Musically-speaking, this life thing got off to a good start for Eoghan with him growing up in a 1970s Dublin home where the music of Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon and others were in constant rotation.
But when the pre-teen years rolled around - dear, dear - it really started to fall apart at the seams (first album bought? Elton John's "Too Low for Zero; First concert? Frankie Goes to Hollywood in the RDS Simmonscourt). The teenage years, arguably, saw a incremental improvement in affairs as a life-long, er, infatuation with up and coming local band U2 took root.
However ten or so years later some precocious notions about dabbling in music journalism came to the fore. Needless to say, his initial attempts were flatly rejected by all publications to whom they were submitted. He soon realised the only way he was ever going to get his, er, insights published was to publish them himself. And therein this new internet thing came in handy as it allowed him - in March 1999 - to set up a vanity website (eoghan.com, now no longer in existence) upon which his articles were unleashed on the unfortunate and unsuspecting public.
Soon however a number of friends chose to submit articles they had written for addition to the eoghan.com website. This led in May 1999 to Eoghan deciding to change the name of his vanity publication platform to www.CLUAS.com. Other writers continued to be attracted to the website and to offer it their writings and reflections on music. And it is they who - to this day - keep the increasingly large CLUAS ship somehow afloat.
