Feeling a bit camera shy


FRED are the most exciting band to come out of Ireland in along time.
The 5 piece from Cork City have exploded onto the Irish music scene and
now look set to launch their unique brand of high-energy odd-rock on
the rest of the planet.

“Like Sly & The Family Stone in a swordfight with the Flaming Lips,
refereed by Brian Wilson” according to national newspaper The Irish
Post, FRED take everything that is good about music and put it in one
giant sexy-ass package. Imagine your favourite song, now imagine your
favourite song cooking you dinner. That’s how good FRED are.

Releasing their magnificently glorious album ‘Making Music So You Don’t
Have To’, to a sold out Opera House, the record has since brought
feelings of tenderness and unbridled joy to all that have heard it,
with some fans going so far as to say that their souls burst on
listening. How can one band make so many feel this way? By bulldozing
all musical boundaries that lay in their path.

From being mere cult heroes in their native city one year ago, they
have gone on to appear on every radio station, TV channel and stage in
the country. From being used as theme music on national radio and TV
shows (and beyond to the world famous BBC studios) enlisting droves in
the FRED army everywhere they go………..

In the last year alone, they played to over 20,000 people at their own
shows, excluding major festival appearances. This is the beginning of
something special.

The national press have delivered their verdict:
“Musical Mavericks” Hot Press
“Best Album Of The Year” The Village
“Fecund and Feckless” The Irish Times
“Unbelievably Brilliant” The Irish Examiner
