its been an exciting time for the irish music scene with all the most promising acts signed up to labels, small and large over the last year. but as the bands start to release the albums and begin to make their way into the gigging world one by one they seem to be falling on the early hurdles.
blizards - talented, but very very poppy. will sell bloody loads with people outside dublin, but whats the point in another shallow pop act?
director - first single was great, new single is arse. getting better live, though. if the single for the album is that poor what chance the album?
humanzi - poor album, huge deal. seems like they made it too early in their development.. could stifle them? great passion.
immediate - good but patchy album, but nothing to rival the better alternative bands... second album not optioned by their label..
marshalls - whats the delay on the album? wasn't it recorded last year?
the question is, is it reasonable to want an irish band to do well? can the little scene here produce something to rival any of the bigger acts?
hopefully all these acts get better and come through. your opinions greatly appriciated.
