chronicles of SIR KILLALOT stem back to October 1998. Having
served dissonant sonic apprenticeships in various other local troupes, this
band was formed as a catchment to draw upon and utilise the inspirations
punk, hardcore, pop and rock have to offer for the purpose of furthering
Along the way, SIR KILLALOT's sound has deviated from a more standard structured poppy approach to a tungsten tipped punk rock sound, incorporating equal measures of tune and terror. The resultant sound is laced with unorthodox structures, weird lyrical splatterings, driving rhythms and chunky riffs.
" PAINTING BY NUMBERS " is a 13 track testimony to the need humans have for primal punk based music. It taps into a source gene, spraying out songs like buckshot in a dirty, disaffected manner which could only ever be spewed by a band from Dublin ( that's Dublin proper as opposed to fairy tale Dublin ).
Because of the effect a line up change would so obviously
have on a power trio, every SIR KILLALOT release to date
has seemed like their first, but " PAINTING BY NUMBERS
" is the sound of a band primed for pole position rather than struggling
halfway up the grid.
