Undying Heads are Frank Ryder and Sam Wilkinson, a duo playing an eclectic mix of original nu-folk music. Frank is a singer songwriter from Dublin, Ireland who plays guitar and mandola. Frank says "I remember being fourteen years old and having a copy of a Lynyrd Skynyrd album, and seeing this gang of long haired's singing about whiskey, drugs, rock 'n' roll and life on the road. For me growing up in suburban Dublin that was a glimpse of something outside. It excited me." In the early 1990s Frank (then going by the guise of Frank X. Hibbet) was part of the band Far Canals, based in Galway, Ireland. They released two albums and one EP with Hunter S. Records. The bands anarchic, anti-establishment ethos was reflected in many of their songs which railed against the police, drug laws, organised religion and political corruption. Influenced by punk and blues, the Far Canals combined unusual guitar arrangements and distortion pedals to produce a highly distinctive sound.
