Legion Of Two is a new project from Alan O’Boyle and David Lacey. It
pits electronics against live drums and percussion for a dark, dense
and noisy dirge. Huge basslines, slow pounding drums and feedback
dominate. Industrial, dub and metal influences are shredded through
old guitar pedals and cheap reverbs and re-assembled into a driving
and melodic force.
Alan O’Boyle is best known for his work in electronic music as Decal
with a catalogue of EPs and albums on labels like Satamile, Planet Mu
and Rotters Golf Club covering electro, techno and experimental music.
He has also been involved in recording, production and/or remix duties
with the likes of Redneck Manifesto, Two Lone Swordsmen, Jape, Super Extra Bonus Party and many, many more.
David Lacey is a Dublin based drummer and percussionist who has been behind a drum kit in some capacity since the late eighties. Since 1997 he has been heavily active in improvised music collaborating with local and international musicians and is also one of the driving forces behind the I+E Festival in Dublin.
Legion Of Two will be announcing an Irish tour very shortly.
