'Fairweather Friend'

GramophoneFresh from recording their debut album in Munich, Gramophone have returned to their native stomping ground (uh, that'll be Ireland) to showcase their material. Their music - although guitar-rock - comes complete with generous strains of pop, country and soul. During their brief sojourn on the continent, the band played a number of high-profile gigs, including sets at the World Music Awards celebrations, the Montreaux Jazz festival and at the Jordan team party during the Monaco Grand Prix. The track featured here - 'Fair weather friend' - is the first single to be taken from the band's forthcoming debut album. Check it out. Gramophone's debut album is scheduled for release in February 2001. Lookout for Gramophone at a venue near you in the lead up to its release.
