Grand Pocket Orchestra – Little Messy

At the end of the month the sound of young Ireland will do its best to light up what has become the annual showcase of local talent known as Hard Working Class Heroes. It’s quite possible that many of the acts will have ceased to exist by next year’s event so over the next couple of weeks this site will try and put its money on the ones that are a good bet to succeed. First up is the trio known as Grand Pocket Orchestra who don’t fit into the typical profile for an Irish act. That’s right, they actually sound like they are quite happy making music that is fun to listen to. Take the summery breeze that is ‘Little Messy’ that could be the Go! Team were they to drop activity levels from 78 to 45 RPM. Thankfully Paddy Hanna and his cohorts can also go straight back up to 78 with songs like ‘Radio’ which is as close to a perfect companion you could get for any of the highlights on Brakes criminally underrated ‘Give Blood’ album. Reports that GPO have signed a deal with An Post to play their O’Connell Street branch are as yet unfounded. KD
