A mysterious cassette-only artist who began putting out material on tape in the late 1980s, although some of it started to appear on CD in the late 1990s. His music is haunting, acoustic rock with a sense of British whimsy akin to Robyn Hitchcock or Donovan (although, as his tapes were distributed from Louisiana, it's uncertain whether the singer is British). It's solid, melodic stuff that would most likely appeal to Hitchcock fans, despite the sparse production. His Bride of the Asylum CD of 1998 put some of his work into slightly larger circulation, in better fidelity. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
Probably bound to pass unnoticed, even on an underground cult level, because of its limited distribution and lo-fi packaging, it's another notch in Damien Youth's bid to become one of the first belatedly discovered cult artists of the 21st century." - From Westcoast writer Ritchie Unterberger on Damien's Sunfield album. } "And here he is, the real star of the book, right at the end of it all. Edgar Allen Poe just picked up a guitar." Mick Mercer a U.K. writer/ From The Book "THE HEX FILES".
