Listen to their song 'Truth or Consequence'

Modesty are a 5-piece -a s yet unsigned - group from Dublin doing the gig-around-the-capital thing and unleashing their own individual brand of guitar-based music on the unsuspecting populous. They've been rehearsing/gigging for over a year now and have pieced together a veritable tour de force of a catalogue of 40 original songs.

ModestyThe band is a re-forming of three of the members of Modesty Blaze - a pop-rock outfit on the Dublin scene of the mid-90s (Paul, Mark & Fergal) with the addition of Declan on vocals and Gary on guitars. The end result is harder, louder and well, listen to the demo!

Already the band have released a 13-song demo cd and their website,  has been set up with the aim of keeping punters in the picture with news and reviews of the band and assorted other topics such as the influence of Kurt Loder on Spaghetti Westerns. See the website for details of gigs.

Modesty are:

Dec Mulligan: vocals
Mark Whelan: drums, percussion
Paul Mulligan: guitars, keyboards, backing vocals
Fergal Dunne: bass guitar
Gary Branigan: guitars, backing vocals
