Hi, we hail from Plymouth and started out earning our cider money from busking; hitchhiking all around the country with little more than an acoustic guitar....... we have since upgraded our gear somewhat!! We now perform with a 2000 watt PA, full lighting rig, special effects and staging, packing out pubs, clubs and festivals all over the South West, UK.
OPIUM are particularly excited about our new project. "we are currently working on producing our own original material and can't wait to get our tunes out there for people to hear"
Opium are in the process of recording a new album but for the mean time you can check out some of our old demo songs by clicking on the Music page.
DOMINIE. A colourful and stylised vocalist with a strong stage presence. She adds her own sassy interpretations to the covers they perform. "Live gigs is where it's at for me, I love to perform for an audience - I think of it as putting on a show rather than just another gig!"
STEVE FLY. The axeman of the show, an accomplished musician on electric guitar he also writes and produces their own unique backing tracks. He has appeared alongside artists as diverse as Muse, Chicken Shack,and the Vibrators!!! He has also played as a session guitarist for Paddy Stratton (Levellers song writer).
Together we are OPIUM - a professional, dynamic and exciting band- we don't like to use the term 'duo', although there are two of us, we think of ourselves as a band and certainly try to perform with all the passion and energy of a full four piece!
