Euros Childs + special guests
Euros Childs was a founder of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and stayed with the band throughout its lifetime, writing or co-writing most songs, handling most lead vocals, and playing keyboards, among other instruments.
His first solo music appeared in 2005, and his first single, "Donkey Island", was released on Wichita Recordings in November of that year.
Childs' first solo album, Chops, was released on Wichita in February 2006, quickly followed by another single from the album, "Costa Rita". By the middle of 2006, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci had announced their split, allowing Childs and Richard James (who plays The Glad Cafe on 17th August) to focus on their solo projects.
Childs' second solo album, the all-Welsh language Bore Da, was released in March 2007. This was followed in August of the same year by The Miracle Inn.
His fourth album, Cheer Gone, was released in October 2008. It was recorded over six days in Nashville and had contributions from several Nashville musicians including Matt Swanson of Lambchop.
In 2009, Childs released his fifth album, Son of Euro Child, on his newly formed label National Elf. The album began his current trend of releasing all his music through his official website. To date 6 albums and 5 singles have been available to download from his site on a "pay what you can" basis.
2009 also saw Childs form the duo Jonny with Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake. They released their debut, Jonny, in 2011.
The album Ends was released on 28 November 2011 and Summer Special was released on 20 August 2012.
