Church of Eon
A Visual and Musical experience. Power, Energy and Purpose. Stand up, be counted, just be there! Drawing from the most energetic and powerful moments in rock and roll history the band offers a new take on alternative rock. The debut album, “All Our Tomorrows” is a statement of sweat, toil and passion.
“We have made a stand, come with us, stand up for all our tomorrows.”
The Great Escape
Sadly Church Of Eon did not get onto any of the venues this year for the Brighton festival. One of the best live bands to see with Nic Austin (Guitarist for Chelsea) fronting this band. They are a new band, giving a new exciting slant on punk and rock and roll. You don’t just go to one of their gigs – you experience it. Next year festival organisers you gotta sign up this band!
Sun shining and the fact the festival didn’t book in Church Of Eon made them determined to come to the city. They came to play in a guerilla style. They spotted a free space – unpacked their gear – played some songs and moved along quickly. This is part of the spirit and freedom of what music is about – and well done guys – you did it!
Plug in and Play!
Guitars unpacked at each of the stops and the first few chords from Marc and Nic always started to draw a crowd. The sound those little amps gave off was just perfect, and Nic with no mic just sang his heart out and together they boomed out across The Lanes, Pavillion Gardens, Trafalgar Street and outside the Theatre Royal. It was a rare and special thing to be allowed to take part and share the afternoon with these guys. So many memories and stories shared over a quick pint – and then they were off again.
Sit back and enjoy. Bump into the crowds as they enjoyed the brief live stops.
Lee and Dairy were on hand to support – chatting to people in the crowd, handing out posters and CD’s. Well done if you got a CD – it is rather good and the songs performed live are on that single “double A side” cd.
These guys were not here for money, they were here to take part in any way they could – sing, play music and share their love of live performance. And that’s one of the things I admire about these guys. They worked hard, the two of them, as their sweat glistened in the sunshine as temperatures soared across the city and people danced in the Pavillion Gardens. Wishing Simon well as he couldn’t make it to Brighton.
Thank you Church Of Eon for letting me share such an extraordinary, fun, music packed afternoon, with one eye open in case we got moved along!
