The Richter Collective have announced their first release – ‘The Rocky IV Reckyrd‘, debut album from The Vinny Club. The launch party takes place on Saturday May 31st in Andrews Lane Theater with a live performance by The Vinny Club and DJ sets from Super Extra Bonus Party, Bats and Foggy Notions. €10 gets you in and a free copy of the album.
Doors are at 8pm – that’s 8pm real time, not 8pm DST (Dublin Scene Time), so turn up on time since there’s an 11pm curfew, with a late bar until 3am.
The Vinny Club is the lovechild of Vinny, bassist in cult Irish band Adebisi Shank. Born out of a dangerous obsession with 8-bit video games and 80’s action movies, his unique brand of synth pop fun will leave you with a boner in your pants and a grin on your face. By age 11 Vinny had constructed a makeshift recording studio under his bed where he retreated to for hours on end.
His first release was 2007’s ‘Tech Noir‘ EP, which garnered rave reviews despite being available as a cassette only release, on his own, ‘Vince Rekyrds’. Next came 2008’s ‘Rocky IV Reckyrd‘, a concept album based around the fourth Rocky movie. It’s an album bursting with glitchy synth pop fun, super fast melodies, whip cracking sexy beats and more funky basslines than you can shake a joystick at.
You can hear the first track on The Rocky IV Reckyrd, ‘It’s Not You It’s OF’, right over here.
