Goodly Thousands

Postby empyrean » Wed Feb 20, 2013 1:08 pm

Shelflife presents the debut double A-side 7" "Honest" b/w "I Wish" from Dublin, Ireland's Goodly Thousands, coming February 19th, 2013.

The band started in 2010 in the small town of Dundrum. Colm writes all the songs, plays guitar and sings, Aaron plays drums and Darren plays bass. The band draws inspiration from many of the beloved UK guitar pop groups of the mid-1980s. In fact, Colm reminds us of young Julian Henry (The Hit Parade) on guitar mixed with Ken Sweeney (Brian) on vocals. His songs are like lost Primal Scream demos from 1983. We know this is maybe the biggest compliment known to man, but we promise this record lives up to it! The jangly guitar sound so famously crafted back then is once again reborn 30 years later. The band's raw and intimate production on these recordings also show the pure genuineness of their sound (and heart). We just can't help to go nuts over this stuff and we can't wait to hear what's coming up next from them!

Goodly Thousands previously released the fantastic "Kiss Me Upside-Down" on the Popical Island #2 compilation as well as a 4 track EP on Long Lost Records in an edition of 50 CD copies. The two songs featured here are different versions than what was released on that EP. They've been playing several gigs in pubs, clubs and houses around Dublin, with many of those nights curated by Popical Island and Long Lost.

For fans of: The Hit Parade, early Primal Scream, Brian, The June Brides, The Servants ... s-honest-7
