    Here here I agree it is a sad end for a gifted band who had many great songs(braun audio one to name but one) and gave us some memorable gigs and night`s to remember.Sorry to hear it and wish you all the best in the future with any projects you take on.

    im totally shocked and saddened at the news that hi.rise have split. first of all i hope everyong in the band is ok? whatever the reasons are for the split im sure they are good ones. but its a damn pity nevertheless... the first time i seen hi.rise was at a charity gig in the tbmc in 1999 which anto and andrew helped organised, it was a benefit gig for a friend of theirs who had died whilst away in australia...there was something like 50 acts playing on the night including my own band who were then called mirrorball (what a s**te name)...i had heard a lot about the band at that point and most of it had been good but it was only when i seen for myself the sheer power of hi.rise, and how they were so different than almost every other group trading out of dublin that i realised they were something f**king special. since then i have looked up to them as a band that know how to get things done. they have always had their own look , their own sound and their own approach to things. seeing them play both witnnesses were two very proud moments for me and other friends of mine that are also in bands..it was a great feeling to see a band that would never pretend to be better than anyone else actually up there playing one of europes biggest festivals alongside their and our favourite bands. its just a pain in the b****x that they are no more basically..sorry to harp on. but let me reiterate..i hope that everything is ok with the individual members and that we shall see them again in other projects...id work with any and every one of them given the chance. good luck - SM

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Hillbilly believe it or not I hadn't posted this message for fishing for compliments I wanted to tell some of the posters here cos they've come to our gigs and supported us over the last 7 years and that does actually mean something to me, and people had been asking why we weren't playing. You've obviously never lost anything important to you, you're lucky.

    Dromed, I haven't read a single post from hillbilly that depicts anyone with an IQ that even makes double figures, you shouldn't dignify that crap with a response. Anyway, hope all goes well and while this may be a premature question, do you have anything in the pipeline? Are you going to try & put another band together or anything? Even solo perhaps? Gemma Hayes could use a good replacement & Nina Hynes could use a good successor.... Q2
