Ella Flame & The Nighthawks







So it goes something like this...

In 1991, Dan, Clive, Danny & John formed The Charles Napiers and unleashed their Mondo Wray instrumental sound upon the world. Clive left in 1995, Danny in 2000, then in 2005, shortly after the Napiers had finally hung up their boots, Dan, Clive & Danny started playing together again as sinister stripped-down instrumental combo The McDeath Trio. A few years later they played a couple of gigs backing astounding chanteuse Stephanie O.



They then morphed into the DC3 for a few more gigs, then around mid-2014 popped a dust sheet over things...

...until early 2016, when Stephanie O reappeared and whipped the dust sheet off.

Now armed with a shiny Fender Tele to augment her golden tonsils and backed by the familiar reverb twang/baritone bass/minimal drum sound of the chaps, the band is relaunched as...

About Me

My photo
West Sussex, United Kingdom
Upside Down Guitar, Bass, Uke, Mandolin, Banjo, Bouzouki and Cigar Box Git. In 1984 I picked up a right handed bass guitar, but being left handed, turned it upside down and taught myself to play cackhanded. Seeing no reason to change this, I have since applied the same logic to all other stringed instruments (doesn't work so well for piano). Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to play with upwards of 25 top combos, and have been lucky enough to play gigs in England, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, NL, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain & the US, releasing a number of records along the way. Further details can be found on the various pages of this site. I am also a quizmaster, record spinner, radio presenter and Scrabble obsessive. Contact: eviljackmcdeath[at]yahoo[dot]co[dot]uk
