Earwig


There are two bands called Earwig, each with a totally different sound. One band is from England, the other from America. The European band to go by this name was a small English trio consisting of Kristy Yates on vocals and bass guitar, Sergei Tardo on guitars and piano, and Dimitri Voulis. La-Di-Da Productions released their first 12 inches "Hardley" and "Might" in 1991. Their CD EP "Under My Skin I Am Laughing" perfectly encapsulates the early nineties shoegaze sound of England and was distributed in the United States in 1994. Read more on Last.fm

From a UK perspective, however, it is seen as one of the earliest examples of what came to be known as post-rock in the UK, a genre that included Disco Inferno, Bark Psychosis, Laika and Pram, to designate bands that used guitars but were not interested in 'rocking', and was not closely linked in the UK to the short-lived indie shoegazing scene, which centred rather on a clutch of post-My Bloody Valentine bands such as Chapterhouse, Ride, Lush, Boo Radleys, Catherine Wheel and Moose. They later changed their name to Insides and operated mostly as the duo of Kristy and Sergei, and honed their vision on the Euphoria album on 4AD in 1993. The American band also formed in 1991. They self-recorded and released a cassette, a 7" single (Dinosaur Song/Wounded Knee) and finally a full album in 1994 all on their own "micro-indie" record label LFM Records. Working at a steady pace over the last several years, the band has been in no hurry to sell themselves short for any mythical big break with a major label. Putting out a series of critically acclaimed but hard to find albums, the band has gathered a small, but ferociously loyal, fan base.

A new album is expected (on LFM Records) in late 2008. *** "Earwig is a high energy, stripped down, underground-rock, three piece with emotionally intelligent lyrics. They deftly straddle the line between reckless rock and roll mayhem and deliberate organized song crafting. The Who and Nirvana both come to mind." www.lizardfamily.com www.myspace.com/earwig Read more on Last.fm.
