Loudhailer Electric Company are a new band with a big history in the post punk psychedelic and original Indie scene, featuring ex members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson. The band are making waves with the release of their debut studio album of original songs, recorded by John Spence at Fairview Studio, mastered by Pete Maher, and with original album artwork by Charlotte Pugh.

Loudhailer Electric Company songwriter and vocalist Lou Duffy-Howard had Indie chart topping success with influential indie band Red Guitars, best known for No. 1 single Good Technology and Independent album Slow to Fade, before releasing two albums on Virgin Records.

Guitarist Jeff Parsons pioneered gritty post punk psychedelia with trend setters Dead Fingers Talk whose album – Storm the Reality Studios – was produced by the great Hull born Spiders from Mars guitarist, Mick Ronson for Pye Records.

The line-up is completed by spoken word poetry wordsmith Richard Duffy-Howard and drummer Rich Walker.

Loudhailer Electric Company are:

Lou Duffy-Howard – Songwriter and vocalist Lou had Indie chart topping success with influential indie band Red Guitars, best known for No. 1 single Good Technology and Independent album Slow to Fade, before releasing two albums on Virgin Records.

Richard Duffy-Howard – Poet, former space age trance world dub band spoken wordsmith and acoustic guitarist.

Jeff Parsons – Influenced by The Who and American psychedelic bands, and with a first album produced by the late great Mick Ronson, Jeff’s upside down guitar style sends the Loudhailer Electric Company into orbit.

Rich Walker – Keeping it all together on the electronic/acoustic kit

“Cursus – it’s a fantastic album!” Pete Maher mastering professional for The Rolling Stones, Jack White, Pixies, The 1975, Lana Del Rey…

“A compendium of psychedelic sounds which tap into the folk and rock genres, driven by hugely talented and passionate musicians – beautifully poetic – I’m hypnotised.” Nix Chidlow – BROWSE  – Independent Arts Culture.

“…a magic album. What really draws out the juice is driving through the forest at night with the windows down – wind blowing my hair everywhere – playing it LOUD. I am sure the BIG Lizards and Bandicoots, Snakes and Owls think I’m extra-terrestrial as I whizz by. It is a very very rich experience…” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, New South Wales.

Album of the Year: “Cursus is a wonderful album featuring nine original tracks of psychedelic sounds underpinned with a myriad of references to folk, classic rock and other genres.  The music is highly atmospheric, immersive and hypnotic with the ability to transport the listener to another time and place (mystical or otherwise).” Across The Universal Soundscape

“Loudhailer Electric Company? Brilliant!” Alan Raw, BBC Introducing
