The Irish Independent plugs a new Atlantic records signing (I guess they’re still looking for bands, who knew?), Fighting With Wire. A rocking band who has hit the jackpot by getting their songs out to the right folks. Ultimately that’s how it’s done.
The same article also talks about the changing scene in N. Ireland. They tip us off to a few more bands and sources for music. I’ll be sure to check some out and if something catches my ears I’ll surely blog about them.
Here’s my tip o’ the day:
New music magazine, State. An Irish music magazine to compete with UK mags Mojo, Uncut and the like. It debuted on newstands earlier this month. Their website has been online a bit longer. A couple of former writers for Hot Press are working as editors.
