The Loose on The Late Late tonight

Their new album Bounce At The Devil is out now

If you were looking for a half-decent reason to stay in tonight (or to watch The Late Late Show), Republic Of Loose will be performing live on Tubridy's chat show tonight. They're celebrating the release of their new album Bounce At The Devil, out in stores today, though it's unlikely there'll be one for everybody in the audience.

And if you're not in Donnybrook or near a TV screen, they'll also be pitching up at The Academy next week, as part of their four month residency at the Dublin venue which sees them play one Friday every month.

You can catch them at HMV Grafton Street at noon tomorrow if you so wish, then they're off for a show in Cyprus Avenue in Cork tomorrow night.

The Idiots

Imagine the scene: It’s 3.50am, Chamillionaire’s track has just finished playing at an underground sweaty club. The house lights rise to induce the clubbers’ squints, and rising from the speakers is ‘The Idiots’, the last track of the night, and a perfect accompaniment to the meeting of lips (for those with partners) and eyes across the dancefloor (for those without). Shame its refrain is the less romance-inducing ‘drunk in the middle of a doughnut shop”.

Shame

Once again, Mick Pyro and co have created a song which sounds a million miles from anything we might have anticipated. It’s as if they heard some old funk records, and decided to recreate them – but using gratuitous swear words and as many random instruments as they could carry. It’s a rather bizarre lead track from the Dubliners’ second album – crazy, but oddly impressive.

You Know It

The way in which ‘Comeback Girl’ ram-raided its way into the mainstream was one of the most satisfactory moments of the year, further proof that domestic bands are more than capable of holding their own in the world of play-lists, pluggers and record company muscle. Sadly, it seems that ROL themselves were so satisfied with its success that they forgot to put any effort into the follow up. ‘You Know It’ is essentially ‘Comeback Girl’ mark two, without any of the spark or originality. All that’s left is a dull r&b track and there’s plenty of those about already. We need them to be better than this.
