IRISH NOISE! – Alarmist (Bandcamp Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music with tags , , , , on November 19, 2010 by Tickets There

Irish people can’t get enough of the auld instrumental these days. Without name checking a bunch, let’s just say the market is quickly becoming one of the most loved on the underground scene, even beating the Def Leppard Retro Revival Coven Tickets There started well over five years ago. These things are a fad of course while Def Leppard is forever, bow down.

Anyways, since ‘the world’ is pressuring us to continue taking about what’s ‘in’, we thought you might like to hear about Alarmist, an up and coming instrumental band from Dublin. So far we’ve only heard two tunes and already we’re hearing a distinction in their music not duplicated from the others currently making names for themselves. For fans of Chequerboard and The Rednecks, these guys are for you. Well orchestrated music delivered with excitement and excellent playing ability. Not convinced with Giraffe Centre ?(I know, but thinking of quality names is harder these days), then the ending of Vitamin Saturday (really hard) will sell it to ya.

The band aren’t heavy, but they’re also not so devoid of sound that’d you fall asleep buying their album. Very nice from a new crowd and one we’ll be revisiting once they get a few more finalized tracks together. Check them out when they play The Workman’s Club, Thursday November 25th.

…oh, and hop over to their Bandcamp Profile for a spin of le tunes 😉

ROAD RECORDS: Farewell Party Tomorrow Night!

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2010 by Tickets There

Road Records may be gone but you didn’t think they’d leave without one final shindig did you? Tomorrow night, the Button factory opens up for a gig that looks better by the minute (off course it had to be held when Tickets There is away at our first festival in 5/6 years and off course it has to include two of our favorite Irish bands of all time!).

Leading proceedings will be Dublin’s much loved, The Redneck Manifesto. The instrumental band will tear the place apart if there’s anything left after legendary post punk, garage rock thrashers Female Hercules reform to kick some serious record buying public ass!

Also set to perform are Legion of Two, Patrick Kelleher and His Cold Dead Hands, Cian Nugent and Road Records gurus Dave & Julie may even take to stage to belt out a few classic tunes to finish things off in proper Road fashion.

If you’re in town and you regret (like us) not getting a chance to pop in before the shutters were officially closed, then head along and show you’re gratitude for their years of excellent service and craic. Tickets are a measly €16 so no excuses! (Rednecks and Female Hercules for god’s sake!!!)

Tickets There would like to wish Dave and Julie the best of luck tomorrow night; I hope ye have a blast!

The Redneck Manifesto – Friendship (Album Review)

Posted in Album Review, IRISH NOISE!, Music with tags , , , , , on March 26, 2010 by Tickets There

Instrumental fans prepare for lift off, The Redneck Manifesto have returned with an album so funked up you’ll be drooling over it for many weeks and months to come. After being announced in late 2008, the band has finally released their first LP since 2004’s I Am Brazil and it’s been more than worth the wait.

Opening with the ambient Black Apple, the album boasts the bands trademark quirky guitars, well built melodies and an overall flow any band would kill for. You’d happily sit back, click this on and never guess it was divided into ten separate tracks. There’s an array of different styles to give each song its own unique hook and appeal. Tracks like Smile More and Click display some heavier techno styles, Little Noise, Drum Drum and Weird Waters delve into the grand old world of funk. The bass lines on Little Noise and Weird Waters are especially tasty and show Richie Egan hasn’t been ignoring his original calling.

Shorter tracks like Tomb of The Dude, Hex , the odd, almost confusingly relaxing Cloud Break and the stand out Rubber Up (Not just a title) finish things off and leave you with a sense that paying money for this album is one of the best things you’ll do this year.

Catch the Rednecks when they play Dublin’s Tripod tomorrow night. Tickets on sale now priced €16.00 and available from

To hear the album for yourself, visit the Irish Times, where it’s currnelty being streamed.

IRISH NOISE! The Redneck Manifesto – Black Apple (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , on February 22, 2010 by Tickets There

With instrumental music becoming the new phenomenon in this country, it’s about time the band that do it best come back and show the young un’s what it’s all about. After a four year wait, that’s exactly what The Redneck Manifesto have done.

Last week saw the release of the first TRM material since 2006’s Seven Stabs E.P. and the boys have lost none of their magic. Black Apple is full of cosmic changes, electronica laden beats, quirky guitars, funky bass lines and a rapturous speed that makes the headphones shake for the last couple of minutes. The five minutes fly by in seconds and you’ll only be left wanting more. The year may be young, but what we have here is one of the freshest Irish recordings we’ve seen in a while.

Their new album, Friendship is coming to shop near you on March 26th and you can bet it’ll be snapped up quickly. Pop over to Nialler9’s Site to hear Black Apple and see the albums track list by Clicking Here.
