Currently looking to release debut E.P this year.



"Since the mines closed down and the chapels fell quiet, places like Tredegar in the South Wales valleys
haven’t offer much apart from one road going south and one going north. When your big Saturday night is
a trip to Blackwwood a town just slightly larger but still too small for the likes of the Manic Street Preachers,
you know you’re stuck somewhere east of nowhere and escape comes football or guitar shaped. Eric
Unseen were all crap at football…
Formed in March 2009 the band had been friends for years through various other acts. Dan had just
returned from London having spent a year around the canal-sides of Camden and the bars of Soho with
young neon-buzzing bohemians but finding it all tawdry and superfical. Bringing a bag full of songs inspired
by his experiences they got into fulltime rehearsals and were spotted by their management at their first
show who immiediately put them in studio with producer Richard Jackson (Super Furry Animals,
Automatic, Duffy) to record their first proper demos in August 2009.
Committed to the lost art of the pop song of Elvis Costello, Ray Davies and the Small Faces; fascinated by
the lives of Danny La Rue and Eric Morecambe (hence their name after the latter’s autobiography) and
destined to sparkle and shimmer across the radio waves, Eric Unseen will bring you sunshine !"
