Patrick Kelleher - Coat To Wear (Duffy's Ditties No.12)

As the tag says Ethereal Dream Pop from Patrick Kelleher
accompanied by wonderful super 8 video. Coat To Wear
bounces around the stereo like a malevolence spawn of
Shockheaded Peters and Kate Bush. Taken from his excellent
6 track EP "You Look Cold". With only 75 numbered hand
cut and hand glued cdr made they are sure to be snapped
up quickly. Available from Road Records or though his
myspace, I think for the pauperly price of €5. Or
alternatively you can pick it up if you catch him playing a
stripped down show tomorrow night with his backing band
"The Wet Dreams" at The Bernard Shaws on Richmond St.
Portobello, where he will be unleashing new material or
Supporting God Is An Astronaut in a brand spanking new
theatre in Greystone on Saturday the 7th of June.

Hunter - Gatherer - I Dreamed I Was A Footstep In The Trail Of A Murderer (Virtual 7" No.3)

Two tracks from fuzzed up electronic mistro mystery man. He makes fairly
"moody broody" electronic music which is not a mile miles away from
Trentemoller and Plaid. This is but a brief glimispe into whats to
come from Hunter - Gatherer canon. If he sustains the quality,
a full lp is set to be an interesting prospect.

Eurovision 2008

Threatening Europe with the No vote to the Lisbon Treaty
was a was good idea, but no joy. Ireland's entry is/was
a Turkey, I'm not joking and we didn't get into the final.
For some reason I thought Dustin was a shoe in but it
wasn't to be. So all my hope and dreams now rest in the
hands of Sebastien Tellier.

Cover photo taken somewhere in Cavan.
So the summer is finally here. To celebrate my new found love of drinking

and couple of other things in between.

favourite Cluster album 'Sowiesoso' from 1976.

Scarlett Johansson - "Fannin' Street" & "Song For Jo" (Duffy's Ditties No. 8 & No.9)

As yr one says "Fuck all you hates". Miss Johansson new album
is pretty great. Ok it's got a couple of well ropey songs on it.
The title track "Anywhere I Lay My Head" being the worse
of the bunch and it was the first to be leaked for some reason.
But the majority of the tracks are great, two of which are
top notch.One, being the only song that's not a Waits Cover
"Song For Jo" is one of the best song on here. Johansson co-wrote
it with TV On The Radio's David Andrew Sitek, the album's
producer. It sounds like a long lost Red House Painters track.
The other being Johansson's cover of "Fannin' Street" which is
just as spell bounding with David Bowie adding backing yells to
the proceedings. Originally "Fannin' Street" reared its head on
Waits "Orphans" release, the 3cd rarities album that came out
last year. With the help of her talented friends Johansson has
made an album thats much better than it should ever be.

Brian Eno & David Byrne - Mea Culpa (Duffy's Ditties No.6 )

Looks like a reunion is on the card for a group that sounds as fresh
as they did when their only album together came out in 81, Fuck
Buttons were certainly taking notes. Great video done by Bruce
Conner, the same artist who did the Mongoloid Video for Devo.
