Biography

Blindfolds are John Gerard O’Neill, Joshua Campbell, Stuart Ivens and Conor Jack Goldie. Four Glasweigans still in, and barely out of their teens. Ballsy psyche filled rock n roll music. Dubbed with “swamp pop”, “evil glam” and “spooky blues”. Their music crosses Cramps-esque dirty surf with 60’s psychedelia and Tom Waits attitude. The live performance; more intense than Pulp Fiction on a bad trip. Possessed and hallucinogenic.

“A set that exuded the kind of attitude and primal energy that you would have expected of band tearing up a New York basement in 1975.” (Bluesbunny.)

Lyrics

Taste Young Blood

Written By: Blindfolds

Six heads on, twelve legs long twelve arms strong,
the darkness takes us in with his riddles and charm.

Home, Home, Home, Home, Home, Home.

I never hold my breath when I go south of west
for the presence of Death is in passing footsteps.
Inside this keyhole of the moon is where hearts meet in full bloom.

Home, Home, Home, Home, Home, Home.

We are dancing unexplained cast by bonfire blaze.
In the night we live to love.
Sink fangs deep to taste young blood.

Home, Home, Home, Home, Home, Home.

Some shiver at the shrieks of those creaking head stones
with passing heart beats from the tales men speak.
I learned a long time ago that each ghost appears to welcome us home.

Home, Home, Home, Home, Home, Home.

We are dancing unexplained cast by bonfire blaze.
In the night we live to love.
Sink fangs deep to taste young blood.

Home, Home, Home, Home, Home, Home.

Standing beneath the trees that's where I long to be.
As they creep over me I see.
Into the darkness we fall looking for something beautiful.
Into the darkness we float, we float.
