The best kept secret in music

Feeling a bit camera shy


We probably like music as much as you do.Nothing else in life seems to do it.In one guise or another this band has been on the go for nearly five is the tendency, however, things got in the way.But nothing bad can happen to a writer, as the saying goes, and all those interruptions of life have been experienced and put into our music.the long illness of our bassist, Niall Fallon, the amazing ability of our singer Padraic Joyce to injure himself even when locked in a room in which all the furniture is bolted down, our drummer, Guillaume's fondness for all things combustible, and the ongoing adventures of Fiachra and Niall, our own superheroes and multi insrumentalists, all tales that are told in the band's particular type of story telling music.

This is a type of singing and performing that is oft called folk music, but the influences of this band range far and wide, from traditional Irish music through artists like Johnny Cash, The Waterboys ,and The Clash to the harmonic works of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Our first ep, The Death Of An Irish Gentleman, brought these musical elements together to tell the story of a close friend of ours who had recently left us.The tunes on this ep are about hope found in strange places during the times that life shits on us.

We toured the country, to promote the ep, the highlight being a performance on TG4's Ardan, even though on the night we were mistaken for hard line Sinn Feiners, as we were wearing green armbands[a bad and unfashionable habit, with no political undertones] on the night of the local Ard-Fheis.When all was sorted, a great show was followed by "the best after party show RTE has seen in many a year"

Other gigs of late have included support slots with Duke Special, The Thrills, Emma Sproule and The Marshalls, along with frequent sessions with Sharon Shannon, Declan O' Rourke, Arty Glynn and others at our local, O' Connor's of Salthill.We'll play with anyone.We probably like music as much as you do.
