The Sans Pareil formed in 2005 as a guitar and violin duo originally called Pariah. After relocating from deepest, darkest Kent to greyest, murkiest London they spent the next 2 years song writing, recording and playing live. In 2007 they self released the Cul-De-Sac ep and afterwards recruited a full-time drummer upon which they wrote a new set of songs.
4 of which comprimise the MMVIII ep, recorded at the arse-end of 2007, it displays The Sans Pareil's driving rhythms, urgent guitar lines, sorrowful violins and desperate rattling vocal; all of which seek to reconcile the simplistic beauty of folk with the raw, cathatic energy of garage-punk.
Since its completion, they have begun performing live as a 5 piece with the inclusion of second guitarist Davey O'Donnel, and vocalist Adelf, and are currently training Gory the new bassist.
Update: Davey gone, Pete gone, Bones joined, Martin (of Train Chronicles fame) joined, new EP entitled saturnine released free on the world wide cyber matrix, many harsh words spoken, many pints spilled, many doobs inhaled…
