This Saturday sees the Irish debut of four bands on the Brainlove Records label, with Napoleon IIIrd (pictured), Pagan Wanderer Lu, Stairs To Korea and Mat Reviere all appearing at the Twisted Pepper in Dublin. Presented by Ragged Words, tickets priced a mere €10 are on sale now.
Talking of his admiration for the label, Ragged Words editor Padraic Halpin says, “when I first started the website a few years back, I did so walking wide-eyed around London, a city that fed a new music addiction, whether it was watching the latest StereoFork-approved band at White Heat on a Tuesday night or discovering another great local band or label most other nights of the week. One such label, Brainlove Records, immediately left an impression on me and looking back, represented a big turning point for the direction this little webzine of ours would go. The label was about sharing interesting and innovative music. Nothing else. It’s a trait I hope Ragged Words shares. It’s the all we really care about.”
