London After Midnight (LAM) was formed in the 1990s by Sean Brennan. LAM has retained and nurtured the political and socially aware element of the later punk scene that virtually vanished from the music scene in the 1990s and has developed as a deep, passionate and political dark rock music entity.
Live members vary but include Sean Brennan, Randy Mathias, Pete Pace and Matthew Setzer.
LAM has gained a large and loyal following all over the world, from the USA, Europe, Latin America, Russia, and beyond, to Japan, China and elsewhere (appearing in major press and securing distribution deals with record labels).
London After Midnight has headlined and co-headlined concerts and major festivals with bands like The Cure, Green Day, HIM (HIM and Marilyn Manson have cited LAM as a favorite artist and notable part of the music scene), and countless other artists. LAM has performed to crowds of over 30,000 people as headliner or co-headliner on major music festivals around the world. Still, London After Midnight maintains a strong underground and independent “personality” despite being a top seller (charting in the top 10 European DAC charts with each CD released) and a major draw at music festivals year after year.
Songwriter, instrumentalist, producer and founder Sean Brennan is known for his strong stances in favor of animal rights, pro-environmental and human rights issues, anti-corporate control of media, and progressive politics. Whatever the approach or subject matter, the music of London After Midnight is deeply touching, powerful, socially aware, romantic, emotional, haunting, danceable, and often exhibits a morbid wit.
LAM is all this, having a very well defined personality while at the same time appealing to a wide variety of people. There really is no classification that fits London After Midnight (despite LAM’s “dark” image) because the music is so varied and the lyrical content (and even LAM’s personality and causes) are uncommon in today’s music scene, often breaking boundaries- much to the outrage of people who live and die by genre labels. Sean Brennan shuns all labels (as any artist worth their salt will do) and the music he creates can really only be classified as “London After Midnight”.
The latest London After Midnight CD, Violent Acts of Beauty (released in Europe on Trisol, Russia on Iron D, and the USA on Metropolis in 2007/2008), has received critical acclaim with Germany’s top music magazine, Orkus Magazine, proclaiming “Violent Acts of Beauty is a masterpiece of sound and lyric”. The next LAM CDs are due to be released soon and are sure to thrill old fans and new fans alike.
