Biography

Rosa Alchemica is a 4 piece contemporary post punk band, formed in 2005. The band’s name originates from William Butler Yeats philosophising novel and study of alchemist’s bearing the same name. Singer Eddie Darko and lead guitarist Andreas Marian first met in their hometown of Tartu, Estonia many moons ago. They both trod separate paths to London, England where they formed Rosa Alchemica. Eddie chose to travel through The Irish republic, learning his trade as a downtrodden yet upbeat distorted troubadour, whilst Andreas headed straight for the big smoke where he was to develop his love of sub pop influenced guitar solos. The multitalented duo also play together in Dead Next Door with Andreas singing and Eddie heading up lead guitar.

Joining Eddie and Andreas is Englishman Adam David Phillips on bass and New Zealander Greg Gibson on drums. Phillips, the group’s only Englishman, set sail for his countries capital after growing up in the shadows of Europe’s largest musical festival, Glastonbury festival of contemporary performing arts. Gibson set out on a journey to London almost a decade ago, stopping to hone his
rhythmic skills in Thailand and Los Angeles, before arriving in the UK on Valentine’s Day 2004.

The Debut Album:
3000 miles 3000 nights was recorded in an abandoned gay bar in London’s east end by Greek musician Alex Miaris (Electric Litany) and Spaniard Manuel Mara. Post production was carried out by Miaris and Darko and Marian.

Guitarist Andreas recalls “The first time I went in this place it was a fucking mess man. The bar was still set up but dry, obviously.
