    Mix is dogshit, nothing to do with the band! Bass way way over arching the guitars. Doesn't do them justice. They are a superb live band!

  • Sinéad Reilly

    I love how they sound better live than in the tracks and they sound amazing on track. So happy Irish talent is finally being showcased. Been a fan of these for a good while now well done lads

  • Luke Berrie

    Kinda surreal how I saw these lads to a room of about 200 people merely a few weeks ago. Last night they performed on America’s most popular late night talk show. So proud 🇮🇪

    George Washington was murdered and Adam Weishaupt, the creator of Illuminati, didn't go to Hungary but took his place in the WhiteHouse! Video: "Fake World Leaders" …PLUS Queen Elizabeth I was a male. The staff wanted to manipulate the next ruler. Elizabeth 1 died when a child but King Henry didnt know. He banged so many woman, he didn't pay attention.

  • Artemis a

    Thanks, I am pretty sure I don't need your advice, don't waste your attention, you won't solve anything,
    . I am pretty sure that if you copy me all the time, it means, not only that I look better than anyone you have around, but also that I know better! So, why waste your energy on me???
    Go on stealing, my moves, put the one beside you, dress like me, say that she is me, walk like me, move like me, that's what you are good at, and looks like you have have no shame in lying, and no self esteem, because respect towards me (physical beauty, not imaginary(ID )) is something you can't even reach to understand, you only respect money, which you call beautiful, though she's not, so then all I ask is respect for yourself, my only hope to have a little peace in this life!

    They poured over these lyrics for months, weeks and weeks went by autumn turned to spring before they finally captured the feeling they really wanted, typical dubs


    Awful. I'm not into punk anyway but the vocals have no punch whatsoever. It's like watching a band at school or something, Jesus.

    It is funding the best plan with the correct amount of the best money, for the best reason -this strategy couldn't have a more publicly discussable topic.

    This product is therefore more like an advertising campaign. Day in, day out; it provides a positive social or individual pastime, good for piece of mind andsolidarity. The product is able to be a platform for the best error, water quality. The product and advertising strategy go global. Another country chooses the engraving images they want on their pop cans, puts their web site in their language and culture, with their water quality issues and uses that to air their TV show ontheir media. Perhaps even The Scratch Can bricks and mortar store covering local technical documents for their local technical proposals to government.

    Section 4: Bar Up endgame payout

    This next section explains a highly enviable consequence of going cash free. "Bar Up endgame payout".

    Government realises that welfare isn't handled satisfactory, which leaves it to be handled by private business. They have tried to give money to those private businesses, however inflation makes that impossible. If one was to know that in June 2020 the whole state of California was going cash free, the inflation of that situation couldbe considered "solved" 8-12 months prior. Government assistance with welfare to, for example, BAR UP, is possible when inflation is solved. To find BAR UP, search "Pub stops of Halifax and Calderdale", however in charge is someone with the first name BAR and last name UP. Anybody in the know about this format of institution, hates the new cop on the beat going "Who's head?" "Who's in charge?" Like learn about banking and grasp what type of person qualifies best to be an "Anonymous Benefactor"? Then analyse the good job you've done asking that question for your mandate for the last 50 years. Giventhe statistical ramifications of replacing that anonymous benefactor, with typically a less respected "the joke is I can't fill in ID forms understandably".

    Granted that last section was highly speculative, its short on data to support the examples. Really what I'm trying to say is prior to going cash free, an areaexpects a date of execution. Upon witnessing a date of execution to go cash free, people or groups of people dealing with the shortfalls of welfare, require "transition cash" to help progress out of cash as currency.

    Section 5: final words

    Some phrases I findfunny are "Go play with your soda pop can" "Say it with Scratch Can" "I'm busy, thanks" "I was just playing Scratch Can, I am playing Scratch Can, I'm going to be playing Scratch Can -I don't have free time."

    So, I figured out how to rob all the cash in the world and Fallon's drawers.

    I though of this cool commercial. Onetypical male/female pair sitting on a park bench. Across, a nobbish black man sits next to a very blond. Typical goes "do you think its real love?" Other typical is playing with Scratch Can, replies: "I'm busy, thanks". Quick shot of playing Scratch Can, example, ending in recycling bin.

    Commercial can run irrespective agreement, by way of using stencils (it could be more about nice family time). As a fun recycling game, to clarify theexpectations of the licensing agreement and Water Quality media content. Commercial can be subsidised by government assistance of the environment.

    Yes, this solution can reach the air waves globally TOMORROW. Therefore I found TOMORROWLAND !!! peace -Kristina 126 395 086
    This switched, but I think the city of Ottawa was partially invaded. I think a foreign group over took usual media practises to show an unapproved perspective. I thinkthe group also was looking to take stake in payroll inclusion (http://ip, and payroll practises. I think this offensive to creating "Ottawa's Sovereign Currency" was exclusively conditional on falsifying my banking. Just saying "blabbing" about the situation of "Ottawa's Sovereign Currency" could have been met with violent consequences. (but she was skinny cause she was a dancer). The person responsible needs to be referred to as "iTAN" (think LGBT inclusive pitch with LGBT flag on the "about us" section of iTAN website). I only care cause I need my banking for the purposes of Scratch Can. Also I don't want to be "wiped off" the registry. I just checked the entire country, thefinancial invasion was just the city of Ottawa, they were thinking Montreal next. This plan to sort banking, due to me being too stupid to put together a plan (though I made a fair point about needing "Bar Up") -was stupider.

    Preamble to Memo:
    First, I'd like to apologise for the negative consequences of my last account. Hopefully the memo this account is exclusively used to post, implies "worthwhile".

    Also I'd like to point out that through my preamble is in "slang" English, the memo "Communication Barrier" is moreof an abstract to a Business Plan, in proper enough English to present to a banker/s.

    Next, my history with vital statistics was important for my status as a poster. This strategy has been carried through to up-sell the two products betterunspoken, abbreviated as E and 2yn. The strategy to up-sell those products is referred to as "Bar Up". BAR UP as a format, makes a cops versus robbers truce possible, given the goal of this memo -fixing water quality through banking. thx, A Moon Shaped Pool. Lets try to explain BAR UP this way. Is BAR UP a person, place or thing? Much like Coca-Cola -YES. The person whose name is first name BAR last name UP, is the son of Thom Yorke from Radiohead, it is a pub found on a map in Halifax and Calderdale and it is a type of banking format, in that this brand embellishes their sales of pub treats with health relatedproducts that undermine an inadequate health insurance system.

    Last, involved with the cops versus robbers truce, is the thirdparty, The Engineers. The Engineers are working for The Beverage Consortium; publicly on water quality issues, and privately on creating standard banking. Therefore the cops versus robbers truce is defined by The Engineers opinionabout effective working expectations; when defining what format Bar Up adheres to. One could expect the engineers to be along the lines of the most people making it to digital currency; as the safest most stable working conditions for them.

    Imagine with, one side of the engineers -robbers, on the other side -police. The only question anyone want to ask and haveconfirmed by the representative of an area of bank accounts (a non existent job) is: "Is the accounts Bar Up". The safe answer to hear back is "yes". In other words the bank accounts sells healthy enough products and services.

    This sounds drastic and sudden, however given that these four products: 1. Scratch Can 2. The Beverage Consortium 3. Scratch Can TV 4. Scratch Can bricks and mortar; (actually implementation is hard to extrapolate due to the general conclusion being for 280 countries globally, and they aren't in a similar state of industrialisation. However the components lead to improvements in sales, task designation, task definition, technological communication and skills and other backbones of industrialising a region.) Getting back tohow poorer regions try to syphon American Excess wealth. Defining these products in a region can curb the loss in sales from unhealthy exports. The supply side of risky products (unwelcome international imports) can be phased into a deconstruction process, which involves subsidising the loss in revenue , with an investment in the economies information, skills and productivity. Transferred to those four bank accounts, with that prerogative. The subsidised finances have a banking and mediarecipient with those four Scratch Can bank accounts, implementing the investment/subside in as non-fascist and pro-diplomatic a format as is obvious.

    bla bla bla, I fell though a table and have a Bar Up scar.

    Section: Scare you mother!

    To summarise the engineers situation, there are 250 000 private business and welfare bank accounts. The engineers will inevitability notice banking of interest to authority. This situation is challenging, to be able to format a general plan isn't possible. It is likely that Edmonton would produce the best comparative model; wealth, small business, apartment availability and other greatinfrastructure due to wealth and a huge flat open space, a natural exclusivity due to a dominant aboriginal skin color. Edmonton probably turns the best profit for their Bar Up, and GNP. Leading to "that situation goes the right way in Edmonton because they have easy finances". For example the best situation for welfare retribution, is for a supply amount of coke to be handed back to Bar Up, but Bar Up preferences to agree with the local police on going after small time possession. Why? Tactics that scare mom are fantastic for welfare subsidisation! So where this truce has to deal with the psychological factor of women never making money irrespective of an assigned male, generalformatting isn't possible. My advice to police, take what they allow, its better then things were going to go, as police mandate strive to match medical mandates. Honestly police being allowed to check drug imports and only destroying E, is basically as safe as the traffic, E you never sleep as deep again, coke is a stimulant. Also the engineers opening embellished bank accounts for transfer find the verification of BAR UP, less surprising.

    Small point: Does government follow their own rules, representing their citizens. Examples to the contrary… are whatever. Howeverexamples that are like Abel's Proof; x^5 can't have a general equation. The solution is a solution isn't possible. One could use the term the example is a "block", nobody cares, nobody should care. Simply, raise the bar.

    Memo: "Communication Barrier" Sept 20th, 2018
    The Economist "Interference Day"
    apr 13-19
    p.59 How Amazon uses AI
    "Amazon's SIX-PAGE memos are famous"

    Section 1: title

    The title of my document refers to my experience having completed two years of engineering, wanting to be able to innovate better answers to energy problems. Engineersare not the major constraint to solutions to this environmental problem, or many others (like water). The real problem is Engineers, as of recently are more able to verify the technical claims of their textbooks, due to the computer's capacity to crunch data. However changing technical textbooks, agreeing tochange technical definitions; is a cause without funding or a mandate. No more! we can all goal water quality and make the necessary changes to communication.

    Section 2: product introduction

    The first part of fixing engineering through comprehensive media is a simple licensing agreement. The licensing agreement is for "Scratch Can" it is in the picture, it is a 2 in 1, "foil engraving art scraper" and the aluminum can. The most notable aspectof adding Scratch Can to the economy, is now you can kill about 2 hours, comfortably distracted by your soda pop can. The product looks nice and polished and has a patent. When you play Scratch Can, you're playing with Bianca (if female) and Bianco (if male). So just metaphorical associations with foreignwords for "white" and "banking". Lets never go back to a world without "Smut Beer".

    Given the additional utility (customer satisfaction) aluminum beverage packaging would now acquire thepurchaser. The sales of drinks in aluminum can packaging should increase. A higher quality, higher price demographic of the aluminum packaged drink market is possible; and might confront health related issues like weight management. This means a plausibly dramatic increase in the number of skews in the domestic, national and global spheres. (Note, activated charcoal neutralises toxins and medication.) This product is brought to market like a regional advertising campaign for Waterquality, decisions about skews and manufacturing is decided internally by each country. This is more of a discussion about water quality, and less a stock component.

    Discussing water quality is different at this time; because it is possible to change to digital currency with the hardware that exists in the American economy. Thereare enough smartphones to change to using a smartphone as a cash register, and the option of a new ID banking card. The error of dominance in the American Economic system, is additional investment for additional returns, this is true of any value added process for all the resources. Their can not be a betterstrategy of transitioning an economic system (on the global economic scale) then this content about how to stabilise resource data.

    Why? Water is the most tangible resource, as concluded in this document, water is the best discussion topic to solve, solving water issues through solvingbanking divergences fixes this present communication barrier. Improving the technical communications barrier, makes necessary discussions about risky global natural (or human) disasters possible. On the micro level -with the most control and safety, on the macro scale -pro employment stability, consumer spending and education. Initially this strategy provides the best stigma towards other people, the stigma being "making it", which can initially imply, first witnessing playing Scratch Can with the TV, getting internetidentity cards, adding tap payment to the cards.

    For drink companies this extent of product amalgamation wasconsidered an error. There isn't standard soda, there is a preference for divisions. The reaction to an error is always an error, the error reaction that is offered by Scratch Can is: "What if the goal of the economy was water quality?" Also I'm not saying anyonecares about the correct solution. I'm saying the question, or goaling water quality; produces the perfect censorship for the effective banking solution. Keeps talk lame and easy.

    The goal of the eventual global banking system and water quality are mutual -one is the best discussion, the other possibly offensive. For technical language, withthe assumption of goaling water, to become a common discussion; the information needs to find a reference platform. The job of documents on a web page, minimally doing no harm to the goal of water quality, was the balance sheet known as The Beverage Consortium. The Beverage Consortium represents companiesmaking use of the Scratch Can Licensing agreement, or interest groups wanting to assist with a world with better water.

    The combination of playing Scratch Can and talking about an economy whose goal is water quality, combines to create an example driven television show. Five peopleor animated people give their reactions to issues, with the goal of water quality: "employment isn't at a surplus" "will brita lose money" "we can't put those blueprints on the internet". Also combining the platform of Scratch Can with the content of water quality, could be bricks and mortar. Upon watching the Scratch Can TV show and learning technical language; a store could sell the Scratch Can product and put localissues like waste management, K-12 curriculum, The Nano Home (by Tata group India), into technical document format; game drink store.

    Section 3: technical communications

    The focus of the content of The Beverage Consortium references, is people learning technical language with a common goal. People would learn technical language using the example of the top priority resource to redistribute -water. Apply that pattern to statistics, graphing, with the capacity to agree on theconclusion -because they agree on the same goal, "water quality".

    Essentially technical language isorganising "functions" to obtain a goal or output. Everyone who considers the variables (the inputs into the rules/functions) that Scratch Can facilitates concludes successes like "no cash" and "money as inventory statistics" -could be obtained goaling water. My solution has been verified since March 2018.

    The present bankingsystem can't be converged. If people had adequate banking, that would imply statistical expectations concerning their resource needs and distribution, could be extrapolated. No predictions from government about voters' future consumer requirements seem possible. A converged banking system wouldhave to provide a way of being a Steward of the environment.

    Scratch Can can find improvements in the area of resource management, as it can transition the global banking system exclusively digital (a recent technical option). The strategy for this time consumingsuccess is to converge technical language through common participation, out and about, and using TV and other media.

    The strategy solves several major obstacles. Rank can be stabilised (I rank best, I'm the meat on wiki for the licensing agreement, I think that job title is "Scratch Can Facilitator"). It can result in newidentification to platform new banking.

    Top down approach; the bank teller, investor, banking associate knows where the money for a deposit into all the types of bank accounts is from -the item on her desk. A depositstrategy, out of the Beverage Consortium balance sheet to typical people, with all the types of bank accounts represented (estimated at 75 000 given 5000 US banks). This was done to establish general formatting for any and all person and business assets, given a goal that advances waterquality best, transitioning to exclusively digital banking globally. Solving tricky security features like making use of handwriting.

    Alsobottom up, some sort of app that sends you Internet Identification cards to public or private locality. After taking a smartphone picture of bar codes on specific pop cans. A person can use this app to (without controversy) obtain a plastic picture ID. It has their preferred information, supported in digital format on their smartphone. However eventually if this card were to become currency, by sending an electronic tap payment sticker -both top and bottom asset and identification must crunch a match algorithm. This step of topdown banking information, matching bottom up information is exceedingly controversial and probably a challenge, with a lot of small time-consuming problems. However those issues can be worked through, due to available hardware leading to a short time frame will success (3-5 yrs) and lip servicing bankingas a discussion about water "issues with tissues" (seek your massage). Gold on the ceiling.

    Because Scratch Can is most sold tangible item: aluminum can, water. The moneyScratch Can is associated with is the most tangible money, implying capital doesn't have a conflict of interest due to having compromising information about the assets of their customers. Everyone is a customer of the aluminum can, so this money is the most tangible money to fund banking transition strategies. Unlike a publicly listed company, the amount of money that The Beverage Consortium wants to float, isn't excess profits, but for this scheme more money. The correctamount of investment to solve specific goals concerning "water quality".

    This is a joke, but an amalgamation of US drink companies make this amount of available cash. And more importantly provide us (people of earth) with the same common, intuitive and publicly discussable goal -water: distribution, science andintegrity. Those companies finances make this kind of scheme possible. At a $500 deposit, and 100 accounts per day for the first month… then step it up to 1000 accounts per day… like I mean they make that kind of cash, I'm notnegotiating. Also negotiating might not be the correct term for an investment strategy in reliable, sound, fresh water supplies.

  • Adebayo

    Not long ago I saw these guys at a tiny venue, met them and had chat with them. I even bought the singer a pint 🍺

  • sullivan2339

    This is Total Crap. I even changed speeds-still crap. The only band out of Ireland that ever mattered is …… Not these guys

  • Vika Rotokha

    Fuck the song that played only 2 note and the vocal is like talking nonsense words…
    Worst song ever🤣🤣🤣

  • Jake Perkin

    Like Liam Gallagher and Ian Curtis had a one night stand and this beautiful Irish bastard was the outcome.

  • Caoimhín Ó Caoimh

    I don't even think this is punk, it reminds me so much more of old school Kings of Leon. The instruments anyways. Also the bass is out of tune slightly.

  • CitricRex

    The song and the performance were damn good, but are they all stoned out of their minds or just kind of weird?

  • David Evans

    great energy, nice bass and some interesting lyrical snippets, though I do not claim to understand the gist of what he is talking about. My knock on this song is he does not sing: there is absolutely no melody to his vocals. Nice beat and all but I like a song to have a melodic structure to the lyrics. They do have SOME songs that actually have that but they have about as many from the 5 or so I have heard that do not. This song gets ultimately a "meh" from me despite the obvious cool energy and musicality of the instruments.

  • MD R

    Can’t get enough of this band! Raw – pure – energy! Grian has the perfect voice and he’s fueled by one hell of band. It’s a post punk renewal and I love it.

  • Erline Andrews

    People criticize Jimmy's over-enthusiasm, but why would you have a band on your show if you don't like their music? I like how he cheers bands on.

  • jemen1709

    As what i can see they (guitarists) both use the Fender Princeton amps. They are essential for their sound. The Telecaster and the jazzmaster do the rest 😉
