CLUAS Writers: profile of Ken Fallon

Despite entering this world with the terrible handicap of being born with a pumpkin for a head, Ken Fallon has gone on to become the undisputed Irish authority on quantum physics and multiverse theory. Second only to Stephen Hawking, Fallon is currently working on an equation that, if successful, will bring about the instantaneous death of Derek Mooney and all other RTE television personalities while at the same time generating free beer for the entire population of the world. Fallon is doing this, along with writing pretentious reviews for Cluas, while still holding down a totally non-music related job in the financial services sector in Dublin.
