Named after the saint John the Silent, patron saint of recollection and silence the first track from John Of Silence “No Lie” seems highly appropriate.

Bassist of O Emperor Richie Walsh has begun releasing solo musical whimsies under the pseudonym John Of Silence and “No Lie”, released today, April 4th is his first release.

Opening with a fantastic rhythmic riff and dirty bass line (I’m a fan as you know) this funk infused, melodic departure from O Emperor takes in alot of influences. Full of fuzzy guitars and more electronic elements than you can swing a cat at this solo project of Walsh’s just demonstrates the breath of the his and therefore O Emperor’s musical knowledge and illustrates why he had to go it alone on this one. Recorded at Big Skin Studios with Christian Best this is a tasty taste of what’s to come.
