Turn announce Christmas Show in Button Factory

A year after their 'last hurrah', Turn... er, return on December 28.

For all of you who thought last December's Button Factory show was your final chance to see much-loved Irish indie heroes Turn on stage, we have good news today.

Ollie Cole and co have confirmed that they will play another one-off show in the same venue on December 28.,

The Christmas time show is to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their Forward album, which is about to get a digital release. Expect plenty of numbers from all three of their records when they return to their familiar Temple Bar surroundings.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at €13.50 from usual outlets.

Stop

The first thing that strikes you about ‘Stop’ is its complete lack of balls. There was a time when Turn were well on their way to becoming the best rock band this country has produced since Whipping Boy. However, the days of tracks like ‘Face Down’ and ‘Beeswax’ are seemingly over. Given the snip, ‘Stop’ is a slice of radio friendly day-time pop very much in the vein of Snow Patrol. There’s even East 17-style Christmas glistenings at the track’s close. Far from their best work.
