Laois has a long and proud history in producing gilded rock bands, one has to only look as far as Mesner to realise that er”¦.the spirit of John Lennon is nowhere to be seen. That said, the great folks in Stradbally have decided enough is enough and for the last couple of years their Electric Picnic has been far and away Ireland’s best music festival. 79cortinaz are another reason to be hopeful even if most of the band members come from nearby Carlow. If you are into the Spinto Bands’ inclination for knocking out mini classics then ‘Deirdre’s Song’ could well be a knockout treat. The vocals have a warm Grandaddy quality and the playing has a lo-fi edge that could make it a winner in garage venues up and down the land. KD
