'Evil'ution on CD

Boston' Midget Jesus has been receiving very positive critical praise for their first 2 records. Their first record, 'What Would Midget Jesus Do?', was produced by renowned Boston legend David Minehan (ex-Neighborhoods/Paul Westerberg, Buttercup). It was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studio in Boston. 'What Would Midget Jesus Do?' is out now and available in local stores and at CDBaby.com. Midget Jesus is comprised of guitarist/singer David Fieldhouse, guitarist Jon Cullen, bassist Chris Regalia, and drummer Doug MacDonald. All of the members have spent time in other local Boston bands, including Blanket Party, Legendary Lunch and The Keep. Driven by Fieldhouse, the first album 'What Would Midget Jesus Do?' is the result of Fieldhouse's long journey from drumming in various London punk bands to becoming a driven singer/songwriter. With his mother being 'with the band' so to speak, the likes of Lemmy, Mitch Mitchell and others were always around, ultimately having undue influence on the young and impressionable Fieldhouse. In his former life, Fieldhouse opened up for the likes of the Psychedelic Furs (on their first show) and The UK Subs, and also credits himself with having a hand in Polly Styrene's nervous breakdown, but that can neither be confirmed nor denied. Fieldhouse moved to Boston in the late 80's with every intention of leading the settled down suburban life we all dream of. Not realizing he was failing miserably at it, he caught the writing bug four years ago, getting up before dawn to record very caffeinated bits of songs into his basement 4-track recorder. The result is a well-crafted pop record rooted in the late 80's/early 90' indie aesthetic of bands like Superchunk, Archers of Loaf and Dinosaur Jr. The boys recorded 'Evil'ution, their second record, with new drummer Doug MacDonald, at Small Church with producer Bob Logan (Vic Firecracker). It is an unflinching rock n'roll records filled with anger, uncertainty, loss and regrets. Falling back on a year's worth of problems and betrayals, 'Evil'ution is the record you make when your life has hit rock bottom and you are just trying to find a reason to get back up.
