When not touring with Republic Of Loose, Mick pyro is free to kick back in his basement pad in a 1960s Swedish-style Terenure house, where he indulges his love of CDs, books and movies – and ponders the aesthetic similarities between Shakespeare and hip hop.
London’s Daily Telegraph wasn’t too far off the mark when it described Republic of Loose frontman Mick Pyro as “a bizarre mixture of Otis Redding, Screaming Jay Hawkins and an Irish drunk at closing time.” A quick glance around his flat confirms that art does indeed mirror life and Pyro’s chaotically inclined stage-craft is pretty much reflected in his bohemian lifestyle.
Republic of Loose are currently on an extensive Irish tour. Check What's On for details.
