Initially a solo project, the first recordings were made at break-neck speed in early 2000. 15 year-old Ryan had been writing, recording and producing his own material for some time and finally gave in to the fact that a one man show could not deliver the energy that your average four-piece could; thus carefully spawning the band that was Ryanisfun in 2005. Once the group had rehearsed the tracks, the show was swiftly put before audiences in and around Newcastle, receiving very mixed and bewildered responses from the people who dared to watch them. New tracks were written on the road, so to speak, and from August through to late December, they had torn through some 30 gigs, grabbing extremely positive reviews in both local and national publications & Not to mention the local airplay for a entire week, and a New York underground magazine practically begging for an interview. Most evidently, the sound they generated in a live situation was partially removed from that of the recordings, and the band were slated on internet forums as being shambolic on occasions. But to those with educated ears, shambolic translated as raw, punky and cocksure. Both sonically and creatively, the band mutate in all directions, and the recordings have become somewhat of an inconvenience in terms of the listeners assumption for the group to replicate it live. Most notably, the recordings are grounded and strong, with a sharp, hedonistic yet cynical depth, that allows mostly only Geordies, in on the sarcastic sneers Ryan so delicately hurls outwards, onwards and upwards! Whilst fundamentally maintaining their focus on fresh and advanced material, the group have been networking nationwide and already have received more than a few healthy offers to perform other than on their doorstep. Maybe they just cant handle the hype!
