Ichigo Evil

THE EVIL USSES make a kind of undefinable, instrumental, protopunk, jazz not jazz, noise that reaches extreme euphoric moments on stage. Inspired by the nonsense poetry and music of Ivor Cutler and angular altrock groups such as Deerhoof. They have been touring across the UK and Europe for nearly a decade to drools of cult like extasy. Releasing records via Bristol ‘Stolen Body Recordings’. On bills including Paddy Steer, Henge, Part Chimp, The Comet is Coming and Melt Yourself Down.

ICHI is the Japanese One-Man-Band dadaist instrument maker, songwriter and performance artist. Releasing music with Pictish Trails ‘Lost Map’ Records, ‘Kit Records’ and ‘Sweet Dreams Press’ in Japan. He has performed his hugely unique show to metal heads, grandmas, folkys and crying toddlers across the world including performances at Green Man, Glastonbury, Supersonic as well as an art instillation at End of the Road festival which virilized.

Earlier in 2022 The Evil Usses and Ichi got together to work on some tracks, a few weeks later they formed for the first time as Ichigo Evil, performing a bounce-off-the-walls-bonkers part improvised set to a sold out Bristol Psych Festival. 2023 saw the guys put out their first release, a cassette of demos and home recordings. They have since taken their live show to WhereElse in Margate and Wanderfal Festival in Cornwall.  The band Squid saw the Evils live at the festival, recommended them via The Guardian and have invited them on tour this Autumn.
