Don't Feel Like Danson
Their first gig was just four weeks ago and they’re barely together five months, so why is it so important you hear The Cast Of Cheers? Celina Murphy meets the Dublin foursome whose unconventional route makes them the most exciting new things in Irish rock.

And double the album like Lady GaGa?
“Very like Lady GaGa. We’re actually just gonna cover Lady GaGa’s album.”
Dropping refrains of ‘Crooked vampire/Super James Dean’ on ‘Autoshottie’ might lead us to believe that the lyrics are totally arbitrary. “Not at all,” Adams says. “They all have their own little things. Even ‘Autoshottie’, we were playing this Xbox 360 game about the Apocalypse and I’d read The Road really recently, so it was about putting ourselves in that position.”
“It’s all about kicking ass,” Higgins notes.
“The lyrics mirror the music,” Adams muses. “The music was about cutting out the bullshit and lyric wise telling a whole story doesn’t leave anything open to anything, you’ve heard it all before. But if you pick every fourth line, you get a glimpse of it and you go ‘What exactly is he on about?’ Everyone can get their own little thing from it.”
‘I have to say it was the easiest recording ever, that’s the best way to describe it. I guarantee you, now the second album will be a nightmare!”
Call me selfish, but so long as they keep making records, I’m happy.
