The latest addition to the Popical Island register, Tuam three piece Oh Boland are right at home in the collective of lo-fi popsters. Tapping in the tradition of garage punk in the vein of any self-respecting power trio, they nevertheless put their own spin on the sound. Energy is the key to what makes them fun to be around – a ragged, passionate and spirited approach to thrashing the crap out of guitar, bass and drums. Guided in the studio by Ginnels Mark Chester, the resulting tracks will appear on a suitably old school split cassette with Me And My Dog next month.
