Seriously, It's almost turning into an obsession. I've been mainlining their music straight into my brain stem through iPod, home stereo and in the car. I don't know what it is but their music seems endlessly replayable, I never get sick of it...They have 3 albums and 1 EP and the quality across the all 4 is remarkable, very dark yet incredibly atmospheric..saw them in the Tripod back in April and the visuals/Music combination was pretty mindblowing. I've a weakness for post-rock/instrumental/ambient, it's all I really llisten to..Mogwai, Godspeed, Mono,Slint, Sigur..the usual, but I never thought I would discover an Irish band that could be the equal of those bands (praise indeed)...they did something with Fearghal McKee of Whipping Boy (probably the last Irish band I was truly blown away by) but I can't it find it anywhere..did they record material together or was it just a gig? Anyone else develop a fixation on a band's music whereas you rarely listen to anything else? It's probably not healthy, to be honest!
The song they did with Feargal was called "What you wanna start" - a great song, a kind of poppy version of the Whipping Boy. It used to be available as a free download from his web page, but the page seems to have dissapeared - as has Feargal himself. Not surprising after his god-awful solo drunken appearances last year, not to mention the atrocious re-union gigs with W.Boy.
