Calling all Kate Bush fans.

The mother of all tribute bands is coming to town.

Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush has featured some of the great artist’s original collaborators and comes highly recommended by Ireland’s foremost Kate Bush expert Sean Twomey who can be heard here interviewing lead singer Mandy Watson on a podcast for his authoritive fan website .

I have 2 FREE tickets to see Cloudbusting in the Button Factory, Dublin 2, on Thursday September 19.

In light of Kate being inspired by Emily Brontë and James Joyce, what is your favourite song which references a literary figure?

The winner will be chosen by my Siamese twin.

Lines MUST close at 2.45pm EXTENDED until 5.15pm MIDNIGHT!

This afternoon.

Beside the Four Courts, Dublin 7.

Workers and supporters celebrating the last day of the Dublin Victorian Fruit and Vegetable Market.

Once the centre of fruit distribution in Dublin, the market closes today for “refurbishment” bidding farewell to stallholders who regularly promised oranges as “big as your head and twice as juicy”.

Mmf.

Haunted Head feat. Hamell On Trial – Big Purple Bruise

Warning: adult content!

Haunted Head is the new project from Wexford-born, Kilkenny-based singer and guitar virtuoso Clive Barnes.

Here he has teamed up with his old touring buddy, the cult New York punk troubadour Ed Hamell aka Hamell On Trial, who delivers a chilling spoken word tale over Clive’s Mellencampian six-string swagger.

The climax is both shocking and droll.

The Haunted Head vinyl EP (top) is available to buy here

Nick says: Killing it.
