Men Diamler

Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™Men Diamler is a British folk musician. He plays live regularly as a (sometimes guitar-accompanied) singer.


"Men Diamler is a young man with a cult reputation in the South West who will not be tamed by the powers that be, reconfiguring a English/Welsh soul music through woozy operatics and wild and weird song/stories. Sweet and darkness have never sounded so close or so intense in such performer. Despite his tender age he is a channel for old thyme ways - footstompin' blues, two string serenades, backwoods drinking hollers, horse play and pagan folk all get exorcised. Psychosis never sounded this good and people clap" Qujunktions

" .. tears away at your singer/songwriter preconceptions, replacing them with black humour and visceral gore" Rottenmeats

"imagine Roy Orbison with a two punctured lungs and John Fahey with a fractured hand?well, he sounds better than that"

"Mr. Diamler's music seems to carve its initials somewhere between Son House & Syd Barrett on the musical park-bench. That said, this is fiery and unapologetic music that lives in a fucked up, peculiar world of it's own. Lopsided folk music that leaps at you, sometimes very literally" Thora Zine

"Men Diamler cannot be ignored. He looks a little like electric-era Bob Dylan, and it's just him and his guitar, and sometimes it's just him, a cappella – not even always in front of a microphone – but his voice is so astonishing that traffic literally stops. Yes, I know what I've just said. He makes sure we know we're watching a performance of spiritual-gospel-blues, but it's authentic as it gets. Again, I know what I've just said, but it's true. It's ridiculous, in all honesty, because somebody with much more influence than I have should be writing about him. FACT MAGAZINE
