London After Midnight – the story
London After Midnight was formed in the 1990s by songwriter and instrumentalist Sean Brennan. In the early days London After Midnight had various temporary members who joined Brennan when performing live, but did not perform on the albums. Tamlyn is credited on the first cassette recordings, co-authored the opening track “This Paradise” on “Selected Scenes From The End Of The World”, contributed an instrumental called “Ice” for the 1998 release of “Oddities” at Brennan’s request, and an instrumental entitled “Perversion” on the 93′ “Ruins” demo tape released as a preview of what was to become their second album, “Psycho Magnet”.
The last London After Midnight album, “Violent Acts of Beauty”, was released in 2007. The band however re-released (in 2003) two of the past three releases in Europe and the Russian Federation, adding previously unreleased bonus tracks. In 2006 a new London After Midnight song was released on the “Saw II” motion picture soundtrack.
