Formed in Boston in the late 70s out of the ashes of the legendary DMZ, Lyres are one of the essential bands of garage music. Fronted by their charismatic leader Jeff Conolly, they're responsible for such glorious and definitive songs as 'Don't Give It Up Now', 'She Pays The Rent' o 'Help You Ann'. Although the line-up has gone through several changes over the years, ultimately it all revolves around Conolly and his incendiary Farfisa. For the last few years Jeff has gathered a stable and truly excellent band made up by guitarist Steve Aquino, a Lyres member since the late 90s, ex-DMZ Paul Murphy on drums and bassist Dave Szczepaniak. It's been over four years since their last visit, so having the chance to listen to all the Lyres anthems again is a more than good enough reason to catch them at any of their four Spanish shows.
