Album Notes

The name may sound like a B-grade, drive-in horror flick, but……

they are a raw and raunchy trio from Canada’s capital with a growing legion of fans, and reputation for intense stage shows. Their sound is real rock’n’roll, with a roots-rock flavour. The band can easily do a rocking surf instrumental with the fervor of Dick Dale, and, in a heartbeat, shift gears to roll right into a rockin’ rockabilly rave up, or a Stooges influenced, feedback infused, pounding rock’n’roll song.

Since forming in the summer of 2005, this trio has been regularly playing many of Ottawa’s live music venues, as well as in Toronto, Montreal, and several cities in Southern Ontario. They were invited to perform at the 2008 Ottawa Blues Festival, one of the most popular music festivals in North America. Their original material, as captured in their recordings (see below) matters most, but for their live shows, the band likes to have fun by whipping out some heavily “Evil-ized” versions of songs by the likes of Dick Dale, Black Sabbath, Tom Waits, Deke Dickerson, Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn, Link Wray, and, even Alice Cooper.

Evil Farm Children are:
• Dave Kerr - Guitar and lead vocals; Former bands: DeadBeatDads, WizzleTeeth.
• Janice Fitzsimmons - Bass, lead and backing vocals; Former bands: The Ambassadors, Revv Engine.
• Jeb Bond - Drums, background vocals; Former bands: The Restless Virgins, Screaming Bamboo, Fenton Brothers, Purple, Evil Kneivel, Tall (Baton Rouge, LA), Freudhammer.

In the fall of 2006, Evil Farm Children (EFC) released their 5-song CD, Knuckle Duster, available through their MySpace page, and at live shows. In just 5 original songs, the CD demonstrates the band’s range from surf, to country, to psychobilly. The CD charted on both CKCU and CHUO in Ottawa, and was selected as one of the best local releases of 2006 by several CKCU DJs. The Knuckle Duster CD has received airplay on Hoboken’s independent radio station, WFMU, which broadcasts throughout the New York City area. The title song, Knuckle Duster, has been included in the soundtrack to the independently produced documentary Project Canada (http://projectcanada.org).

Evil Farm Children II: The Evilling is the latest recording by EFC, and was officially released in the fall of 2008. Of the 9 songs, 8 are originals. The one cover, which is a staple of their live shows, is a surf-rock version of Hangover, by Canada’s legends of the 70’s, Max Webster. Dave sings lead on Hangover, as well as Border Blaster (an ode to free-form radio), Booze Can (about your fave drinking hole), Brain Buffet (a zombie love song), & Straight’n’Narrow ( a tale of hard times). Janice sings lead on the haunting revenge ballad Valley Justice, and the album is rounded out with three instrumentals. The new album is charting on both CKCU and CHUO in Ottawa, as well as receiving spins on CHRW (London), CHRY (Toronto), CJAM (Windsor), WFMU (Hoboken NJ), and KSER (Everett, WA), among others.

The CD release show for Evil Farm Children II: The Evilling took place late September, in front of a sold-out crowd in Ottawa’s Dominion Tavern. EFC started the set by playing the new album in its entirety. Special guests Marie-Josee Houle, Slim Reaper (Big Jeezus Truck), Rob Bennett (The Bushpilots), Ian Vance (Boom Creek), and Miss Maureen & Gilles Mantha (Good2Go) were all pulled on to the stage to help finish the night off by joining in for a set of raucous cover tunes. Earlier that same day, EFC performed a short, “unclogged”, in-store set at Sounds Unlikely (5 Arlington St., Ottawa) to help promote the new album.

The Evilling...
What we're talking about here is some quality rock'n'roll from a band with one of the coolest names in the business. Surf rock instrumentals aside, the tracks on this album are energetic, well-played and should have enough cross sub-genre appeal to give most x-Billies a kick. WARNING: do not play The Evilling in your car, you'll end up with your foot to the floor and the blue noses zapping you with their little fun detectors.

Plays like a soundtrack to some greasy, rauchy, down and dirty spaghetti western. It's infectious like a zombie bite ! Loved it!
