Erotic Secrets of Pompeii play wild, weird, angular music transmitted directly from the heart of the transgressive zone between art rock and post-punk. ESOP’s music is populated by grotesque imagery and vivid symbolism, drawing from artists across different mediums, such as Lynch, Dali, Bacon, Blake, Cronenberg, Jodorowsky, Mapplethorpe.
The band have received airplay on BBC Radio 6, Radio X and BBC Radio Bristol, and have won accolades such as: Best Local Band 2021 (The Bristol Gig Guide), and Best Band UK 2020 (LWM Awards).
Along with a tour planned for later in the year, 2022 sees ESOP playing Bigfoot Festival and supporting 80’s legends JoBoxers.
Erotic Secrets of Pompeii are: Thomas Hawtin (vocals), Tom Hackwell (guitar/synth), Sean Jones (guitar), Julian Port (bass), Alex Auld (drums).
FFO: Talking Heads, Pixies, Nick Cave, Gang of Four, The Fall, XTC, Roxy Music, Thee Oh Sees, Nina Hagen, Walt Disco, Viagra Boys.
