This is the EP I wanted to make for years, but I never had the right people, the right time or the right energy. The people involved in making this have been close friends and musical allies for years, and to produce this with them was a pleasure.

People that see Lee live try to explain their natural attraction to his performance. It’s a kind of electricity. You see the passion in his eyes. You believe what he’s singing. His energy is captivating. His live performances are known to lift up, shake down, and send you off with a new voice in your head. The songs themselves are soundtracks—to his own journey, and journeys we all are on.

When garage punkers meet progressive musicians strange things are bound to happen. White Blacula is one such strange, happening thing. Fronted by the enigmatic performance poet Gym, and featuring members of Zombina and the Skeletones, a.P.A.t.T, The Laze and Ex Easter Island Head, Liverpool’s White Blacula deliver obnoxious rock n’ roll with an absurd twist, which can at any time be absolute pop or total noise.
