Radio X session and interview
The band records a three-tracks live session for Radio X [Link to Session], including Lunatic, Supernatural, 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!!
