A former “icepick” in early 2016, we discovered this band through general surfing. Song by song they’re taking over the UK scene with tours all across Europe and their new release All These Countless Nights will be another review here on Renegade Radio soon. Initial songs and impressions are as positive as always.
From their Wiki site:
Deaf Havana was formed when the original members met at the King’s Lynn campus of The College of West Anglia. The band’s roots can, however, be traced back much further with Ryan Mellor, James Veck-Gilodi and Lee Wilson all attending Smithdon High School and playing together in various local scene bands. At college, these members were joined by Tom Ogden and Sebastian Spitz. This early lineup saw Veck-Gilodi singing and Mellor taking guitar and vocal duties. The name “Deaf Havana” came from former guitarist Sebastian Spitz, however the name itself has no literal meaning. The band wrote songs and a demo White Lines But No Camera was recorded in August 2006 at The Lodge, Northampton. The band toured this lineup until Chris Pennells replaced Spitz. Pennells was formerly a member of the band Something About Dave. Around the same time, Mellor handed over guitar parts to Veck-Gilodi, and took on the lead role. (more)0
