"....scathingly wired and righteously electric garage blues with just so much strung-out soul….  St. Silas are from the back streets of London via an Irish drug tank or junk box or....."
BAND BIOG 
It happened like this: SAINT SILAS INTERCESSION got together because…. Well listen to it, you don’t need to be told why, listen to the chemistry, it had to happen! Probably catholic guilt or something like that, you ask them, I don’t need to, it’s all about the music, just play the god damn music – if this don’t excite you then move over and make room for someone else…… 

So Saint Silas got together, they played a gig just because they wanted to - over at 93 FT East I think it was (or was it The Spitz? can’t recall right this second. Hell, we go to too many gigs!).  They played the gig, messed up some heads, got people all wired up, they got invited to do another one on the strength of that debut, they accepted the invitation….. So the second gig happened at Brixton Acedemy as guests of Placebo at the insistence of Brian Molko - little Placebo guy - is that how you spell his name? I don’t know, don’t ask me, seems like a good guy – he just happened to be at the first gig (there to see Paul The Girl I think he said) and straight away insisted, well he would wouldn't he? It’s just about the music isn’t it? Brian knows.....  Ah come on, you don’t need to ask why, just listen to them. Where were we? Oh yeah, moving on, got to keep moving on…. So Saint Silas Intercession dropped in to a studio to record some tracks… the intention was to put it out themselves until it fell in to our hands… so now, at our insistence (yeap, they’re a band who make you insist!) the debut wired piece of beauty is coming out on ORG. Ah come on, listen to it, no way were we not having a slice of this one ripping at our soul - this is why we do it! Releasing records like this is worth every moment of the bulshit and frustration and anger the music business brings out in me…… This is SAINT SILAS INTERCESSION, this single is why we do all this ORG stuff and this is why we shall continue to do it, its all about the….. 

So SAINT SILAS INTERCESSION will follow their recent storming Brixton Academy show with the release of their debut single.  All About The Money is scathingly wired and righteously electric garage blues with just so much strung out soul….  St. Silas are from the back streets of London via an Irish drug tank or junk box or caravan park or something….. Fronted by a man called Michael J. Sheehy, one time DREAM CITY FILM CLUB leader - they're a blues explosion..... whooosh the debut ST. SILAS INTERCESSION recordings make us just so so so YES. Listen to them!, they sound like an old strung out Irish garaged blues punk rock band from 1967 who would have scared the hell out of Them…….

PRESS QUOTES AND SUCH
Saint Silas Intercession – All About The Money EP (ORG) - 23 in the singles series and a must have, this one will go quickly, it’s all over the radio and nearly blew my speakers and made the floorboards wobble when I put it on. This is pure filth and dirt, the most brutal blues you’ll ever hear. Sounds like The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion shafting the rotting corpse of Jimi Hendrix from behind with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a fag in the other in the most needle strewn back alley you can find. Completely mind blowing and truly fantastic, those people over in Organ land really are spoiling us at the moment. Go support them, for around £12 you get ten singles plus a load of freebies, what more could you want? Grebo - www.vanityproject.co.uk
