Deaf Havana are an English pop punk quartet from King's Lynn in the UK. The band was formed in 2005 at the King's Lynn campus of The University of East Anglia. The band's early releases along with constant touring developed a strong fan base in the UK music scene. The name Deaf Havana came from their former guitarist Sebastian Spitz, but the name itself has no literal meaning.
Deaf Havana was formed when the original members met at the King's Lynn campus of The College of East Anglia. The bands roots can, however, be traced back much further with Ryan Mellor, James Veck-Gilodi and Lee Wilson all attending Smithdon High School and playing together in Various local scene bands. At college, these members were joined by Tom Ogden and Sebastian Spitz, this early lineup saw James singing and Ryan taking guitar/unclean vocal duties. The band quickly got down to writing songs and an early 7-track demo, titled White Lines But No Camera, which was recorded August 2006 at the Lodge, Northampton.
The band toured this lineup until the departure of Sebastian and the introduction of Chris Pennells, formerly a member of the band "Something About Dave", who took over guitar duties. In late 2006 the band began writing songs for their debut EP, entitled "Evangeline". Two songs were roughly recorded, titled "The Smiles Were Forced" and "Where It Begins", which were uploaded on to the band's myspace page; open to opinions and criticism from their rather small fanbase. The EP was soon recorded and mixed (with "The Smiles Were Forced" being dropped from the EP's tracklisting). ...show less
