Describe Your Sound

Country City Punk



Lewis Rice O'Donnell


During 2015, it was Lewis O'Donnell & The Cigars of the Pharaoh and then it was Lewis Rice O'Donnell and The Feast of Snakes, both originally conceived as a backing band for Lew's songs, but we ditched that pretty quick, playing together its become its own entity, bringing a very distinctive sound to the songs, thats much more post-punk, violent & intense than what was intended originally as the backing band.
