SOUTHEND RECORDS PRESENTS THE AMAZING EUROS CHILDS Euros Childs is a solo artist hailing from Pembrokeshire south Wales. Having fronted the band Gorky's Zygotic Mynci from 1991 until 2004, Euros went solo and has released 12 solo albums to date – the last 9 having been released on Euros' own National Elf label ''I set up my own record label so that I could never be dropped'' says Euros ''I'm on the label for life''. His lastest album 'House Arrest' is due out on the 17th November on National Elf. It was recorded by Stephen Black (aka Sweet Baboo) and Euros at Gus' Dungeon II in Cardiff. The album includes an ode to a colander (My Colander), the joys of being in a coma (Happy Coma) cannibals dining at an all you can eat restaurant (Crystal and Misty) as well as directions to a whist drive (Whist Drive).

Euros plays all the instruments himself: ''I think around 12 or so keyboards were used in the end. Mostly brought in carboot sales and charity shops. One was found in a skip. They'd been hanging round the house for a long time – it was good to put them to use.'' Euros will be embarking on his first UK tour in two years around the release of House Arrest. In recent year's Euros has toured with a band but this time round things will be different ''It'll be a keyboards and drum machine set up. Which will give me the chance to play material I've never played live before - more of the synthesizers based stuff. There'll be two of us onstage. I'm very much looking forward to it.'' With support from THE PLAN ‘A band with a wide open vision, the group - who boast members of Wetdog, Vic Goddard’s Subway Sect, and more - fuse post-punk with folk, no wave with psych... It’s a heady brew, and one we haven’t really tasted before. Effortlessly inventive,’ Clash ‘Immediately hooked. Drums clatter. A voice challenges... Strange rhythmical, strangely magical music. This is The Plan. Playful yet not. Intent on changing your preconceptions’ Everett True ‘The perceptiveness of Ray Davies meets the eerie folk of Shirley Collins meets the unstoppability of the Fall meets the combustibility of the Raincoats’ Tim Burrows, journalist (Quietus, Guardian) ‘The Plan are as compelling as they are inventive... with a power and creativity that is very much their own,’ Zoë Howe, musician and writer (Typical Girls: Slits biography, Barbed Wire Kisses and more) TICKETS £12 on the door or £10 in advance from Ticket Tailor
