Copyright © 2020. Erotic Secrets of Pompeii. All Rights Reserved.

Erotic Secrets of Pompeii are an apocalyptic lounge act hailing from Bristol, UK, redefining the line between music, self-exorcism, and surrealist architecture.

Initially conceived by frontman and self-appointed Svengali/Koresh figure Thomas Hawtin, ESOP's journey has been like that of an incoming meteor hurtling towards indiscriminate decimation. Alongside Hawtin (vocals/samples/percussion), the band comprises Tom Hackwell (guitars/keys/textures), Tim Helps (drums), Sean Jones (guitar), and Mole (bass).

Debut album ‘Witness in the House of Pox’, released March 2019, winds post-punk and experimental art rock together like two ends of a fraying rope, with songs ringing with disparate elements, from industrial to world music.

"Deliciously disturbing..."

"Like Gary Numan in a horror-filled nightmare jamming with Tom Waits and Franz Ferdinand."
