Rubberbandits record Willie O'Dea tribute song
Well, sort of!
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 04 Mar 2010
We thought you might like to check out this loving paen to Willie O’Dea by Treaty City likely lads Rubberbandits. We may have said some harsh things about the Limerick East T.D. in the past but, tell you what, he's a mean guitar-picker!
You can also hear such other gems as ‘Pure Awkward’, ‘Garda Síochána’, ‘Up Da Ra’ and ‘The Wasp’ at myspace.com/rubberbanditspranks.
