"Jackie Hayden"

"Vasco Junior are indie Rockers at Heart.In "Fall" They have a very fine Track That links echoes of early Jaggeresque vocals to a Razorlight Sound Bed"- - Hotpress


"Despised is full of energy with great vocals and a drummer working overtime"- - Hotpress

"Shilpa Ganatra"

"Now that the last crop of new acts like dark room notes and grand pocket orchestra have firmly established themselves on the scene,there's room for a new slew.Along with the likes of New Amusement,Vasco Junior are one of those in the "Next Big Thing" Pile.Their brand of Spritely Indie Rock is amazingly tight for such an embryonic group,as proved by current single "Fall" -voted best song in murphy's live competition.The track gets its proper release this week.Do they have what it takes to become Irelands next big Thing?Head down to Crawdaddy and make your mind up" - The Star

Originally formed on an informal basis as “The Dots” the band have evolved through the addition of two new members to become the solid 5-piece “Vasco Junior.”
They describe themselves as a hard working, no nonsense indie rock band.

Musically the band has been described as “peddling urgent rock stomps alongside pleasant pop swoons and the odd devilish groove.” With songs that concern politics, love, history, vodka and revenge coupled with the toe tapping and infectious tunes.

Having gigged substantially around Dublin City to an ever-increasing audience of enthusiastic supporters, ”Vasco Junior’s” appeal and talent has not gone unnoticed.

The band have already earned the title “Pick of the fortnight” from Jackie Hayden in his “Garageland” column in Hot Press, “Demo of the week” on Phantom FM’s Icon Show with Aidan Lynch and the track “Fall” was shortlisted from thousands for Murphys live best song which it subsequently won, following on from this the track was released and reached 15 in the National Irish charts; a second single "Despised" was also released in 2008 and also managed to enter the Irish top 40 chart. These accolades have been further supported by live performances on FM104’s Open Mic with Ruairi Carroll, “That’s Entertainment” on Dublin CityFM103.2, Access All Areas with Edel Caffery on Phantom FM, while also receiving regular air play on Spin FM, FM104, Dublin City 103.2FM,Phantom, 95Limerick, Beat FM, KFM.
On an international perspective the band have also received airplay on radio stations in Liverpool, Manchester and L.A.

Currently the band are putting the finishing touches to their debut album to be released on May 1st 2009, with the release party being a free entry gig in the village on wexford street, Dubin and a tour of Ireland planned for the release week.
