The Lobby Bar book – available now

A handy stocking filler for the music fan in your life…

The Lobby Bar on No 1 Union Quay was an iconic live music venue in Cork City, which closed its doors in 2005. This book tells the story of the music and people who passed through the Lobby Bar during its seventeen year existence. At one time there were four public houses neighbouring the Lobby, with music becoming a key element linking each venue by the 1990s.

The Lobby Bar – Music Through the Windows of Union Quay, Cork also delves back into the history of the musicians and venues that shaped the musical landscape of Cork. It is a book that celebrates, in words and pictures, the many magic nights of music in the Lobby Bar.

Cork Rock City – Volume 2

Cork Rock City banner

It’s back. After the success of last year’s Cork Rock City compilation, including appearances on the Irish Independent, AU Magazine, 96FM and all over the Irish music blogosphere, Cork Rock City returns with Vol.2.

Preview 7 tracks from the compilations here:

Cork Rock City Vol.2 endeavours to document and showcase definitively the unprecedented level of activity in Cork music, from established hands like Hope is Noise, and [r]evolution of a Sun, to feral new prospects like Slugbait, Fat Actress, Former Monarchs and Agitate the Gravel, from the chaotic “supergrind” of full-time chancers I’ll Eat Your Face to the lunatic fringe of drone, improv and electronica that fosters the brilliant likes of Narwhals, Ellll, and Takeshi and the Kid, and everything inbetween. This city’s breadth and depth of native (and adoptive) musical talent will be explored and showcased like it deserves, and will prove, once again, that this town can easily beat anywhere else in the world, never mind Ireland, to the best tunes.

Cork Rock City Vol.2 releases on Tuesday November 1st at 10am from Drop-d.ie’s brand new Bandcamp page as a completely free download as a full album, or as pick ‘n’ mix single downloads, with a number of extras including video, a guide to Cork music and festivals, and the return of a popular feature of last year’s comp, interchangeable covers, including designs from Cork graphic design heads like Execute and Ricky Sweeney.

The official launch gig will take place at the Crane Lane Theatre, Phoenix Street on Friday night November 4th at 9pm, with Former Monarchs, Slugbait and more to be confirmed and Crane Lane DJs ’til the wee hours.

Win tickets to see Roesy @ Cyprus Avenue

This Wednesday sees Roesy take to the stage at Cyprus Avenue on the Cork city leg of a tour launching his latest album ‘Fable’, released this week. Joining him on stage on the night will be Albert Niland.

Having received massive success with his last album Colour Me Colourful and a huge amount of airplay with the hit single One of the Same, Roesy soundproofed the basement of his Amsterdam apartment where he was living and got to work writing and recording Fable. He mixed the album in New York, where he had previously been picked up by Wardlaw Banks and Downtown Music, currently promoting him in the USA

Fable is arguably Roesy’s most down to earth album to date, reflecting on the obstacles we face at the dawn of a new decade, moving between faith and frustration and covering themes of love, fear and the journey between the two. It’s the work of a musician who is completely comfortable in his ability and continues to remain true to himself, this shines through from beginning to end.

“Roesy has a relaxed, gentle-voiced singing style that evokes shades of Nick Drake without sacrificing its own originality” (The Evening Herald)

“Tender-hearted Irish singer/songwriters are two a cent but Roesy’s the best of the lot” (The RTE Guide)

“…armed with a crystalline pair of vocal chords…” (The Irish Times)

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for the show on Wednesday night, send an email to competitions@corkgigs.com (subject: Roesy) with your name and the answer to the following question:
Where was Fable recorded?

The deadline for entries is midnight on Tuesday April 27th. Winners will be notified by email Wednesday morning.

Boa Morte – release ‘The Dial Waltz’

Cork band Boa Morte release their long awaited second album, The Dial Waltz, on Friday May 21st this year. Beautifully recorded in an analogue studio on 2 inch tape by US producer Daniel Presley (Spain, The Breeders) this collection of songs is arguably even more sparse and evocative than their debut which attracted so many plaudits upon its release eight years ago. To say that this is a long-overdue follow-up is an understatement, but fans of the band will not be disappointed. From the opener The Rail Song to the closing moments of All This We Must Consider the album like its predecessor and “like Smog or Will Oldham…..wraps around you and tilts your head to the stars.” (The Irish Times).

Boa Morte Boa Morte started the noughties in good company, signed to a fledgling record label based in North Carolina with labelmates that included Ryan Adams’ Whiskeytown. Their debut album (Soon it will come time to face the world outside) was recorded in Dublin by Daniel Presley. Following a lack of movement Stateside, the band contacted Shoeshine Records boss Francis MacDonald (drummer with Teenage Fanclub) who (on the advice of Norman Blake) agreed to release the album on this side of the Atlantic. The UK and Irish press were struck by the immediacy and intimacy of the music.

“Occasionally a record comes along that’s so intimate and immediate you want to disconnect the phone, get under the duvet and forget the outside world.”
**** — UNCUT

“By the time you’ve got the full measure of their sombre elegance, the band are confirmed masters of the idiom.”
**** — MOJO

“Like Smog or Will Oldham or any great purveyors of rural lament, it offers warm solace through the perpetual tumbling of the seasons”.
**** — IRISH TIMES

“…the band end up with swaying, melancholic gems that are so much more than the sum of their parts”.

**** — www.drownedinsound.com

**** www.allmusic.com

One writer for Irish music site cluas.com put Boa Morte’s album in his top 5 Irish albums of all time!

John Peel was a fan and twice played the band on his show just before his untimely death.

Between recordings Boa Morte spent some time touring with Teenage Fanclub, playing gigs in Ireland with the likes of Calexico, Howe Gelb & Adrian Crowley and working on the songs for the new album. Following a more than adequate period of rumination the new songs on The Dial Waltz are now ready to face the outside world. The band promote the release of ‘The Dial Waltz’ with gigs in:

Cork (Crane Lane Theatre, Saturday 1st May)

Galway (Róisín Dubh, Saturday 22nd May)

Dublin (Bewleys Café Theatre, Sunday 23rd May).

THE SULTANS OF PING RETURN

A HISTORY LESSON

The Sultans Of Ping FC start in early 1989.Their first demo is recorded in 1990 and includes “Where’s Me Jumper”.They headline Eurorock 1990 as the token local crowd pulling band. Ian Wilson, producer of the Dave Fanning show on RTE, loves the show and offers them their first radio session. In June 1991 the Sultans are again invited to be the closing headline act, this time at the Cork Rocks Festival. Martin Heath of Rhythm King Records catches their set by accident and promptly offers them a deal. The band play their first UKshows in November 1991.

“Where’s Me Jumper” is released as a single in january 1992 and instantly becomes a cult classic. It becomes the biggest selling single of the year in Ireland beating off competition from Bryan Adams’ “Everything I Do”. The Sultans release two further singles that year “Stupid Kid” and “Veronica” which strengthens the band’s profile even more.

Their debut LP “Casual Sex In The Cineplex” comes out in January 1993 and crashes into the top 30 of the UK album charts. The fourth single “U Talk Too Much” also makes the top 30 singles charts. The Sultans spend most of the year touring in the UK, Ireland, Europe and Japan clocking up 150 shows during the year playing in places as diverse as Letterkenny and Hiroshima while still finding time to write their second LP. By this time the band have dropped the FC from their name in a bizarre attempt to be taken seriously. Three singles from the upcoming lp are released -“Teenage Punks”,”Wake Up And Scratch Me” and the classic “Michiko”.All make the top 75 of the UK singles charts.

The second LP “Teenage Drug” is released in 1994 but doesn’t have the same impact as their debut. The band decide to adopt a harder more American influenced sound and recruit Sammy Steiger (ex Golden Horde) to their ranks to beef up the guitar sound.The Sultans continue to tour incessantly to smaller but still enthusiastic audiences. In 1995 the “Of Ping” is quietly dropped from the name and the band are now just known as Sultans.

Third lp “Good Year For Trouble” arrives in 1996 but fails to sell well despite good reviews.The band are dropped by their record label and the writing seems to be on the wall. The Sultans get back to doing what they know best, playing live, and they set off around the UK, Ireland and Europe again. They support The Ramones on their last european tour as well as supporting The Sex Pistols in France.
1997 sees the band still on the road but starting to run out of steam. Their last show takes place in Cork in December 1997 and the night is ruined by aggressive bouncers who spend the evening attacking sultans fans.The band split up after the show.

THE PRESENT

The Sultans “Where’s Me Jumper” is voted 2nd best Irish song of all time by listeners to the Ian Dempsey show on Today Fm in 2004. The songs get played again on the radio and everyone wonders when the band will resurface. 8 years after their last show the Sultans return to the fold with some Irish shows in December 2005. Four original members remain – Niall O’Flaherty on vocals, Pat O’Connell on guitar, Morty McCarthy on drums,S ammy Steiger on lead guitar. They are joined by Ian Olney (ex Power Of Dreams) on bass who replaces Alan MacFeely.

2006 sees The Sultans continue to play sporadic gigs.Cherry Red Records will be releasing a DVD that captures the band playing live in front of their hometown audience in December 2005.

Freakscene RecordsFreakscene is an alternative club night which has been running in Cork City for almost 13 years. This year we set up Freakscene Records and decided our debut release would be a collection of original Christmas songs by Irish artists. We put out the call and the bands answered, at the very last minute of course but they produced some real gems!

The inspiration for this project was two fold, the fact that radio and club DJs are starved of new good Christmas songs every year and secondly that there is only one great Irish Christmas song (well two if you count New Year’s Day and we do ’cause we have included a great New Year’s song of our own!). So we decided to come to the rescue!young pics girl nudeworship ass sexuploadervirgin teen asian analpiss pantievaginas humedasfemale free squirtersvaginas mujeres debbw facials interracial porn spermnaked girls latin hot cubanspring college break fest fuckactors in naked moviesactress masala in moviesadult post movie free gayhomemade movies amateursex amature video/teenie video/teen teen sex sex movieshome movie analanal movie monstermovie anime hentaimalle movie galleries annaasain porn movies
