Dae Kim are a quintet from Dublin who cite MBV, Ride and Nirvana as influences. So far so good and things get even better when you find out that Terry Cullen, ex of Tenspeedracer, is involved. Very involved it seems as Cullen’s has swapped the stool at the back for the microphone up front. Kinda hard to work out whether Cullen has a good voice though as he is normally surrounded by a smouldering set of guitars and usually gets caught up in the distortion himself. The effect is wholesome and given that Dae Kim’s Katie O’Sullivan often throws in a sweet line or two it can often be downright adorable. Dae Kim’s debut was released in 2005 on independent label Sofa Records. A limited edition 7-inch of ‘Sticky Fingers’ was released last December so let’s hope that’s not the last we hear from this talented gang. KD

Quality band. Got to catch up with them (and pick up the album) last year in Kilkenny, at that stage they said they were going to re-record and re-release it afaik.>>Cracking album though, travels with me on the iPod and the lads are well worth going to see live.h
