Euros Childs is a solo artist hailing from Pembrokeshire south Wales.
Having fronted the band Gorky's Zygotic Mynci from 1991 until 2004, Euros went solo and has released 12 solo albums to date the last 9 having been released on Euros' own National Elf label ''I set up my own record label so that I could never be dropped'' says Euros ''I'm on the label for life''.
His latest album 'House Arrest' is due out on the 17th November on National Elf. It was recorded by Stephen Black (aka Sweet Baboo) and Euros at Gus' Dungeon II in Cardiff. The album includes an ode to a colander (My Colander), the joys of being in a coma (Happy Coma) cannibals dining at an all you can eat restaurant (Crystal and Misty) as well as directions to a whist drive (Whist Drive). Euros plays all the instruments himself: ''I think around 12 or so keyboards were used in the end. Mostly brought in carboot sales and charity shops. One was found in a skip. They'd been hanging round the house for a long time it was good to put them to use.''
This gig is part of Euros' first UK tour in two years.
In recent years Euros has toured with a band but this time round things will be different ''It'll be a keyboards and drum machine set up. Which will give me the chance to play material I've never played live before - more of the synthesizers based stuff. There'll be two of us onstage. I'm very much looking forward to it.''
The gig will take place at the Portland Arms, which recently won the NMG award for best small venue 2017.
