The weather, the people the hedon's.
Irish people have this great reputation abroad, I had always thought that it was a bit of a Hollywood creation and that we didn't really deserve it, or that it was because we have always been the underdogs and never colonised anywhere else, instead were on the receiving end. It could be about the music or this fairytale idea of the Irish country side...

Sometimes you realise that it is no one else but the fans you have to satisfy, and when they go to the effort of writing such poetry, you know you are doing something right.
The beautiful words are by Tanya.

If ye put on a rave whats the point if no one dance's

Whats the point in putting on a show if no one see's it

Whats the point in getting up in the morning if there's no one to share the day with

Would ye eat a bit of moldy toast if ye were starving

Would ye drink your own piss if there was no one looking

Ye can do whatever ye want it can be just you involved...

Christmas decorations are up and we have not even passed the middle of November. Where does the time go? We haven't finished our November tour and we are beginning to plan our Summer Season already. When oh when shall we have some peace to catch up on the mountain of administration and preparations that need to go into touring, booking, rehearsals and sometimes just plain old 'me time'. Even...

Streets of Rave

Now with our experience being DJ's on the Street, we know how good it is to take people by surprise and how more people can see the surprise when it is more visual. We are very visual people, when we walk down the street the people take notice. Have you walked past us and bopped you head, given the air a friendly fisting, time to get more involved!
We've been doing...

What a summer. Non Stop. This was written in a brief moment at the end of the first half of our summer touring.

When I tell people I have a 'gig', they automatically assume I'm in a band, but a gig is just the word I put on the actual performance, my 'work' is everything I do, rehearsing, training, performance and the dreaded administration. Of everything, it is only the performance that creates any income to keep the company alive for 12 months, and here at buskings festival we have to learn the new...

R.E.M - Everybody hurts
When the fast paced life of being a celebrity comes crashing down on me like the waves on a windy day in Brittas Bay, when the attention you get being a star makes you feel small and insignificant. I make a choice to shed some of my pain, some of my shame. I turn on Michael Stipe, I turn on R.E.M. I look in the mirror, I cry, I cry big wet, salty tears, the salt...

So like wow, what a weekend. There was a scout camp that didn't know what hit it, we even got a request to keep our pants on, apparently the kids couldn't handle it. Well in my opinion kids these days can handle anything. Don't tell them, or me, what to do, cause well just go ahead and do the opposite.
Youth = rulebreakers. BOOM.
