We were joined last Thursday by Halves, who played at The Electric Picnic last Sunday. Apologies for not getting this mp3 up sooner – today is the first time I’ve felt semi-human again after the antics of Stradbally.
I heard about Halves through a guest post on Nialler9 by Cormac, and promptly got in touch with them to get my paws on a bear-encrusted EP. It is one of the loveliestly (?) packaged cd, with a ribbon and everything. And it sounds great too. From Ireland, they remind me of Dry County and Channel One, with a pinch of Sigur Ros.
Brian, Ellis, Dave and Tim came on the show and not only told us about bears, but we also listened through to the recorded versions of two tracks and they treated us to a live track as well.
We also spoke to Siobhan from Magical Girl Promotions about the gig in the Boom Boom Room tonight. Scream Club, all the way from the US, will be supported by Ophelia, Jenny and the Deadites and White Noise. It’s €10 in and promises to be a great night, so head down there if you’ve recovered from the Picnic.
Also on this show we heard The Dream of Win and Regine from Final Fintasy, Rhythm and Purpose from Channel One, Super Noise from White Noise and Super Extra Bonus Party, and Nialler9 recommeded Montreal -40C from Malajube.
Here it all is for your downloading pleasure, enjoy!
