The Oxfam EP

From the wonderful brains at the monthly Nighthawks club in Dublin's Cobalt Cafe, this collection of tracks proves there's more to musical comedy than record-breaking Kiwi duos. With all proceeds going directly to Oxfam, highlights include Trevor Browne's happily aloof 'Break-Up Song' and poetry from Colm Keegan, one of Dublin's best kept literary secrets.
