Vulgarithm Talks of EP Series and How All Will Become Whole!


VULGARITHM comes into 2020 straight out of the 90's! Its a styling from hell itself, taking the likes of a but of heaviness, riffs, guitar work, drum beats and synths like no tomorrow. Having released an EP or two, with a third EP in this trilogy of series expected in the coming future sometime. The sole member of this act is Andy "Dirt" McGurk himself talks onward about how this all came to be....


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Vulgarithm has only one member, myself Andy "Dirt" McGurk, and it's history is a short one as well. Vulgarithm was a way of reinventing myself after doing other musical projects, including a 10 year solo project called "hollowtechnic". Just as Vulgarithm had a plan, COVID hit the world, so Vulgarithm exists as an online enigma for now.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

There was no reasoning for landing on the name, as it was a spark of thought, but there was a reason for it sticking. The vulgarity of the music which can feel sleazy and uneasy at points, the rhythm brings out what most people want to listen to these days, and the algorithm part brings many layers into the music, and adding structure to madness.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The "Band" is currently stuck in quarantine in a small town called Market Deeping just north of Peterborough in the east midlands, UK. As venues have died out and other venues largely turning to cover bands, the scene has seemed to have dipped. I will however give a shout out to my other band "BlackHawkDown" who are located near by.

4. How would you describe your style?

 A friend of mine, and a separate album reviewer describes it as "Music on steroids". It is a relentless pounding of heavy riffing guitars, deep electronic drum beats and dizzying synths. It has a vocal and lyric freedom of System Of A Down and Tool, but with a mid 90s dance oriented rhythm, similar to prodigy, chemical brothers etc. NOT NINE INCH NAILS! Trent is my biggest hero in music but I want to stress this is not the lazy guitars meet synths tag.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

My first EP "Share if you agree" is currently out across all streaming platforms, and my second EP "Share if you disagree" will be available 20th November onwards. Expect a journey like a bat out of hell but the motorbike is in fact a train. I have also done many Ibiza classics covers on Youtube.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

My 3rd installment of my trilogy series will be "Share in the 3rd degree" but I have no release date for that.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Once COVID eases, I will try and make my long awaited gig debut. Vulgarithm live is yet to be unleashed onto the public. World domination, the whole world wearing Vulgarithm masks and everyone becomes one great big whole. In all honesty though, I just want to bring my very visual show and show people a really great time, and live on that.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

World domination, the whole world wearing Vulgarithm masks and everyone becomes one great big whole. In all honesty though, I just want to bring my very visual show and show people a really great time, and live on that.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Vulgarithm.bandcamp.com is the main place to buy my EPs, I also have merch at vulgarithm.dizzyjam.com. Just search Vulgarithm across all streaming platforms and I will be there.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Make sure you listen to at least 3 songs before making your mind up, not one song is the same. Also remember that one song may sound serious but in all honesty it's just a lot of fun.
