Yep, Its still a pretty similar mix to here comes the night, though less structured than that show. Great show, but I can't stay awake. I always used to listen to the first hour of here comes the night with my radio on a sleep timer so I would basically drift off listening to it. But now its too late for anything other than a serious bout of insomnia or a companion for when you really must-get-to-that-next-level on a videogame Alison Curtis - Yeah, good tunes alright, but it seems dated already. In the few times I listened to it, I felt it was kind of a throwback to the old days of Dave Fanning, very guitar band centric. Not a bad thing in itself neccesarily, but I prefer Donal Dineen, if only they would move the show back to an earlier slot. Speaking of specific-genre shows, anyone remember "The River of Soul" on Today FM with Karl Tsingindos? I think I may have been alone in liking that show, but I loved all that deep soul/gospel stuff. Also, does any national radio station do a decent show dedicated to Dance/Electronic/Club-centric music? I mean not one thats crap, where some idiot Ali G clone DJ spends half the show saying this like "big shout out to all the posse in.." or "respect" and then proceeds to play some crap trance tune. In Belgium, the Dewaele Brothers (better known as 2manyDJs or one half of Soulwax) had their own show where they would play an "as heard on radio soulwax" style mix every week! Lucky Belgians. Why can't we have a show like that? (If one exists already, let me know!)

Apollo Creed, isnt that the guy from the Rocky films? Great name for a band. Do they have a website or Ep? I think that with any new band trying to make a name for themselves. They need three things: 1} An up to date decent website 2} An Ep to have a solid recording 3} Plenty of gigs lined up And maybe a few reviews to help them along. Maybe Cluas could start up a section just for upcoming/new bands/artists so they get more recogintion as alot of new bands are releasing singles lately. Just a suggestion.

Gar I think that's a great idea , as I've often checked cluas to see if there were any upcoming / new bands / artists reviewd and although there is a few there could be a lot more. I for one would certainly put some time into reviewing if reviewers were needed ! K

These bands could start by giving us free CDs to review? That said, a review of a band I've never heard is not going to make me buy a CD, but hearing them is. Cluas does have an MP3 section for new bands, I haven't seen any new material there in ages!

If you want to check out CH-1 with some live tracks from a very recent gig in The Hub, go to www.channelonesound.com/media.htm

Streaming audio? Would it kill ya to stick up a downloadable MP3? I can understand bands not wanting to "give away" their music, but consider this: A streaming audio track is unlikely to get a second listen and therefore unlikely to grow on you if it doesn't make an immediate impression, which I have to say didn't happen listening to the first track at low volume through tinny work PC speakers. It also alienates people who don't have broadband (I do, both at home and at work). Lots of signed bands give away MP3s, and I have bought records by these bands. Check out Epitonic.com for example. I think one dowloadable MP3 on a site that people actually visit like Cluas or Epitonic can have more impact than an entire streaming album on the bands site.

This might be viewed as a bit OTT but feck it we have no shame, if anyone wants a free live Lucera CD send a mail to Luceramail@yahoo.co.uk or lucera@cluas.com, we'll send you a short "homemade" recording from Dorans, not a release quality recording, theres a proper demo being made, but we'd love a bit of feedback that didnt come from mates or people we half know. Too much of that is worse than judging your own material while consuming vast amounts of coke. we want the (horrible) truth! Cheers,

Thats exactly the point I was trying to make. Alot of artists just forget about their websites and never update them eg. Declan O'Rourke. They should maybe offer an option to stream certain songs that they want to keep safe but defintely put some songs up for download. Visting sites of new bands is how I discover alot of them. Its very lazy on their behalf if they don't have a site that has up to date gig listings, mp3s, images, bio and contact address. If a band doesn't have these on their site then why would anyone try harder to find out about them. But yeah being able to download mp3s is defo way forward especially with more and more people buying ipods.

Have to add in Stellaband, as they were very impressive in the Sugar Club. Going to go see Stoneocean in Dorans next week and see just how good they are.

For up and coming bands check out the C.U. Records stable of artists: Scribble - www.scribbletheband.com Niall Connolly - www.niallconnolly.com Elephant - www.elephantinthemoon.com All of these are well worth checking out and are working hard at it. There are MP3s on all the sites for download for anyone interested. BW

Howdy, I notice that there are a number of bands that I don't get to see live and have no way of hearing their stuff because I can't really listen to streams at work or because they just have nothing to listen to. It is annoying. If Cluas could add more artists to their MP3 section that might help. I know that there are some bands that just can't afford to host their MP3s on their site (or even build a proper site). This could give them a leg up. I am guessing that Cluas would have to pay for this though so it may not be feasible. Anyway, please feel free to download Gardening from www.dwightworld.com/links and say what you want about it - here or anywhere else for that matter. If you like it, and since it is Friday and I am feeling pretty good, drop me an email between now and Monday and I'll post you out a copy of the EP free gratis. Cheers, Stephen.

It would also be handy if they could seperate the artists in the mp3 section into categories. It just be easier to find bands that you'd be interested in. Do you have a website Lucera that we can listen to your bands music?

Music has nothing to do with either "respect" or "brilliance"; its an independent artform unreliant on Bono. The Mouse are a pretty funky live band, but the main problem with the Dublin live or otherwise scene is that people assume that listening to music makes them music fans. Can anyone justify this outrageous claim? I thought not. Lately there's been a lot of buzz about the re-released Eno albums from the 70s, and rightly so. But it's disturbing that no one would actually listen to them until MOJO/Q talked them up. No matter how "liberated" Dublin musicians think they are, the chances are that they are bored little people regurgitating that which they label "deep". Only two bands I have heard have the potential to fly above this rot: The Immediate and The Shakes. Let's hope they have the presence of mind to give Ireland a decent rock 'n' roll band for the first time.
