Biography

Eugene Francis Jnr Releases Sophomore Album

‘DEATH AND DAS LOVE BYTES’ on March 18th 2013

Eugene Francis Jnr is a very busy man, a talented UK multi-instrumentalist and a troubadour in every sense of the word. Having released his debut LP (The Golden Beatle) in 2008 he spent the best part of the following year touring the record with his seven-piece folktronica outfit (The Juniors). After supporting Todd Rundgren, Tegan & Sara and Coldplay, Eugene sold everything he had accumulated, flew to Los Angeles, bought a motorcycle and set off on a sixteen-month adventure throughout the US, Canada and Latin America. After 26,000 miles he was back in the City Of Angels with stories of an arrest in Acapulco, a fall from a building in La Paz and a haunting at an indigenous burial site. Mostimportantly however, he was overflowing with new song ideas, a sprig of production magic and a brainful of the vivacity catalysed by momentous life experiences. It transpired that the rumours of his death had been greatly exaggerated and ever since then Eugene has been recording his sophomore album (Death And Das Love Bytes) in his own little Californian studio.

It’s definitely a more electronic departure from his previous dalliances with lashings of analogue goodness and hunks of dirty digital meat writhing together in a symbiotic, sweaty mass. The diversity that can be heard throughout the album reflects his many influences and years spent in different groups. Joyful folktronica in places and sinister, minimal and avantgarde in others, he playfully fuses beats, loops and synthesized samples together to form multi-layered and infectious pop songs. Despite overflowing into the electronic stratosphere more than ever before, the songs still carry his trademark vocal –a spliced approximation of Jonathan Richman and Conor Oberst.

Lyrics

Calliope Fuxwar

Written By: Eugene Francis Jnr

Influence shined from all her skin and in innocence she still fights . She came to life when Mnemosyne bedded Zeus for nine straight nights . Linus needed majesty and Orpheus dreamt to sing . So Calliope taught them verse but now who would be the king the king _ wo oh oh oh _ Her vital signs tamed the ancient world and her sex bloomed a myriad . She became Homers rhapsody as he penned the iliad and odyssey . She wanted more than a life in a Apollos hands with honesty she set out to a life with best made plans - But oh no _ Calliope loved the war _ why else be a goddess whore _ she never knew lust before _ wo oh oh oh x

Necronomicon

Written By: Eugene Francis Jnr

She's a love-craft with nothing on
Keeps her voodoo in her necronomicon
Telling the Philistines to spin
Selling the air to levitate in
Speaking the speak in a witches white tongue
Telling me that I'm so well hung

I am Providence quicker than your hearts defence
and ooohhh my gothic girl with your black flag you rule my world
I am Providence more current than the future tense

Tense in her sex on the sea at dawn
Keeps my picture in her necronomicon
Vaudevillian and that’s OK
oozes pheromones in her day to day
and the wolves will flock to see her rye face
She's gonna hit your soul like a tidal wave

and I am Providence quicker than your hearts defence
and ooohhh my gothic girl with your dark star you rule my world
I am Providence more current than the future tense
and ooohhh my gothic girl with your black cat you rule my world

scream it out loud there's harmony forever happily together after the after

I am Providence quicker than your hearts defence
and ooohhh my gothic girl with your dark star you rule my world
I am Providence more current than the future tense
and ooohhh my gothic girl with your black cat you rule my
