Irma Vep is the vehicle for the multi-faceted and prolific Edwin Steven’s solo works. Since leaving the spawning pool of Llanfairfechan for the sprawl of Manchester, Stevens has been a persistent presence in the NorthWest underground, featuring in groups including Sex Hands, Klaus Kinski, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, and Yerba Mansa.
As Irma Vep he balances somewhere between tongue-in-cheek braggadocio and regret-filled introspection, and projects it all through a fog of scuzz and echo, playing unashamedly sincere songs that conjure up images of The Velvet Underground, Robert Wyatt, Country Teasers, and Smog.
Irma Vep tour dates listed on Ents24.com since May 2016.
