Emerging Northside Dublin band The Rattling Kind have announced an Academy 2 show for June 15th. Tickets €10.00 incl. booking fee from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie
With fluid drumming (John Mulrooney), driving bass (Thomas Forde) and incisive lead guitar playing (Ben McGinn), heartfelt lyrics are sung passionately by lead singer Eddie Sherlock in his unique voice.
With a love for Irish artists such as The Dubliners, Damien Dempsey, Declan Sinnott, The Frames and Villagers, as well as international artists like Paulo Nutini, Newton Faulkner, Arcade Fire, Kasabian, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and Frank Zappa, the band hope to pool their musical influences together and aim to produce “The Rattling Kind” of music.
Having worked the Dublin pub scene for over a year, Eddie had gained quite the following for his rousing renditions of the many classic Irish ballad songs.
But he wanted more…
Thomas, a keen writer, began meeting up with Eddie in their spare time and it was at this juncture that the decision was taken – they would write their own songs and play their own music. They would form a band.
Next to join was Ben, taking on the role of lead guitarist. But Ben would swap from one musical instrument to the next; he has even been known to play wine glasses at house parties.
But the whole sound really came together when John arrived on drums. The transition was seamless. A former member of “The Artane Boy’s Band” and a childhood friend of Thomas, John settled in quickly and after a mere three rehearsals was already gigging with the band.
Hardworking, energetic and honest, these five lads from the Northside of Dublin hope you enjoy their music.
It’s “The Rattling Kind”.
