EVERAFTA BIOGRAPHY (2005)
“Sensational (and loud) an electric and energetic
Stuart Kidman - W. Sussex County Times
Beautiful and violent, reckless yet enduring, strong
yet fundamentally flawed. Everafta’s tale to date is
one of intense highs and lows, an on-going struggle
that is reflected in their passionate performance.
Characterised by huge melodies, tight hooks that don’t
let go and no fear of being labeled “punk-pop”
(knowing that they can throw the heavy punches too).
Everafta have always relied on solid riffs and tunes
that a crowd of strangers can easily grab hold of,
quickly making them one of the most adored bands in
their home-town, coupled with a reputation of
‘delivering’ time and time again.
Everafta’s true strength relies on the constant battle
between good and evil in their music, epitomised when
the band’s original front man Phil Bland (or Fil
Kablandski, as he was known) committed suicide in
Their success in winning a place in their fan’s hearts
and already cluttered CD shelves depends on their
honesty in songwriting and power in their
performance.Everafta have been through the dirt, been
spat upon by fate and come out the other end with a
big grin and a clenched fist, ready to go again.
Everafta’s latest recording, a full length studio
album entitled “The Epitome of Normality”, was
recorded in live takes at a make shift sound studio in
their home town of Horsham. Produced on more favours
than hard cash, Everafta have taken the punk ethic and
applied it to a small town culture that has no idea
(although much concern in) what they are doing.
Hardship makes a man, and what didn’t kill Everafta
has only made them stronger. In an age where everyone
in modern music wants to be ‘different’, the greatest
bands just ‘are’.
This is Everafta. They ‘are’.
