Friday Freebie – Kobina


With Hard Working Class Heroes 2013 fast approaching there is no better time to be catching up with some of the Irish music scene that may have previously passed you by. If like me you failed to hear of Kobina til now then you’re in for a treat. The Dublin producer has been in action for less than a year but has already landed several impressive support slots as well as a set at Longitude Festival during the summer. Stay Right Now clearly suggests we should be hearing lots more from Kobina in the future. As this weeks Friday Freebie it’s available to download below..

The Jim Jones Revue: Interview


The Jim Jones Revue returned to Dublin last week, it having been more than three years since their last gig here, but hey it’s hard to blame them given the lack of support they got in Ireland last time round, compared to the love they always get elsewhere. Anyway thankfully this time Whelans welcomed ‘the greatest Rock n Roll band in the world right now‘ with a fairly full house on January 24th.

Showcasing songs from the recently released The Savage Heart, which casts a wider musical net, gave us an opportunity to see and hear that the hardest and loudest are now more dynamic.

I sat down with Jim Jones and Rupert Orton for a chat before the gig and this is how it went.
