About The Evil Usses

The Evil Usses are an experimental psych four-piece from Bristol who have been praised for their almost overwhelmingly wild and energetic live shows.

Having met as part of the final cohort to attend the legendary (and sadly now defunct) experimental Dartington College in rural Devon, Conrad, Dan, Leon and Lorenzo played together in various other styles and permutations before forming The Evil Usses. Having arrived at a sound somewhere between Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Tortoise and Cardiacs, they now find themselves embedded within Bristol's boundlessly creative BLOOM collective.

Their eponymous debut saw them working with Jim Barr (Portishead/Get the Blessing) and their second album Amateur Pro Wrestling was produced by Deerhoof guitarist John Dieterich. Both records have sold out on limited edition colour splatter vinyl. Their third release, the 10” mini-album Muck (also produced by Dieterich), is due for release in April 2018 and sees the Usses stretching the envelope of their playfully warped vision of sonic reality.

Since forming in 2013 they have been supported by Bristol indie label Stolen Body Records. They have shared stages with the likes of Melt Yourself Down, The Comet is Coming and Sons of Kemet and will be embarking on their first major European tour (bringing their joyful noise as far as Greece and Croatia) in support of Muck.

"The overall effect is delightful and makes you want to punch the air. Maybe twice."
Prog
"Worth seeing live by all accounts."
BBC Late Junction
"It's difficult to detail just how impressive The Evil Usses are live without gushing into hyperbole, but that's what they deserve. Immersive and undeniable, they are possibly the best live band in Bristol. Unyielding, relentless and utterly striking live."
Bristol Live
"These ten songs harbour some superlative moments."
The Quietus
"They are one of the most exciting live acts coming out of Bristol, their shows are wild and extremely different to a lot of other bands out there."
