In Brighton, in 1990, a songwriter chose the name Pharaoh House Crash for his band. The name was perfect: it echoed the three genres that inspired the music - reggae, house and post-punk - as well as being about the collapse of a society, something the songwriter was increasingly curious about, (probably from growing up during the Troubles in Belfast). Their debut single Epic Dream - a song about global warming - came out in 1993 and although no more music was released, songs continued to be written. The lyrics dealt with misogyny, domestic abuse and the right to protest - subjects that are unfortunately still relevant today. The songs have now been digitised, overdubbed and released on the usual platforms.
In a world that moves ever faster, Pharaoh House Crash believes in patience, perseverance and passion, (and partying!)
