“Intelligent lyrics, finely crafted songs and strong vocal and musical arrangements…My Evil Ex are a band to watch.”
Colm O’Sullivan – Red Fm.

“If Jack The Ripper wielded an acoustic guitar the same way he wielded a scalpel, the result might not be a million miles from this…”
Don O’ Mahonay – Evening Echo.

“They are tight and proficient and proceed to woo us with a full, well-paced set of intelligent indie-rock.The fact that this reviewer came away from their set without obvious comparisons is usually a good sign. He'll happily give My Evil Ex a second look in the future.”

Lyrics

Last Of The Big Deals

Written By: Dylan Fitzgerald

Come and take a walk with me, yeah
I like to see you smile
And if the rumour mill is true
Then you’re the best thing to happen here in quite a while

You’re the last of the big deals
You’re the last of the free wheels
You’re the last of the big deals
And if you love yourself too much babe, you know you’ll go blind

There’s a hearse in the Showgrounds
Its a-leaning up against the wall
We’ll take it out and spray the flowers black
From here all the way up to R&H Hall

You’re the last of the big deals
You’re the last of the free wheels
You’re the last of the big deals
We all eat a peck of dirt before we die

Lets go down to Convent Fields
We’ll go get drunk tonight
We’ll take down all the scarecrows
And dance beneath the burning sky

You’re the last of the big deals
You’re the last of the free wheels
You’re the last of the big deals

And if you love yourself too much babe,
And if you love yourself too much babe,
And if you love yourself too much babe,
You know that you’ll go blind
