Branded as a musical genius by his peers, Darcy Clay's flame flared briefly, but left a lasting impression on New Zealand music. He was one of the most cutting edge musicians to emerge from the NZ scene in the 90's. His 6 track EP, featuring the cult hit 'Jesus I Was Evil', was released in 1997.
The single was recorded in his bedroom on a 4 track recorder accompanied by a video costing $250 and a bottle of whisky. It went to number 5 on the national singles charts, selling gold. In a 2009 poll the song was voted by bFM listeners as their number one playlist song of all time.
Darcy Clay’s pioneering talent and "country-fried punk rock" are testament to the cult-like figure he's now become. This re-issue features 12 tracks: the original six (the Bedroom Recordings) and an additional six live tracks (‘Songs for Beethoven’), recording during the Blur support slot on October 24 1997 at the North Shore
