Jogging awakened in 2009. So far they have played some gigs with Parts & Labor, Ponytail, Adebisi Shank, BATS, Obits, THEMSELVES, The Redneck Manifesto and Giveamanakick. Their first split release with Not Squares came out September 2009 through Richter Collective. Their debut album ‘Minutes’ is released through Richter on 30th April 2010.
“I swear, these guys should be best friends with Best Coast, surfing with the Beach Boys, writing with Thurston Moore and hanging with TuneYards. Their music is so fun and fresh and yet reminds me of so many classic pop bands. So, so good. If you like handclaps and pop hooks then you will love this. Can’t wait to hear more by them. Altogether now, ‘Awoooooo…’”
Aoife Barry, Sweet Oblivion
Fairlights is the solo project of Spook of the Thirteenth Lock bass player and composer Enda Bates. Fairlights have released two albums with the Dublin based Alphabet Set Collective, Scraps (2003) and Quarterworks (2005). After a break to produce the critically acclaimed debut album from the Spook of the Thirteenth Lock in 2008, fairlights return in the summer of 2010 with a new album of melodic, vocal driven songs with repetitive krautrock rhythms, distorted synths and walls of guitar noise.
