Catchin' Myself On (2005) - EP


Feeling a bit camera shy


Chadsko are one of the top original unsigned bands in Ireland growing from strength to strength since February 2005. They are a 6-piece band from Derry that create sweet catchy funky toe-tapping acoustic sounds that just make you want to shout, YEAH!

They have evolved from being an ordinary pub band into a fully fledged, professional and polished musical act, capable of impressing any audience and encouraging any age group to “swing, sing and do the Chadsko thing”.

Since reaching the all-Ireland final of the Global Battle of the Bands contest in November 2005, Chadsko have proved beyond a shadow of doubt that they can hold their own when performing alongside the greatest unsigned bands in Ireland. Such is their widespread popularity in the city of Derry, it’s no wonder everyone in the audience seems to know all the lyrics and sings along to every song.

Chadsko were awarded first place at the Ballymena Battle of the Bands in February 2006, and were then asked to play at the prestigious ‘Northern Ireland : Next Generation’ Festival in London. During the summer of 2006 the boys then played at Glasgowbury Festival and toured around the UK and Ireland.

Their debut EP “Catchin’ Myself On” was recorded, mixed and mastered by the band themselves, and features trumpet player Linley Hamilton (who has worked with The Commitments, Van Morrison and Paul Brady). The title track from the EP was chosen to be included in a compilation CD, featuring Northern Ireland’s best bands in May 2006.

Chadsko wow audiences wherever they go with an unbelievable live show and amazing sound. Prepare to meet your new favourite band!
