ZARBOTH NEW RELEASE & TOUR in Switzerland

Its been a long time! I’ve been busy though. I’m going to get back into my website. Its not a new year resolution or anything I’m just getting sick and tired of social media and its algorithms that push us under the radar even more. That said take time to look at my instagram

So tomorrow on tour with Zarboth! Our new album (with artwork by yours truly) which is a two track album SIDE A and SIDE B is available worldwide through bandcamp here

The two tracks are Underground River which is about the vital force in all of us, that a lot of us don’t see or want to see… and Putain Putain which is the B side asks the timely question what does it mean to be European. This is a track that we all look forward to playing in Switzerland, that most European of non European countries.

Who knows what Europe means anymore? We don’t!

This song Putain Putain is a cover version of a song by TC Matic with the Belgian singer Arno- there are some lyrics in Flemish. I threw a Beastie Boys rap into the mix, just go and check it out. Hope you enjoy the sound.

And so tomorrow we take all of this to Switzerland – come and see us if you live there and put the word out to others who might like to come and see us. Here are the dates:

Comes in threes

Onze Onze black n white logo

Comes in threes, good things come in three, come threefold,

The first good news is that Onze Onze’s new EP Falling Into Place is now out. You can listen on bandcamp or on soundcloud.

The second great news is that Profane No. 4 is coming out on the 19th of May 2017. This is a quarterly review of amateur art. There is a series of drawings that I did especially for the revue that are in this issue.

You can see my recent drawings here.

The third piece of good news is private. For the moment..

Have a good one!

News- but not really

Hello all,

I have been a bad blogger- I spend most of my time on Instagram where I am throwing up a drawing or a film nearly every other day.

Macdara on Instagram

I should try and do that here more often. I did take a new year’s resolution where I said that I would write a blog post here every week. Maybe I will get back to it sometime.

Honestly though, working, making art and raising a family, just makes these things slide.

Here instead is some news before this special weekend.

I’m in a great mood to be doing two dates with Zarboth

We are playing Bourges on Friday 21st April at the Printemps de Bourges (OFF) à L’Hexagone, 11 rue des trois bourses, 18000 Bourges, France

And Saturday 22nd April in Les Hirondelles 2 Place sous l’Orme, 89450 Asquins, France.

On Sunday I’ll be playing with the equally fabulous Onze Onze

We are playing at the MOFO festival in Mains d’Œuvres but come early!
