Metaphysicians were conceptualised en route to a skydive onto a glacier in New Zealand in 2006. Fuelled by pinot noir and metaphysical poetry, founder members and chief songwriters John Tully and Muiris O'Sullivan sought out death metal bassist Joey Coyne and art/jazz/hawaiian drummer Tim 'Tommy' Tully from the bowels of Medical School exams to flesh out the sound on return to Galway. In 2007, they played 3 historical shows to rabid fans. Their first release, the EP 'Debutant' was released in early 2008. 'Incident Report', their first album, followed later that year. It combines an ethos of whimsy and flimsy with a sound that goes crunch and munch. Top songs include the killer hit 'Drunk Civil Servants at Midnight', the zany 'Credit Card a Kidney' and the totally bogus 'Das U-Boat Song'. Fender boys beware, Metaphysicians are out of the hospital tonight!!
