About The Wedding Funeral
The Wedding Funeral is the brainchild of internationally touring, alternative punk-blues musician Darren Deicide and roller derby veteran Ethel Lynn Oxide. Using vernacular and primitive instruments, including musical saw and 3-string diddley bow, The Wedding Funeral weaves tradition with contemporary gothic sensibilities to create a sound that one review called "both haunting and alluring all at once". "The Wedding Funeral is the kind of music that evokes imagery. Like the best tales told around a campfire, or in the dark under a blanket--you feel like you are being let in on an ancient secret that raises the hair on the back of your neck, and draws tears from your eyes because you refuse to blink lest you miss a single second," says Speak of the Devil. Their first demo recording, Beneath the Floor Boards (Covered in Feces), is 4 songs and was released over the span of October to November 2017. "They gave us four songs, four songs that you will love or hate. There is no in-between. I have played this demo to an eclectic mix of friends. Some hated it, most of them loved it. And even the ones that hated it, told me there was something about these songs...something they couldn’t grasp, something eerie...and eerie it is!" says Old Style Music Nights. Future plans include a full LP and touring.
Darren Deicide is a long-established musician who maintains a continuous international touring schedule as a solo artist and as a member of the Wedding Funeral. As a mainstay in the independent music scene, his many accomplishments towards music, journalism, and culture are documented in his bio.
Ethel Lynn Oxide
Adopting her moniker from her roller derby career, Ethel Lynn Oxide learned vocal training at an early age through her involvement in accapella choirs. Motivated by an interest in obscure and forgotten instruments, Ethel taught herself the musical saw. The Wedding Funeral showcases this as well as her multi-instrumental talents.
