An Eyebrowy slam-dunk as they set the scene for Bell X1′s show at Malahide Castle last weekend. More of this kind of thing please chaps.

Corker! A new website looks at the early days of club culture in Cork with a grand round-up of the Sir Henry’s days, including the 120BPM documentary, various mixes from the Sweat glory days, some Stevie G joints and lots of flyers. There’s even a couple of pics in there from Nirvana’s show at the venue back in 1991 when they supported Sonic Youth. Ah, I remember it well…

Bruuuuuuce! It’s the On The Record YouTube Springsteen grab including “Thunder Road” from 1976, a promo video for “Atlantic City” from 1982 (hmm, wonder has David Chase seen this one?) and an acoustic version of “Born To Run” from 1986.

Hello to Seamus Brennan, the new Minister for Fun at the Department of Arts, Sport & Tourism. Will he do anything for the Irish music industry? Keep dreaming, boys and girls, keep dreaming.

Os Mutantes are coming! Yes, we know we’ve probably mentioned this before, but the Brazilian psychedelic pop icons play Dublin’s Vicar Street on July 26. When Caetano Veloso first met them, he said “they looked like three angels”. They look somewhat different these days we’re sure, but check out this trailer from the proposed band documentary “Bread & Circuses – A Film About Os Mutantes” and get a fever for the flavour. This show had better not get canned.
