Erotic Secrets of Pompeii

Erotic Secrets of Pompeii play wild, weird apocalyptic lounge music – a twisted amalgamation of angular art rock and transgressive post-punk, transmitted directly from the heart of the forbidden zone.

?ESOP’s music is populated by grotesque imagery and vivid symbolism, drawing from artists across different mediums, such as Lynch, Dali, Bacon, Blake, Cronenberg, Jodorowsky, Mapplethorpe.

?The band released their debut album, Mondo Maleficum, to wide acclaim in January 2024 and will be touring the record across the UK throughout the year (check the LIVE page for dates).

 ESOP’s music has received airplay from BBC Radio 6, Radio X and BBC Introducing and the band has supported major acts such as Electric Six. 

“They are going to be as adored and revered as cult bands the Cardiacs and Virgin Prunes whilst having the potential to be Muse or Queen. Debut album Mondo Maleficum… is a masterpiece.” – Louder Than War

“They’re destined to be this generation’s Talking Heads.” – Amplify The Noise
