The Redneck Manifesto play The Button Factory on Wednesday night & we’ve some free tickets to give away.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas: The Redneck Manifesto are back in town and will play The Button Factory on December 1st with The Black Triangle & Skinny Wolves DJs.
Having have been at the forefront of the independent music scene in Ireland for over 10 years – aided by word of mouth, staunchly supportive fans and impassioned live shows – TRM have already released three modern Irish classic records in the shape of Thirty Six Strings (2001), Cut Your Heart Off From Your Head (2002) and I Am Brazil(2004). 2010 sees the band ready to unleash their fourth full-length Friendship – a 10-track album that the band themselves compare to “a psychedelic kraut-rock band jamming with The Meters”.
It might be four years since their last recorded output, the Seven Stabs EP but the quintet of Mervyn Craig, Matthew Bolger, Niall Byrne, Richard Egan and Neil O’Connor have been busy on their own solo projects in the interim. Richard Egan is now well-known for his electro-influenced transcendent pop side-project “Jape” having released previously three albums culminating in 2008′s Choice Music Prize winning album Ritual. Matt Bolger is part of the design duo M&E who are gaining plaudits across the design community and makes synth-laden music under the name “The Son Green“. Neil O’ Connor is also known as experimental ambient composer “Somadrone” while Niall performs as “Visionaire” and Mervyn creates his own music under the name “Cochon and On“.
