Their Jimmy Ruffin cover will feature on an album in aid of the Simon Community.
Neil Hannon, Pugwash and Matt Berry of The IT Crowd fame have recorded a killer version of Jimmy Ruffin’s ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’, which was given its first public airing a few moments ago on Today FM by Tony Fenton.
Very much the sum of its perfect pop parts, it’s among the classic tunes that features on the Dublin Simon Community-aiding The Shortest Night album.
Out in a month’s time, it features additional contributions from Jape, Villagers, Bipolar Empire, Mick Pyro, The Pale, Propeller Palms and Solar Taxi plus a mass rendition of Ben E. King’s ‘Stand By Me’. The Summer Solstice launch party takes place on June 21 in the Dublin Button Factory.
