Accolades don’t come much higher than being asked to meet your idols, but that’s what happened to Dublin pop-festish band Pugwash when Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson got a load of their new single.
As the pic of Pugwash’s frontman Thomas Walsh shows, he met his hereo while Brian was this side of the pond to play Vicar St.
Thomas was also asked to perform at the recent Q&A and screening of the documentary Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson and the Story of Smile at the IFI.
The film's director, David Leaf, is also a huge fan – he's said that their track ‘It’s Nice To Be Nice’ hasn’t been off his stereo for weeks.
“We're awaiting some more personal feedback from the band and Brian when they get home from this current tour, but the signs are all wonderful,” says a rather excited Thomas on the band’s official site.
