In Brighton UK, in 1990, a songwriter recorded a version of Pharaoh House Crash. It was a year of heatwaves, raves and riots.
Pharaoh House Crash was also chosen as the name for the songwriter's new band. It echoed the three genres that inspired his music - reggae, house and post-punk. Debut single, Epic Dream - a song about global warming - came out in 1993 and although no more music was released, songs about misogyny, domestic abuse, the right to protest and other stuff continued to be written.
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." (Robin Murray. Clash Music Magazine 27.08.21)
