Villagers

18 09 2008

I, like many sensible souls, was so disappointed when Irish band The Immediate broke up last year. They were a cut above the rest and In Towers And Clouds remains a landmark Irish record. So I’m delighted to see Conor O Brien of Immediate fame has a new band called Villagers. The two songs on the myspace are really nice especially ‘The Meaning Of The Ritual’. Fingers crossed there is lots more to come.

Thought of the day: why do people always say “bumped up” when talking about somebody getting upgraded on an airplane?

9 09 2008

Ah yesh yesh yall,

We started properly rehearsing for live shows last night. The lineup is pretty much as you were: MJ, Ex, G bone, Twiddler with Frankadelic filling in from time to time. We’re out in a space near the Phoenix Park and it’s rough and ready but good for what we need. It’s the same space G bone’s other outfit Connect 4 Orchestra get busy. We’ll be moving to another space before long cos apparently the lease is up soon. Speaking of live dates, here are a few we are doing thus far (more TBA):
