Event Details

"We decided to play in Ireland again in early 2019 as a response to the warm reception which so moved us in June of 2018. We're definitely not planning to resume operations as a working musical combo, though. Once again, we've been taken by surprise by the extent of demand to see the show on February 18th, and we've decided to add one last show in Cork on 19th February.  However, that's it. We've really enjoyed playing and spending happy time together, but we all have other matters needing our attention, and it's to those things which each of us will be returning after this  trip.”

 

“But here, however, it was all about Microdisney’s legitimacy as one of Ireland’s best – if somewhat mislaid – pop groups: songs such as Town to Town, Singer’s Hampstead Home, Birthday Girl, And, Begging Bowl, Are You Happy, Loftholdingswood, and Horse Overboard display equal signs of curdled rage and honeyed melodies…. Welcome back you little rascals” **** The Irish Times.

Cork band Microdisney featuring Cathal Coughlan (vocals), Sean O’Hagan (guitar), Jon Fell (bass) and Tom Fenner (drums) play Cork for the first time in 30 years!

After some 30 years the band reconvened to perform their seminal album, The Clock Comes Down the Stairs at the National Concert Hall and The Barbican in 2018. Having enjoyed that experience, the band will play a fully standing show at Cyprus Avenue as the venue for their final show.

Born of an insecure and troubled Irish emigrant experience of London in the 1980s, the album is dark, acerbic, witty and yet swathed in lush pop. Their unique sound is defined by Cathal Coughlan’s intelligent articulate lyricism together his, and with Sean O’Hagan’s sweet well-arranged pop melodies marking them as a band of fierce intelligence. Widely regarded as the greatest Irish record ever, with John Peel describing it as “the iron fist in a velvet glove” Microdisney’s The Clock Comes Down the Stairs was released on Rough Trade records in 1985, reaching No. 1 in the UK Indie Charts.
