These guys are awful...what is wrong with people?? ham sandwich and this crowd are the best we have to offer???
Whether you're into their music or not, you cant doubt they are two bands that are actually doing things and getting places at the mo - compared to a hoard of other Irish bands that have been around for the same time or even longer.....
Well said - I don't really know Ham Sandwich, but FLA definitely have more than national appeal. They're the first Irish band in a long, long time that have had even a modicom of success outside Ireland... and that's purely on the back of the release of 1 EP.
You don't hear the likes of Delorentos, Future Kings of Spain, Blizzards, Flaws etc etc doing live sessions on BBC radio? And why's that.. same reason most Irish bands start out & end up never gaining international success.. their local bands with purely local appeal.
Like 'em or not, FLA have a very bright future & a style of music & presentation that'll catch on in a hell of a lot more countries.
