In the mid nineties a small pocket of bands from Dublin hinted that something wonderful could be on the horizon. The Jubilee Allstars, In Motion, Bawl, the Sewing Room and Sunbear were all fashioning alchemy from base instruments. Luggage weren’t entirely in the same league but still produced a couple of terrific EP’s over a short time. The ‘Comical Life’ EP was one such, four strong tunes with ‘Show Me Around’ being the obvious highlight. Think Tindersticks as the gloom is about to lift and you’ll be ballpark. ‘Show Me Around’ exhibits lazy, shambolic chords thrown together like forgotten CD’s in a bargain bin float by as Barry O’Mahony’s laconic utterances transform the vocal slouch into an art form. Just perfect for those mid-term mornings when getting up isn’t really a runner. KD
