"First Cuts 'Pick of the Fortnight'"

Jackie Hayden picked the Undecided School's EP Shine Your Shoes as his Pick of the Fortnight in his First Cuts column in Hotpress Magazine (Vol. 33, Issue 06). His review ran as follows:

"... In sharp contrast, the Undecided School take a far more adventurous approach. A trio representing Tipperary, Roscommon and Normandy, they come on like mad country bastards, only with style and decent tunes.
'Shine Your Shoes' brings a Frank Zappaesque approach to mid-fi indie rock. 'Skin and Bones' has great riffing guitars and drums. It skates along so merrily it'll have you dancing on the inside. The bass-driven 'Confetti' is a superb hymn to Bobby Valentino, who claimed he was rock star and sang songs on the radio. Tom Whyte marries oddball subject matter and literate lyrics to tunes that pay their way."

That's the Way (as the Fella Says) [forthcoming single]
Sets in Motion [album due for release soon]



If everyone from Springsteen to Loudon Wainwright III have at one time been hailed as the new Dylan, we hope that an enthusiastic soul somewhere will hail Tom Whyte as the new Moore. That's Christy Moore. Tom Whyte grew up in Aherlow, a rural valley in southern Ireland. He made for Dublin City in his twenties in order to play his music. After stints in rock bands, he returned to solo work. Although Tom has spent more time deliberately immersed in in the work of Dylan, Cave, Guthrie, Young, Waits and others than he has in Moore's, in Ireland Christy Moore enjoys an omnipresence - his spirit is a pervading one. Tom Whyte may well be hailed as the New Moore very soon.
