Dan Melchior is originally from the suburbs of London, though he has been living in the USA for the last 16 years.
First appearing on record in 1997, he has since recorded over 35 lps, and collaborated with artists as diverse as Billy Childish and Graham Lambkin.
He is arguably the only artist to have emerged from the ‘Medway Scene’ that has actually managed to plough a furrow outside of that very narrow field.

As one of the world’s last truly great songwriters, Melchior’s voice grows stronger than ever over a string of recent releases by his “band” Das Menace. His music can’t be neatly partitioned into a narrow genre although one can detect elements of blues, vintage R&B, British psych pop and more recently even brazen experimentalism
