Biography

ANGRY OLD MAN To Whom It May Concern: Straight out of the basement of the great CBGBs and into the hearts of a disgruntled homeland comes Angry Old Man. The voice of a bitter and ripped off America. A three piece band of punks, half-breeds and mudbloods, who are just trying to get their brand of alternative/punk pop rock (with a twist of grunge and blues) out to an unwilling public. So far AOM have made a name for themselves spreading the disgruntled gospel at several of the NYC areas finest clubs, like The Elbow Room, The Bitter End, Don Hills, Finally Freds, The Knitting Factory, Fontanas, Uncle Mikes, The Soul Cafe, Kennys Castaways, The Iguana, The Pussycat Lounge, The Backstage, The Hook, Wild Spirits, 169 Bar, and home base to the myth, CBGBs. They also have been featured on the legendary Jamaican radio station Airy FM, WDCB in Albany, NY, and WRGW in D.C. Led by the by crotchety old fuck himself, Yvan Sehr (evan sear) a singer, guitarist, songwriter the dynamic and unexpected front man was born and raised in New York. AOM produce a sound that has been compared to what it might sound like if Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and The Ramones and some gypsy ladies were in a massive rocking orgy. Before Angry Old Man was formed, Yvan was a solo singer/songwriter making the rounds of the New Yorks Underground scene. After being briefly singed to a rap label, opening up for Korn (kinda) at CBGBS and working with, then getting ripped off by Miles Copeland, manager of Sting, B-52s and the Police, Yvan finally decided it was time to put his acoustic down and put a band together and thus was born Angry Old Man. Now rounded out by the Matts: Matt Reed (mat read) on bass and Matt Livreri (mat live-eerie) on drums, AOM have released their self produced debut EP, Story and Song ,which serves as a perfect introduction to the funk that is Angry Old Man. They are currently working on the follow up, tentatively titled, Now U Know Asshole. Weve been ripped off, screwed over, taken advantage of, and have been ignored by the industry , but were still rocking with a sneer and a curled upper lip -Angry Old Man
