Edinburgh School for the Deaf believe in noise; they believe in a noise that is physical, magical, that feigns and twists and whisper and tesases, that holds you close and then tears you apart. We close our eyes and see sine waves, broken circuit boards and a pure white pulsating, poetic noise.

Kieran played in Birmingham based noise pop band Baxter, before creating Myles Mahem in Edinburgh.

Sometimes are Peter Pan, Sometimes are Vampyres. They have cheated adulthood. They have martyred child-hood. They are genuine artists, they are base and stuff their rider in their guitar cases and drink it in bus shelters. They are as tight as a ship's crew. They despise each other with a cold hearted passion. They want to play as soft as falling snow. They want to make bang like Neanderthal. They read Dylan Thomas for his grace. They read The Daily Record for the football.

They are from Edinburgh Scotland and play slow and brutal poetry. The songs are of sad eyed remorse sung by throats cried hoarse. The girls sing sweet and the boys sing coarse.
