We don’t talk about enough fine Irish acts on this blog for good reason; there just aren’t an awful lot of them around. When something worthwhile does come along we tend to break open the champagne and jump up and down while chanting ‘there’s more to this country than just U2′. Tis’ a rare enough scene to be honest but a certain Dublin band named Angel Pier have been on my radar for a while now and with their second EP ‘Sacrifice’ about to be released here’s your chance to get in on the action. 3 lucky readers will have a smashing Angel Pier prize (Darragh from the band expressly allowed me use the word ‘smashing’ as he and I both agreed it is much underutilized in modern society) winging its way to them and all you got to do to be in with a chance of winning is to send an email with your name. Each of the winners will receive both Angel Pier EP’s, an Angel Pier t-shirt, badge and 2 slots on the guestlist for their upcoming Whelan’s gig on Saturday the 9th of August. If that wasn’t enough you’ll also become the owner of a freshly minted mp3hugger t-shirt made from the finest Connemara fabrics. If all that doesn’t get you emailing then take a peek at this beauty called ‘Emily’ from the ‘Sacrifice’ EP and before you know it you’ll be clogging up the information superhighway with your hot emerald tips.
Update: Congrats to Peter, Paul and John! (Pity Bjorn didn’t win, drat) KD
