No Monster Club aka Babby Aherne are taking the Ash route to single releases this year. On the first of every month in 2017 the prolific Dubliner is going to release a new AA-side single as part of the Encyclopedia Project. They’re all going to be free/pay what you want. “As I’ll be utilising an […]


Bobby Aherne returns in his No Monster Club guise with typically idiosyncratic news: A new song called ‘Hippocampus Circus Maximus’ off a new EP – and their first 7″ – called Where Did You Get That Milkshake? It’s pretty much as you’d expect from No Monster Club: a brilliantly catchy, jangly pop song. “No I […]

The Late David Turpin – ‘Fur’ Directed by Turpin himself, alongside Mark Duggan – who shot the wonderful cover for We Belong Dead – ‘Fur’ is one of the more beautifully simplistic videos of the year. It’s been a good 2013 for the singer – he talked about the year last week, in our 2013 […]

No Monster Club are working on a new, 13-track album, the follow-up to Dublin (if you don’t count the 46-track posthumous collection). ‘(I Think You Could Get Away With This Carry On When You’re In) The Sun’ is our latest taster of what we can expect. They released the Community Games compilation album with three […]

Popical Island has released its first 12″ record in The Community Games. Featuring tracks from Ginnels, No Monster Club, Cave Ghosts and Grand Pocket Orchestra, it fits right into the Popical barnyard. The album is launched in Whelan’s tomorrow, Saturday. It costs €5 or €10 with a copy of the record, which is just ridiculous […]

But this is the real deal, the full hog: three tracks each from the four bands, which, if my maths adds up, comes to 12 songs. It’s going […]

What we have here is a taster of a 12-track, four-band album that’s due out early next month (the LPs ship out on April 5). Grand Pocket Orchestra, No Monster Club, Cave Ghosts and Ginnels are the bands playing the Community Games. I used to really dislike GPO but either I’ve mellowed towards them or […]

Big tune alert!!! If you don’t instantly go back to listen to ‘Damn The Weather’ and shout out, with fists in the air, the line, “I’m not a loser when I got a fucking ice-cream,” then you’ve failed at music. No Monster Club had a pretty prolific last 12 months, a year which saw them […]

Have you heard about Quarter Inch Collective’s Quompilation #1? Thirteen Irish artists, including Squarehead, Spies, Kid Karate, Patrick Kelleher and many more, covered their favourite song of 2010. We get two versions of Squarehead’s ‘Fake Blood’ (Nialler9 readers’ favourite song of the year too), a Rihanna cover and a Kanye West cover that I thought […]
