Meaty music. So my old band have a new EP out. We Tried, which is a better song than The Script’s We Cry, is the lead “single” from it. It sounds massive. As briefly explained in this introductory tumblr post, … Continue reading
That was then… And this is now… [disclaimer - "Cruel" is a potential video and song of the year candidate, it will lodge itself in your consciousness] So I talked before about my favourite ever show – Sufjan Stevens in … Continue reading
It has been 360 days since I was in Ireland. And in 3 days time I shall return! A 16 day sojourn, until Sunday July 24th. I shall do my bit to live up to the national stereotype by taking … Continue reading

A sad day for all spectacle wearers. So today I arrived into work to read the news that Garret Fitzgerald, Ireland’s 7th Taoiseach, had died. Reports surfaced two weeks that he was gravely ill, but the news will still have … Continue reading
Irish-ish 5 Things to not miss about St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin…
Strike a pose… Crazy Google Street View camera speeds up the road so I grab my dear mother and tell her to smile for the internet. If we could have signed an anti-faceblur waiver we would have.
On a sunlit stage… Villagers played here in Toronto on Monday night in the lovely Drake Hotel‘s basement venue for the paltry sum of $10 (€8). I only realised before the show that I hadn’t been to a proper paid … Continue reading
Give the man a hand. My very good friend and former band-mate Colin Boylan, now magicly dubbed “Sunburnt Jets”, makes his live debut this Friday at the currently controversy-laden Crawdaddy. The gig is as opening act for Kill Krinkle Club‘s … Continue reading
Give the band a hand. So Bouts are playing Twisted Pepper as part of Hard Working Class Heroes on Saturday October 9th at 9.10pm. Baring a disaster or a miracle it will be their live debut.
