Dan Lyons was previously better known as drummer for South London post-punkers Phobophobes. He has now stepped out on his own as a solo artist, releasing his debut single “Big Moon.”  It has a bit of a a classic 80’s songwriter sound but amps things up with a distinct sound and atmosphere heightened by sharp guitar work, haunting backing vocals and some wonderfully placed violin. There’s a bit of The Cure heard throughout this track and that certainly isn’t a bad thing.


The song is out now via Shaker Records and can be bought over at his Bandcamp, along with b-side “22nd Century Boy”.” Lyons will also be making the trip to SXSW  next week .

Featuring original Fat White Family drummer Dan Lyons and organ player Chris OC from Psych Fest 2017 alumni Meatraffle, the group are set to release highly anticipated debut LP Miniature World on November 10th.

Firm BBC 6 Music favourites, with current single Where Is My Owner winning the support of Steve Lamacq, Phobophobes currently share a practice space with a score of the UK’s best bands, kindred spirits Fat White Family, Shame and Goat Girl.

After guitarist George Bedford Russell tragically passed away last year, the group following a period of reflection vowed to carry on, with Miniature World featuring his guitar parts on every track and his lyrics on single Human Baby, which features an appearance by author Will Self. 


Part recorded at Abbey Road Studios with Beatles/Pink Floyd/David Bowie associate Ken Scott and mixed by Youth (The Verve, Shack, The Jesus and Mary Chain), the disc brings sleazy glam riffs, garage rock firepower and psychedelic invention together in an intoxicating mixture best sampled live and up close.
