Ragged Words & UK label Brainlove Records have teamed up for a special gig highlighting four Brainlove artists. Napoleon IIIrd, Pagan Wanderer Lu, Stairs To Korea & Mat Riviere will all make their Irish debut in The Twisted Pepper on Saturday October 2nd. Padraic from Ragged Words says:
When I first started Ragged Words a few years back, I did so walking wide-eyed around London, a city that fed a new music addiction, whether it was watching the latest StereoFork-approved band at White Heat on a Tuesday night or discovering another great local band or label most other nights of the week. One such label, Brainlove Records, immediately left an impression on me and looking back, represented a big turning point for the direction this little webzine of ours would go. The label was about sharing interesting, inventive music. Nothing else. It’s a trait I hope Ragged Words shares. It’s the all we really care about.
I’m very excited therefore to introduce Brainlove and four of its most distinctive artists – Napoleon IIIrd, Pagan Wanderer Lu, Stairs To Korea & Mat Riviere – to Irish audiences for the first time on Saturday, Oct. 2. The bands come over in the midst of a label UK tour – the Brainlove Family is held in the highest esteem by the likes of Drowned In Sound, The Quietus & The Line Of Best Fit (the kind of esteem we reserve for the like-minded and similarly brilliant Popical Island) – and we’re keeping prices for the show at Dublin’s Twisted Pepper as low as possible at €10 (plus advance booking fee).
