Bio

ynchburg Mob, aka. LBM, was formed in the Summer of 2007 when classmates Ian Plunkett and Paul Stokes agreed to form a band. Later that year Paul asked Darragh Lynch, a former classmate who performed with Paul in their secondary school talent show, to join the band and Lynch agreed. With Ian on vocals and guitar, Paul on drums and Darragh on guitar and keys, songwriting started in 2008. It took one full year to finally find the right bassist, after auditioning 3. Brian Diskin joined LBM in late 2008 with the band's first gig already booked. He fitted in immediately. The band started gigging in February 2009, playing a small set to a crowd of close friends in Temple Bar's Think Tank venue. Over the next 4 months LBM gigged frequently in Dublin, showcasing their original material, which always seemed to be evolving. The band benefited from the assistance of 2 managers in this period, resulting in the success of 2 gigs in Eamonn Doran's, Temple Bar, where LBM played to audiences of 200 people on each occasion, raising 2,000euro for the Suas Charity and funding the recording of their first demo. The lads appeared on Balcony TV before recording 3 songs with K Recording. Their first CD, with the tracks "Revolutionise", "Edgartown" and "The Importance of Remaining Earnest" capture the alternative rock sound that LBM creates. Later that year they went on to become DCU Battle of the Band winners. They also were successful in passing 2 heats to become finalists in the well-known King Kong Klub bands competition, held in The Village in Dublin. Appearances on radio also took place, where the band would play their demo and advertise the event to launch the CD. Real Radio fm, Dublin City fm, Near fm and UCD's Belfield fm, all played host to the band. Going into 2010, the lads added more songs to their set, such as "El Mar" and "Coattails."Another appearance on Balcony TV also captured a marked difference in the overall impression of LBM. A successful CD launch in The Village marked a huge change in the prospects of the band as a serious rock outfit. It was here that the band's musical style and image became effectively identifiable. After a break in the summer of 2010, LBM focused closely on writing more songs, with noticeable influences from the likes of The National, Interpol, Silversun Pickups and Pearl Jam. Hitting the ground running, the band recently appeared on Nova Fm for an interview, performing in studio and songs from their EP. LBM became the recommended band of the week.
Keep an eye on their events pages on myspace and facebook, they have a busy year of gigging and recording ahead of them.
