Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Rob Walsh was writing tunes for around four years and started playing
various bars and clubs around Dublin. He was playing at Electric Picnic
when his friend Joe heard him early one morning singing outside his
tent: “He immediately asked me to work with him and offered to record me
at his studio, Hellfire, a converted farm nestled in the foothills of
the Dublin mountains. I soon became bored performing solo and decided I
needed a change. At Joe’s wedding I did a few numbers with the band and
had a good buzz and we decided that was the way to go.”

We put up an advert for a percussionist on a few sites and within a
couple of weeks Colm Hassett (of Whipping Boy) got in touch saying he
liked the tunes and maybe they should hook up. Colm brought Joey Mc
Gowan who he played with in the Shitty Shit Shits, The Onset and Shadow

They met at Hellfire Studios and played the songs together for the
first time. They all seemed to gel from the get go. But they decided
they needed a second guitarist.“Joe kept talking about some dude Mossy
and how he would be ideal. Months went by without any sign of meeting
him so we came to the conclusion he was a figment of Joe’s imagination.
One day Mossy dropped up to the studio to give a helping hand and lend
his ears in the production process. After hearing the tunes he agreed to
play some gigs and record with the band and Cold Comfort was formed.”
