Having served as front man for the three-time ARIA award nominated Hip Hop/Punk outfit Butterfingers for the last nine years, Evil Eddie is now trying on his ‘solo man’ suit for the first time ever as he releases the brand new single ‘Queensland’.
With an APRA award for Most Performed Urban Work already to his credit, “Evil” (as he is affectionately known by his ex-girlfriends) shows no signs of straying from his roots (figuratively speaking) and further hones the Hip Hop/Punk blend that riff raff around the world have come to know and moderately like.
On his highly anticipated debut album tentatively title “Welcome To Flavour Country”, Eddie will follow in the footsteps of artists such as Prince, Dave Grohl and that homeless guy in the Valley Mall, by recording all of the instrumentation entirely by himself.  This is, of course, with the exception of drums because as many of you would know, Eddie’s way too unco to do anything remotely rhythmical with more than one limb at a time.
The first single off the album, a little diddy about his home-state aptly titled “Queensland”, has already seen critics and friends alike shocked and appalled at the lyrical content and generally brazen attitude that comes with Evil’s rock star-style delusions of grandeur.  Released on his own label Bewilderbeats and distributed through MGM, “Queensland” is doused in Eddie’s trademark impious lyrical style.  Some call it uncouth, while others call it brilliant.  We prefer brilliantly uncouth.
The Evil Eddie live show also makes it’s debut this year with an all star Brisbane based backing band boasting backbone members of Butterfingers, Laneous and the Family Yah, Bang Bang Boss Kelly, The Disables and Spitfireliar.  The line-up will take the stage at the 2010 Peats Ridge and Woodford Folk Festivals, and may also pop-up to play a couple of other secret shows around the place.  Whether it proves to be a raging success or an epic failure the Evil Eddie experience promises to be something of a spectacle for all who are there to witness it.
