“Temple of Bon Matin was begun around 1991 by drummer/singer Ed Wilcox and keyboardist John Mulvaney, after the collapse of Wilcox’ first band The Tomahawk Kids (named in tribute to his hero, the sensational Alex Harvey – although, being 1990, they sounded more like Guadacanal Diary). Hoping to build a vehicle to contain their diverse loves of psychadelia, swing, punk and free jazz, and a welcoming opportunity for guest musicians to contribute anything from a single performance to staying a decade. Temple of Bon Matin began playing a Victor Borge, David Allen, Canterbury colored mix of originals and swing covers at beatnik coffee houses, hardcore punk clubs and streetcorners in the Philadelphia area. ” For extended bio, visit their myspace.
