Phil Ashe (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar): Phil was admitted to the ward after experiencing first hand the effects of reefer madness. The 1936 propaganda film was actually a shot for shot biopic of his first experience with the dangerous drug Chris Denvir (Bass): “Over the course of his life, Chris “Bass” Denvir had tried to emulate his hero Steve Harris. However, in a haze a of alcohol and low dulcet tones, he managed to perfectly capture the musical styles of Rolf Harris …perfectly” Alan Nesbitt (Drums): Was found under a bridge using fish as drumsticks and rocks as his drum kit. Shortly after was brought to the psych ward. Ricki Hewitt (Lead Guitar): After the 3 original members had gotten together and expanded their madness they felt they needed something more. In true modern fashion they took to Grindr, where we found a profile stating he liked long walks and holding hands on the beach. His name was Ricki. Will McClenaghan (Rhythm/ Lead Guitar) : After the band began to gel, they realised that something was missing. After a late night showing of the pick of destiny in the ward, the lads realised no one had gotten in contact with Satan to strike a deal. After a quick glance at the codex gigas, they used a nearby troll doll try and animate a demon to discuss the bands future. Being delusional and ill equipped to perform such occult rituals, they managed to lock a soul inside the doll which quickly came to life in a confused and irate manner. Unable to return this creature to the depths of hell, the band decided to keep him on until the day he passes from this mortal coil. They named this creature “Will.”
The band met in the communal area of our local psych ward. After becoming sick of the modern world and the noise that was being spewed out of the radio these days, the 5 lads fell into a deep delusional state. They began to disassociate with the world around them to such a degree that they began having a shared delusion that they were in the greatest rock band to come out of Northern Ireland We are Delusional Silence.
