Birth of the Funeral In 2009, it seemed that everyone’s bands had broken up at just the right time… Michele Vaughn just finished recording an album with a band that she had already left. Still hanging around the studio, drinking beer and writing poetry on the sidewalk out front, she was approached by the recording engineer – Darrell Ashley, who told a funny story about how he and his buddy Anthony Feery were recently expelled from their band. (Apparently, you shouldn’t tell the lead singer that his lyrics are - and I’m paraphrasing - “effing horrible”). Needless to say, here were 3 people who played guitar, drums and sang/wrote music, with no band. But we still needed a bass player… Well, as fate would have it, Anthony and the D (as he is now known), had just the guy. Faris Constantine was their bass player years ago in a band they had when they were hitting the LA metal scene. A quick phone call to the past and one night at Studio 9 in Ontario, CA laid the foundation to what is known today as Uncle Arthur’s Funeral. Southern California’s answer to post grunge, punk influenced, indie rock with a metal edge. We shred live shows all over LA and the Inland Empire with a full set list of original music and a few obscure covers sprinkled in just to get inside people’s heads.
