I'm looking for a couple of bands who'd be into playing for 30 minutes at a community festival type situation. During the day. Outside. I wanted to get local original young bands but sadly that's proving trickier than I thought. So I'm throwing it out there to the thumped community. I'll...
Is there a thread for 2018? Probably not.
Anyway I just listened to the Point Of Everything Podcast where they talked about this year's 10 albums. Obvs I haven't heard any of them (sorry delos) but it was a good show. They hyped up Kojaque and his album Deli Daydreams. My boys like rap so we...
I've just put LTNT2 up on bandcamp. It's a sort of follow up to my Like There's No Tomorrow album I did way back. LTNT2 is just a two song "single". Two songs that weren't going to make it to the proper band, The Middle Ages. Does that mean they're no good? Maybe. But they can't all be...
A rare gig from both bands. The Middle Ages with Glimmermen. Last seen together at a midnight gig in Whelan's where absolutely nobody we knew turned up. Well everyone lost out that night. The Middle Ages busted out a special midnight cover of Radar Love. That's right, Radar Fucking Love. Well...
Yay, new music from The Middle Ages, that's regular posters @Anthony and @chris d with two other dudes.

New single Not Not / Titanic out tonight after we do a (fuck) facebook live performance at 10pm GMT from out rehearsal space (if it is still standing, it's been a while since we were in there). Do tune in and say hi.
I'm selling my Micro Dark. I like this amp but it is surplus to my amp needs at the moment and I hardly use it.

The Middle Ages drop a new single, 2 songs, tomorrow. Head over to our bandcamp page tomorrow and behold Disappointing Cafe and Thus Follows, two more instant classics from The Middle Ages' expanding catalogue of instant classics.
Disappointing Cafe is self explanatory, no metaphors here. The...
The Middle Ages play Hanna's in Navan this Saturday.
We will be playing two unique sets. We will play for two hours.
THAT'S NEARLY 30 QUALITY ORIGINAL ROCK SONGS.
The Middle Ages are better than your band. All of your bands!
The other day I finally heard all of the Hozier hit Take Me To Church and was very taken aback by how dull everything in this song is except the chorus. Still those few bars made the song a mega hit for him.
I've always thought Slipknot's Duality has the same deal. Great chorus but completely...
LCD Soundsystem are popular in these parts. James Murphy is a guest on the most recent podcast The Best Show. I'm only half way through so far but it seems like an interview you wouldn't get in most places....
