Tom Dalzell/Lives As Omens cut his teeth as a singer/synth player as a member of various post punk bands in and around Edinburgh in the 1980s. He’s also played saxophone in a diverse range of bands, from 1950s R&B, jazz and traditional fusion.
Performing as Lives As Omens since 2010 (and occasionally jazzhandstemazepamman), Chymical Garden of Delights is his debut solo album. It is a collection of stories, some ancient, some more recent, some obvious and some less obvious. They were devised and recorded between 2010 and 2021.
