Atominated’s Return?

Posted in Music, News with tags , , on May 26, 2014 by Tickets There

10152423_768573106508985_7092702042875684902_nIt looks like Atominated have made a positive step towards their grand return. They announced last week that former Twisted Autocracy frontman, Darrel Tanfin has joined the band (presumably as singer and rhythm guitarist – TBC) and now they just need a new bass player.

If you play bass and you’re savage craic – give them a shout and send on a demo. If they tell you, ‘f**k off – we have a bass player. Where did you get this amateur hour information?’, you can blame sexy a$$ Tickets There – Ireland’s answer to the Hustler Heavy Metal Christmas Special.

Updates! – So as you know, for the last few months we have been in the gutter about whether AD is to continue and live on past the struggles we were faced with when replacing Emmet. During this process we have parted ways with Cormac Jordan on good terms (Rhythm Guitar) and we would like to welcome into the AD family, a talented player and singer, he was the frontman of Dublin thrash band Twisted Autocracy and has played with a number of musicians in his time in the scene. His name is Darrel Tanfin and you can hear him at the track below. With all of the line-up changes (and problems) we have gone through as a band, I can say for myself that this line-up is my most thought of and I am more confident than ever about it. Thank you to everyone who stood by us and gave us the reason to continue writing music and forwarding ourselves as a band.

Twisted Autocracy Announce Split

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , on May 26, 2014 by Tickets There

10365458_554693254640331_1211431828597273715_oI can’t believe I’m writing this, but one of Ireland’s most exciting young thrash bands have called it a day! Twisted Autocracy are no more.  The band posted a message on their Facebook page last week confirming the split after just over a year of playing shows.

In their brief  time together, they appeared on nearly every thrash metal gig line-up going and released the excellent, Reinstate the Hate E.P. The band will be sorely missed and Tickets There would like to wish them all well in their future endeavours, especially Darrel Tanfin who has recently been confirmed as the newest member of Atominated.

Hi everyone, We have been quiet for a while now and it is unfortunate that we must break that silence with some pretty bad news.
As of last week we have decided to end Twisted Autocracy and call it a day. We have had an amazing time making this band what it is
but we feel it has just run it’s course and it’s time for us to move on. Although it is sad that it is ending we prefer to call it a day
with the four members that made Twisted Autocracy what it was. We are and always will be brothers and couldn’t be on better terms.
The memorys
(sic) we have shared both with each other and with every single person we have ever had the pleasure of playing to,conversed with at gigs,
played with on stage or generally just enjoyed the company of will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Seriously thank you so much to everyone
who made those memorys
(sic) something that will stay with us in our hearts forever. We had our first gig on the 4th of May 2013 and our last on the 26th of April,
So basically the guts of a year and what a year it was! We will not thank anyone in particular due to the dreadful fear that we would forget someone
because truly we are grateful to everyone who helped us! It was one hell of a time and we hope to see you all out there supporting the metal scene that was so kind to us!
We wish you all the best and one last final time,
Peace and Thrash \m/
-Darrel,Luigi,Sean and Forde

Bass Player Colony Collapse Threatens Irish Music Scene

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music, News with tags , , , , , , on May 1, 2014 by Tickets There

bass1

Over the past three weeks, a noticeable shortage of Irish bass players has emerged. Several bands have taken to Facebook, their websites and twitter feeds to literally beg for replacement players. Atominated, Stone Trigger and even our new favourites – Stereo Nasty are all in dire need for the 4-6 stringers, but bass players are keeping quiet and out of sight leading many to believe we are now experiencing a catastrophic bassist colony collapse in Ireland.

IMG_8856Taking to Tickets There, Rory – a self-confessed bass player from Clondalkin, admitted that the musicians have finally had enough of the reckless mocking they’ve had to endure ever since they put down those €100 beginner fender guitars and moved on to the “far more complicated” fender copy bass. Mocking remarks, such as “you’ll never get laid playing bass”, “bass players are just bad guitarists” and “I’m sleeping with your lead guitarist… and singer” have taken their toll according to Rory.

We’ve simply had enough”, he adds. “Bass players provide the backbone to everything. Without us, where would the band be? ..and Justice For All – that’s where and look how shit that was”.

Mass hibernation, 24 hour long funky bedroom solo-performances and a sharp drop in bass sales is expected to widely impact live performances, album recordings and the record industry on a whole according to Rory, but singers, guitarists and even drummers are in disagreement.

IMG_8857We hadn’t actually realized our bass player was missing”, admits Tommy from Stone Trigger. “We hit the studio and recorded all the solos, lyrics, drum beats and thought we were good to go. It was only when our producer mentioned bass that we copped on he’d left. We contacted the guy who used to play for us and it turned out he’d left six months beforehand. Fortunately the crowd never seemed to notice”.

Bass players from around the country are expected to make a final stand by marching down the Liffey to the O2 this Saturday. Over a dozen marchers and spectators are expected to attend with Gardi already scaling up a riot control / counter terrorism squad in case marchers get out of hand. “Mostly it’ll be a peaceful protest, but there could be an element that’ll get out of hand and maybe lurk and leer too much” adds Rory.

There are no traffic restrictions expected to be put in place for Saturday’s march.
