The Murder Capital

Musicians — Dublin

Name, where are you from?
The Murder Capital, Ireland.

Describe your style in three words?
Hungover Cillian Murphy.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to (and why)?
The Blaze at Electric Picnic 2018. We stood arm in arm, drenched from the rain.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Joy Division. They provided a soundtrack of resistance.
Republic of Loose. Mik Pyro is an icon in every sense of the word.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
The current Garage Culture in Dublin. The heads you meet on Essex street and the surrounding area on any given week has warped the way we’ve experienced Dublin as a band.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Francesca Woodman. Her photography has been of great inspiration to both us as individuals and to our writing.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Brudenell Social Club, Leeds - The decor felt like it had been the same since before Italia ’90. We didn’t know whether the lads in the games room were gonna hug us or cave our heads in with a pool cue.
The Workman’s Club, Dublin - It’s where we cut our teeth. Where discussions and ideas are formed. Where we go to dance to LCD.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
The band 'The Sound', got caught in the malaise created by Joy Division and Echo & The Bunnymen and never got the exposure they deserved.
