Album Notes
Stopped being a band in 2007. Semi-popular/notorious cult act in the early to mid 2000s. We started an ambitious concept album in 2006, we intend to release it posthumously in late 2013.

Below quotes from reviews. ECDbaby doesn't want us to put URLs here but we have a blogger account with an archive of reviews which you can find in the links and contact section of our website.

Musically Lapsus switch between time signatures and dynamics with meticulous ability, something akin to The Cardiacs on tour in Hell, and their set is awash with sickening samples, gut-wrenching guitars and sweeping classical piano.

On CD it's a beautiful, uplifting classical instrumental, like Rachels with their knobs out, but here in the painfully sweaty environs of the Dublin Castle they force the song through a punk rock wrangler and it still comes out shining like the blood of ten thousand newly slaughtered King Adora fans in the noonday sun.

"...these guys are playing rhythms and melodies that most people would consider impossible; all whilst throwing their Scottish torsos left, right and centre...Your eyes will feel compelled to turn round and look inside your head — there is too much to look at."

"Likening them to anything in particular would be doomed to inaccuracy and above all, injustice. But one imagines purgatory sounds something like this – jagged, steep and plagued by unpleasant weather."

"Describing Lapsus Linguae as original is like describing Charles Manson as 'a character'. "

"You Got Me Fraiche is crammed full with colliding styles and corruption, made to challenge and to thrill and as a result is as devastating as it gets."
