Rarely Seen Above Ground...
Tuesday, February 19, 2008
Rarely Seen Above Ground, the electronica project of Kilkenny drummer Jeremy Hickey, appeared at La Flèche d'Or in Paris on 16 February.
Unfortunately, your CLUAS Foreign Correspondent (Paris) wasn't there, so we can't bring you a review or any news of how the show went. Please excuse your humble F.C.(P.) for this lapse in our service. If you were there, let us know how the show went.
The least we can do to make amends is to plug Hickey's next Irish appearance. Rarely Seen Above Ground will be on the Phantom 105.2 stage at the Childline Rocks show at the Academy (formerly Spirit, amongst other names) on 28 February.
We understand that RSAG's live show is quite special - Hickey sits in the centre of a huge drum-kit, singing as he plays. Behind him are video projections of him playing the other instruments you can hear in the live mix. You can see for yourself at the Childline Rocks gig.
Hickey, former drummer with Kilkenny band Blue Ghost, released an album in 2006 and you can hear some tracks on the RSAG MySpace page. Here's a taster of his live show, filmed at the Dinner's Ready festival last year.
