Eugene Coyne

South London-based singer-songwriter Eugene Coyne
offers up a witchy mix of hard rock glyphs and acid folk
hallucination, pastoral but with an underlying threat of
pug rock ultra-violence

counterstrike. 

         Aggressive and esoteric.

Perfect for driving at speed                  Or petting your pug.

" With its eleven tracks segued together, grinding guitars and not-a-note-wasted lo-fi minimalism, it is a powerful, abrasive record that grows on its listener with each new hearing. Eugene Coyne’s stream-of-consciousness lyrics and frequently darkly sardonic vocals reflect on the world in crisis and on the edge of impending meltdown as well as the greediness and madness of our political leaders."

Solo acoustic set

 

Eugene Coyne plays electric acoustic guitar through a fair-size dollop of chorus and sings

in a broadly folk style with elements of rock and psychedelia. The set is a medley of moods

and themes. The opener postulates ‘violent revolution’ as the only viable remaining option

for societal change. Musicwise he has a particular preference for chords that retain a

static root while moving triadically up and down the scale (i.e. A minor 7, B/A, B flat/A

for the musos reading this!), creating a mixture of inverted and semi-dissonant harmony

that suits his style of playing.

 

His vocal approach is semi-conversational and a sardonic humour is apparent.

At times his singing is upper register and gentle, almost in early Peter Gabriel or

Richard Thompson territory; perhaps even a slightly vexed Paddy McAloon! There is an aura of

early seventies Canterbury scene but it as if he is returning much later to darker

remnants of that scene; to a time when the optimism has drained out of its former idealism.

By contrast the harder, spoken word element is like venomous poetry aimed squarely

at the rich and complacent. He certainly achieves an interesting balance between

the inventive singer-songwriter and the angry anti-hero poet.
