Evilyn Strange Q&A

Your name:
Phillip Strange.

Where are you from? 

Derby, UK.

Name of band:
Evilyn Strange.

Who else is in your band?
Al Strange (drums/keys/backing vocals) and Mikael Johannesson (lead guitar).

How would you describe yourselves?
A primordial soup of metal, new wave, gothic, pop and hard rock.

Who are your main influences musically?
Anything and everything across most musical genres, particularly if it involves a guitar and a great singer. My personal favourites include David Coverdale, Lou Gramm, Dio and Ray Gillen... old school! :)

What do you hope to achieve in music?
A Bsc or perhaps a simple GCSE qualification would suffice. Failing that I'd like to record as many songs as I can with Al and Mikael.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
'Mourning Phoebe' is by far the highlight. We have put everything into this album.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Playing to one man and his dog whilst a former bandmate tried to play in tune under the influence of LSD.

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I would go with album opener 'The Ballad Of Evilyn Strange' as it represents our attitude and outlook as a band pretty well.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
Thank you to everyone who has supported us. There are some really great bloggers like your good self, plus Internet Radio Stations that play our music alongside other unknown bands...
