These lads, Carlow’s own Cormac Strain (bass, guitars, keys, percussion, production) and Gala Hutton (guitars, keys, percussion), have been going strong since round about mid 2000, and during the first ten years played a couple of sought after spots at the big yearly Irish Indie showcase HWCH (now Ireland Music Week), and have been chugging along ever since.
After scoring a top 20 single in Ireland, the duo were declared “the best thing to come out of Ireland in years” (2fm), hailed by the RTE Guide as a “hot property“, were Tom Dunne’s Today FM “Artist of the Week“.
They’ve played support to acts like The Walls, Future Kings of Spain, The Frank and Walters, Bez and The Revs.
Both Strain and Gala have worked closely with ex The Damned drummer and punk legend Rat Scabies, with Strain recently featuring on Rat Scabies’ produced and Cleopatra released Sid Vicious limited edition EP ‘My Way’.
We at Avant Music Port are very much looking forward to the new materials bubbling away nicely on the 79Cortinaz stove, and we’re sure you will be too after taking a listen here.
