Should've Stayed In Tour - Dublin (Compilation Sessions)
Coming out of the alleyways of Galway with a chip on their shoulder and the hangover from hell, Dead Horse Jive are an original Rock n’ Roll/ Hard Rock band who bring energetic live performances to the crowd on their never-ending quest to have a good time.
The band formed in 2016 when guitarist Blind Mick Joyce brought in frontman Darragh O’Brien and 5 star maitre D John Martin Tierney’. ‘It was nice to have someone who brought a touch of class to the proceedings’, noted Mick, blissfully unaware of the other’s reputations.
Dead Horse Jive bring punk infused rock n’ roll to the stage with Darragh’s sneering vocal style and Mick’s searing guitar solos. The band’s sound is filled out by the galloping bass of Calum Goodway and obnoxious drumming of Ricky Martin ‘The Blaggard’ Collins.
Their lyrics discuss the everyday goings on of being the least-refined rock band in town, and attempts to sharpen their image with unfashionable 3-piece suits do little to improve their standing.
After returning from three sets at Electric Picnic ’17, the band entered the studio to record new material. They will be releasing their newest EP in Summer 2018 and touring the country. Check them out down the alleyway next to a pub near your soon.
