Podcast 08 – State at CMJ 2008 – The Irish contingent

Julien Clancy’s second half report from CMJ, New York concerns the Irish bands at the festival.

First up is a quick chat with Bressie from The Blizzards who talks about low expectations and having a a drummer with food poisoning who is trying not to get sick on stage during performance. Hooray for Humans get harrassed by an excited fan while Giveamanakick thought they were gonna die during the first song and they made a friend with a Vietnam vet.

Giveamanakick also had high praise for the wonderful Heathers saying of their performance that they “witnessed the start of something huge”. Sisters Louise and Ellie are having the best year ever and after having just started college, they flew out to NY to play CMJ. They tell Julien about writing songs in Irish and their plans for the coming months.
