Live in Galway, Limerick, Cork & Kilkenny. Tickets on sale Monday May 31st at 9am

“Having spent the last 2 years singing for the trees (great audience), we’re mad to play for humans again. We haven’t seen each other in almost 2 years so these are going to be the most special shows for us. Friends coming back together to make noise for & about our communities. Some amazing people have struggled to keep these great venues opened the past 18 months, so we have places to play. The time is nearly upon us to fill those places with soundwaves , once more. Tickets on sale Monday morn at 9a.m. Happy Friday X.”

Tales from the High Stool w/ Padraig O’Coinn/ Brian Brannigan A Lazarus Soul

A very enjoyable interview I did a while back with Padraig O’Coinn for his Tales from the Tall Stool show on 2RRR in Australia.

My guest this week is Brian Branigan of A Lazarus Soul. Their 4th studio album ‘The D they put between the R and L’ was nominated for best Irish album of 2019. Brian was nicknamed Lazarus by his mother, told he wouldn’t survive at birth. He did, but had major surgery for a form of Spina bifida – only to have cancer in his teens, saved again by good fortune & surgery. This had a huge effect on a young mind & song writing became his coping mechanism, a way of figuring out the world. His songs became those of A Lazarus Soul & he is one of Ireland’s finest lyrical commentators. He writes songs on behalf of the dregs & the disenfranchised of Irish society; for the poor, the homeless, addicts, refugees; kids & mothers who wait at home while fathers shout drinks for strangers at the pub; Dubliners whose communities were broken & flats torn down as the inner city became gentrified. A fascinating interview & some amazing music!

Tower Records Recommended with With Brian Brannigan (A Lazarus Soul)

There’s something about A Lazarus Soul frontman Brian Brannigan that you can’t get away from, his charm is utterly inescapable. His passion for music and genuine interest in people is like a force of gravity, when he’s in the room people orbit him. This week he talks us through some of his favourite albums and what they mean to him, whether it’s his go to Sunday Morning pick or the music that got him through lockdown. We weren’t fully prepared for the pull of “The Upside-down Robert Smith”. Are you?

This is Tower Recommended
