Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner made this album under the name Big Red Machine. Guests include Taylor Swift, Ben Howard, Sharon Van Etten, Lisa Hannigan, This Is The Kit and Fleet Foxes. Some very fine songs on it.…
There's a new EP out from Gorillaz. Just the three songs mind you, but sure beggars can't be choosers.…
Butterflies and concerts are not a good mix really, is the moral of the story. (Source:…)
And the incident prompted this letter, many years later, to the Guardian:
This what the late Charlie Watts had to say about it:
Concert promoter Andrew King explains:
I was watching some of The Rolling Stones famous Hyde Park gig the other night on TV and noticed all the butterflies. What's with all the butterflies, I thought. Jagger felt it would be nice to release them on stage as a tribute to Brian Jones, but it was a bit of a shambles...
This is on RTE1 at 9.30 this evening, really looking forward to it. It's directed by Emer Reynolds who also made The Farthest, which is an excellent film about the NASA Voyager missions.
The first Stones album I listened to was my Dad's copy of this. The octagonal shape was a novelty. There was a dedication to Brian Jones on the back and it opened with Jumpin' Jack Flash. I always skipped 2000 Light Years From Home (weird) and Ruby Tuesday (boring). #RIPCharlie
This is gas. I must show it to my teenage son, just to crack him up. Or elicit an apathetic grunt.…
Very sad news about one of the great rock and roll icons, a wonderful drummer and an exceptional dresser. When asked once what his problems with hippies was, Charlie Watts said: 'I wasn't a great one for the philosophy and I thought the clothes were horrendous.' RIP Charlie.
The best sports photos don't always have to be ones of action on the pitch. Great work @INPHOjames 📷…B
There was a good physical edge to that brilliant hurling final today, so here is a categorization of altercations ranked from softest to hardest: 1. An exchange 2. Afters 3. Tussle 4. Fracas 5. Fisticuffs 6. Shemozzle 7. Melee 8. Brawl
Now this is how you do an album-beer pairing snap 👏…U
This is my favourite Tom Waits song. Apart from every song on Closing Time of course.…
New music from Parquet Courts is always welcome.…
This is a humdinger. It's got new music from Jungle, Big Red Machine, Curtis Harding, Deap Valley, DARKSIDE and Nightmares on Wax. It's got old music from The Walker Brothers, Roxy Music, Eels, Faces and Sun Kil Moon. And it all works together perfectly.…
Christy's Life On The Road documentary series starts on RTE1 at 9.30 and I've got my Kildare jersey on for it. What a life and what a career. Hoping to hear some good stories from the great man.
I think this is the project I've been most excited about since joining Rascals. It was actually back in March that the first conversations were had about it. Now it's finally here, hurrah!…
Happy birthday Robert Redford. For a long time I thought it was Zach Galifianakis in this gif but it's actually you.
Breeders on Sky is really good, especially if you're a parent. Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard are great but it's the supporting cast who really bring a touch of class. Patrick Baladi (Neil from The Office) is fantastic, as is Alun Armstrong as Paul's old man.
My girlfriend lost a very important handbag at @Stendhalireland - containing her US Passport. We’re due to fly out tomorrow morning to visit her family who she hasn’t seen since the COVID outbreak. Please retweet and help us locate it. We can offer a small reward.

The contempt shown by the government to the live entertainment and event industry is inexcusable. Across the UK and Europe the resumption of concerts, festivals and nightclubs reopening are happening with clear plans and safeguards. Here? Nothing. #ReopeningDateWANTED
Summer's not over yet! 🍺☀️ Well, okay fine it probably is. Still, we'll have the annual mid-September Indian summer to look forward to though. This is a brand new beer to our core range and, if I may say so, it's pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.a
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have a new album on the way, 17 years after the brilliant Raising Sand. The album is called Raise The Roof, produced by T Bone Burnett, and it's out in November. And there's a tour next year too...…
New on @SongExploder it's New Slang by The Shins, for a proper nostalgia buzz. And the story behind a beautiful song of course.…
This was such a great read. If you think you've probably read all you need to read about the Beatles, well you'd be wrong. It's as much about social history and pop culture as anything else. Funny, mischievous, poignant, revealing: you don't even need to be a fan of the Fab Four.
Series 3 of Rust to Riches is now on Netflix. Looking forward to seeing what they've done with the second XNR they got their hands on. Car restoration escapism at its finest. 🚗�Cl
Hurling should be an Olympic sport. #kilkenny #Cork #hurling
I demand precise details, and pics, of James Vincent McMorrow brewing this beer. I'm picturing him sitting by the mash tun, strumming a guitar and singing This Old Dark Machine. If that didn't happen, I want my money back. As for the beer, it's a top quality tasty brew James! 🍺F
More incredibly good music from Australia 🇦�@maplegliderer is Melbourne singer-songwriter Tori Zeitsch and this is her stunning debut LP. 'There aren’t many bangers on the album, you just have to sit there with your thoughts' she says herself. Very…aK
Great timing: nearly a year to the day since the Oireachtas Golf Society session in Clifden. Meanwhile, it's illegal for people to dance at a wedding and pregnant women are still seeing their partners prevented from attending maternity care appointments.…
Inhuman Resources on Netflix is damn good stuff. Cantona is great, really impressive, to the extent that you soon ignore or forget that it's Eric Cantona because he inhabits the role so well.
Behind enemy lines before the match. It's the hope that would kill ya, but c'mon Kildare! 🏳d
Excellent articulation by @Nialler9 of the frustration felt by many. Sadly the government are showing the same contempt for the live event industry as they are for hospitality. Over 70% of the pop. vaccinated: what is the point of ongoing restrictions?…
Angel Olsen has covered another 80s classic: Safety Dance by Men Without Hats. The song was written in protest against bouncers banning pogo dancing to new wave music in clubs after lead singer Ivan Doroschuk was kicked out of a club. I did not know that.…
The superb Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge by Mudhoney has been remastered and reissued. It was released five weeks before Nevermind but is every bit a classic of the genre. The CD/vinyl has all the usual bonus stuff, the liner notes make for great reading.…
First time on Keem Beach, Achill, with two reluctant swimmers. What an incredibly beautiful beach. It's added to my list of favourites: Derrynane in Kerry, Allihies and Barleycove in Cork, and Maghera Beach in Donegal. All amazing spots with even just a hint of good weather 🌞N
Big Red Machine, Fleet Foxes and Anaïs Mitchell. Magical stuff altogether.…
This is a really decent lightly smoked helles from @galwaybeer 🍺🇩🇪 Maybe even a little too drinkable, but I'm on my hols so what the heck.jPr
The legendary gatekeeper of all things old skool 90s dance music, @DecPierce, has released a banger of a tune that wouldn't sound out of place on #BlockRockinBeats or in a dance tent on Saturday night at EP 🎶🕺�…6TF
Only one kind of beer for a humid evening like this and that's a sessionable IPA. If you can find one with a 'desert-island-lush-vegetation-it's-fierce-humid' theme, then that's a major bonus. Pirate Bay from @YellowBellyBeer is an absolute cracker it has to be said 🍺🏝️☀️🏴‍xwI
I'm pretty sure the last heatwave we had was on the exact same dates in 2013 because it was also the very first Longitude at Marlay Park, July 19 - 21. The main acts were Phoenix, Foals, Vampire Weekend, Villagers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a 3D concert with Kraftwerk.
New music out today from The War on Drugs with a new album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, out October 29. You can get to see them at the 3 Arena next April 14th.…
Nice afternoon for a game of football 🏐 Up Kildare �3u
There was a great sketch show on RTE years ago called Stew. One of the characters was an annoying neighbour type, played by @PaulTylak. One of his things was to complain about good weather: "Ah, it's too hot. Too hot.' I still repeat the phrase in my head when it's like today 🌞
Hard Seltzer, NEIPA, Fruited Sour, Bourbon Barrel Aged Quadrupel
