Biography

Darcy Clay (real name Daniel Bolton) was a New Zealand singer/songwriter, who was made famous in 1997 for his minor hit, Jesus I Was Evil, in which he recorded all instruments in his bedroom on a 4-Track recorder. He was signed to Antenna Records, and possibly was Antenna's first real star. Clay's entire career output consisted of two six track EPs, Jesus I Was Evil and (posthumously) a live EP Songs For Beethoven, recorded on DAT tape when he opened for Blur's 1997 New Zealand performance (including a solo performance of 'English Rose', the Elton John-penned tribute to Princess Diana, who'd died less than two months beforehand). The Two EPs were reissued back to back as an album entitled Darcy Anthology, featuring a bonus CD of QuickTime all Darcy Clay music videos, interview footage and press clippings created before his death, in 1998.
