Playlist 265 – May 7 2013 - with The Altered Hours

A special with The Altered Hours this week.

Cathal and Paddy from the band were in studio chatting about their musical influences, they brought along some tunes, and of course their wonderful new Sweet Jelly Roll EP which came out last week, recorded in Berlin with Fabian Leseure and released on a Recordings (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dirty Beaches).

It was all most interesting - we found out that Cathal got into punk via a friend who was into skateboarding, that he met at his granny's house!; and that Paddy had a row with someone at a house party in Ballina over a bottle of Buckfast and proceeded to discover The Clash. The lads also had some interesting ideas about psych rock and and why it seems to be in the water these days.

The Altered Hours play at The Pavilion in Cork tomorrow night with The Northern Drones, launching their EP, and are touring Ireland over the next couple of months.
