Sounds From The Other City

Irma Vep

Irma Vep is the nomme de guerre of one Edwin Stevens, from Transyllfechan and for the last ten years resident of Manchester. He’s released a string of disparate and devastating albums on various labels (Turqoise Coal, Icecapades, sixsixsixties, endless, golden lab) including our own (comfortable on tightrope) and his own (very bon).
His most recent work ‘No Handshake Blues’ was released by Comfortable On A Tightrope and Faux Discx and he’s broken hearts on a solo tour and melted minds with frenzied full band shows in support of it. Sounds From The Other City finds him in another mode entirely, backed by The Upside Downs— an ensemble put together specifically for the day.
