Yes, That Kevin.

In Blog by Rashers TierneyLeave a Comment

We’ve gotten a few messages about the Notes On Rave In Dublin screening and party that’s we’re organizing on December 1st with Con Arist. Basically, yes – it’s THAT Kevin Barry. Author of City Of Bohane and Beatlebone fame. Beatlebone won the 2015 Goldsmith Prize.  It meshes truths, semi-fictions, and lore into an intimate portrait of John Lennon and weaves in together fragmentary folk memories of Ireland’s lost countercultures of the 1970s. … Read More

    These t-shirts from Release gave us a chuckle this morning. Release is a UK based charity campaigning for reform of the drugs laws. They popped into our feed earlier and put a brief grin on our face in the middle of this otherwise bleak “suicide Tuesday” morning. Those with some form of memory left might recall a brief scandal back in 2009 when the charity had ads along these … Read More

Euro In The Army Now!

In Blog, Politics by Oisin GilmoreLeave a Comment

Above: Irish Anti-War Movement Says No To Lisbon A poster arguing for a no vote in one of the Lisbon referendums. From William Murphy on Flickr. Every European referendum that happens in Ireland brings with it a plethora of campaigns prattling on about an EU army and neutrality. Mainstream politicians scoff at this and then apparently nothing happens. It feels very much like the boy who cried wolf.  Oisin Gilmore reminds … Read More

DJ Mek delivers this stomper of a mix delving into the primordial soup of modern dance music. It’s part of RTE2FM’s Masterclass series and is a seriously spine-tingling schooling. Here’s what he had to say about it himself: “I went diggin through New York & L.A. ElectroFunk classics. Old skoolers will remember some of these jams from when Streetsounds mix albums ruled the day in UK, Ireland & Europe. Younger … Read More
