Stardom beckons for IMELDA MAY. The Dublin rockabilly queen has packed The O2 and dazzled on the BBC’s Later...With Jools Holland. Now she’s about to release her major label debut, a record that looks set to confirm her as one of the outstanding new talents in Irish music. With the countdown underway she weighs in on such diverse subjects as Jedward, the suspected suicide of a concert goer at a Swell Season show and tells us about snuggling in between Quentin Tarantino and Alice Cooper at the Grammys.
‘Good life came callin’ I fell under its spell and kept fallin’, throatily sings rockabilly star Imelda May on ‘Pulling The Rug’, the deliciously infectious opening track on her soon to be released new album, Mayhem. As with many of the beautiful Dubliner’s songs, there’s more than a touch of autobiography in the lyric.
