In Brighton UK, in 1990, a songwriter from Belfast recorded a version of Pharaoh House Crash. It was a year of heatwaves, raves and riots.
Pharaoh House Crash was also chosen as his artist name, because it echoed the three genres that inspired his music: reggae, house and punk and the song's title reflected the dystopian themes of some of his lyrics. Debut single, Epic Dream - a song about global warming - came out in 1993 and although no more music was released, songs, remixes and mash-ups about misogyny, free speech and... partying continued to be recorded. In a world that moves ever faster, Pharaoh House Crash believes in patience, perseverance and passion. And partying.
"Hoyden To Harridan' was started 30 years ago, but it's theme remains prescient - a takedown of the engrained and often casual misogyny in society."
