Radio X session and interview

Interview0 Comments

The band records a three-tracks live session for Radio X [Link to Session], including LunaticSupernatural, You Opened Up My Heart, and I Saw A Ghost. In an interview, Aaron talks to Kennedy about the band’s progress.

We’ve got a strong commitment to memorable melodies…We’re ‘all killer no filler’…I spent a lot of time when we first started out, trying to sound more like everybody else, trying to sound more indy. But I’ve got a reasonable range and as I’ve developed and become more confident in what I’m doing it’s become more honest and truthful. It seems to be working.

There’s Only One Conor McGregor


Mick Konstantin releases a song about McGregor’s upcoming fight with Mayweather.

Mayweather, your old and your small
And the truth is that you’ll do feck all
Cos precision beats power and timing beats speed
“Why have you got a school bag Floyd you can’t even read”

Well he dresses to kill, buys lamborghinis at will
Can get inside your head like he was Dr. Phil
And if you call him out, have a good reason why
Or he’ll turn around and say who the f**k is that guy

And on the 26th of August we’re taking over Vegas
The Irish invasion you can’t mistake us
Singing songs day and night til our voices are sore
Cos when one of us goes, we all go to war!!

We all go to work just like you. We all have day jobs just like you. We don’t have anyone who’s giving us loads of money. So the fact that you are all coming out to spend money on us. Everything you spend comes straight back into this band. Thank you very much. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Sound Check


The band appear on The Sound Check, playing I Saw A Ghost, Forever In Your Debt. Aaron:

I Saw A Ghost came in a dark morning. As you can image by the lyrics it’s quite a sombre track…what I try to do in the lyrics is write stuff that people are feeling, but can’t articulate.
