Peek! An earful of Irish Underground (They're Giving It Away No.12 )

Heres a 11 track compilation given away with the new Analogue Magazine. "Underground" maybe not since the majority of side a is bright bubbly pop. It does contain some wonderful new Irish music and this cd/vinyl is shining a light on a lot of bands/Artist that are unknown even in their hometowns, so maybe it is underground. Dont be put of by the first track, Supernova Scotia and Gran Casino are super and Pascal's Country Sounds regulars Patrick Kelleher and Hunter-Gatherer beef it up.

Side A
The High Life - Ugly Megan
Ballet Shoes - Grand Pocket Orchestra
Capogg - Supernova Scotia
The Last Bottle in the World - Dublin Duck Dispensary
Outskirts - So Cow
Glock Rock - Gran Casino
To Where is Alright - Nouveau Noise

Side B
Coat to Wear - Patrick Kelleher
Radio - Katie Kim
Breaking The Waves - Children Under Hoof
Left For Dead - Hunter-Gatherer
Typers & Trains - Colours Move

Ponytail - Celebrate the Body Electric (It Came From an Angel)

Ponytail Live in Galway Sept08
Ponytail Live in Galway Sept08
Photos taken in Rosin Dubh through toy kaleidoscope.

I ended up getting a 4 hour bus to galway to see Ponytail in the hope that people still dance there and since every gig I've been to in Andrews Lane Theatre have been lame ducks. Alas the skinny jeans have spread west, restricting all movement in the roddy-faced crowd. Ponytail were as expected, skittle high great.
