Listen to their song 'Punchdrunk'

RubyhorseThey started in 1997 rehearsing in a meat factory on the outskirts of Cork and 4 years later they've signed their second (!) international record deal. Yes, at the end of July 2001 the 5 Boston based Cork guys that make up Rubyhorse signed with Island records. The track featured here 'Punchdrunk' was top of the charts for some time recently and - get this - it features George Harrison playing slide guitar. And that's not a joke. Check out the Irish band 'most-likely-to' that, er, most of Ireland hasn't yet heard of.

Dave Farrell - singer
Owen Fegan - keyboard player
Gordon Ashe - drummer
Joe Philpott - guitarist
