Dublin terror merchants The Things, since their creation in 2002 have become a national treasure in the live situations. Notorious in their homeland the band have also touted their sleazy garage rock n roll in The UK, Germany and Spain as well as making an appearance at the SXSW music festival in Austin Texas followed by a short east coast tour in the US. No stranger to high profile supports either, The Things have scared and delighted audiences before the likes of The Warlocks, The Hives, The Fall, Peaches, Arctic Monkeys, Baby Shambles, Thin Lizzy and The Damned.

The frenzied live antics of deviant front man Neilo Thing set this band apart from any other, all tarted up in make up and high heels he stalks the stage like a predator while his uber-solid henchmen trash out their songs of sex, violence and their hatred and mistrust of normality.

The Things self produced debut offering, Psycho Sound EP [Big Neck 2005] is not only a fine example of their sonic prowess but a testament to their DIY, ’no compromises’ was of operating. Expect this band to do bad bad things to you very very soon.
