Welcome to Dundalk

[With apologies for the rapid and disorientating change in tone from previous blog… so it goes...]

In my role as part-time music producer to the stars I’ve come in contact with some big names, Chris De Burgh, Sade, The Wurzels… all the quality acts that have been making such good quality music over the past few years.

But of all my associations, the one of which I’m most proud is that with the now legendary Turf Brothers. Few names command such respect, and indeed 6 figure sums as the Turf Brothers do in the 21st century. Their recent reunion and subsequent world tour has been selling out some of the biggest and most prestigious venues in the world from Djibouti to Vanuatu.

Most recently described by a respectable music journalist as sounding like “a mouse farting through a tuba”, the Turf Brothers have consistently been “pushing the envelope” of the musical, creative and indeed metaphysical boundaries of the 21st century.

Having spent some of their earlier years in relative obscurity they graduated to the mainstream of rock super stardom with their 1971 release, “Where’s the Milk?“, which combined a tribute to the Dali Lama’s struggle for a free Tibet, with a whimsical look at modern dairy practices.

They experienced some low points, ranging from Daniel O’s brief and disastrous marriage to former wonder woman star – Lynda Carter, and Dilbert Turf’s long running battle with his Benilyn addiction.

Many believe their greatest moment was winning all of the Nobel Peace Prizes in the same year, others believe it was their simple and elementary proof that the moon is indeed made of cheese.

In any case, most believe that these will be eclipsed by their most recent work, recorded behind very tightly closed doors in a bog in Dundalk.

And so without further procrastination and confabulation, it gives me great pleasure to present to you the long awaited Welcome to Dundalk.
