MORE ABOUT ALEC K. REDFEARN AND THE EYESORES

ALEC K. REDFEARN AND THE EYESORES- AKR and The Eyesores formed in 1997 originally as an outlet for Alec's singer/songwriter material, but has since expanded into something far more ambitious and a lot harder to describe. Slow, simmering, noirish dirges, spastic no-wave tangos, repetitive rhythmic conundrums, Weimar-style cabaret songs, Drunken revelry, crippling depression, extreme self loathing, Catholic guilt, clanking, scraping and radio noise are some of the many facets that make up the Eyesores' sound. Always evolving and ever elusive, The Eyesores have consistently left their audiences equally enthralled and confused. The band has performed in various forms as a chamber trio or quartet with accordion and strings, as a rock trio of accordion, guitar and drums, and as a big band with strings, guitars, drums, electronics, brass, and hurdy-gurdies, and sometimes just Alec solo, singing and playing accordion. The band has also accompanied theatre and dance troupes such as the Everett Dance Theatre and has worked with Providence independent film director, Laura Colella. The Eyesores have released three CDs and one split 7 inch single (see discography page for details)
