2011: Top Story: Faces of 2011 – Retarded Cop

If you were down with Dublin punk-rock you’re probably aware of Moutpiece, and particularly with their album artwork which featured singer Gaz Le Rock in his jocks outside a Dublin city centre fruit wholesalers giving it socks with a guitar.

Gaz, now an awesome RTE 2XM radio DJ (The Loving Room Floor) is channeling that same energy and fervour into his solo punk pop project Retarded Cop. Since November, Gaz has been posting up Youtube videos and streams of new songs almost every week. A debut LP is in the works right now with some gigs coming up very soon that will feature two drummers. It’s pop from the cop.
