utero, Shipping News, Missions of Burma, Chavez, June of 44, Rachel’s and LCD Soundsystem. Algernon Doll features Ewan (guitar & vocals), Wull Swales (bass & backing vocals) and Owen Wicksted (drums) with Ewan and Tom Mitchell also playing drums on the record.
To support the release, Algernon Doll will be playing a number of shows in the UK as well as the Radio 1 Big Weekend and Wickerman Festival, while he aims to record more tracks, this time with Steve Albini, at the end of this year or early next year.
We’ve embedded the brand new video for this excellent song, which was filmed at Plan B Books in Glasgow and edited by Tom Mitchell.
