Hope all is well…
Lily O Brien is four years old today…Hozier’s debut record is four years old yesterday, Cormac O Briens 21st was four years ago yesterday also…was a busy time…time..a funny thing.
Lily has the ear…Zach to a degree but Lily has the ear…i kind of knew it when she was maybe 2 and a half when i brought her to Marlene Enrights instore for the launch of her choice nominated debut album “placemats and second cuts “ .. Zach was at a birthday party and lily never really flinched from my side for the 30 minutes or so of the lovely gig…here again if you missed it…fair feat for a fledgling…if she didnt dig it though the whole house would have known so major kudos to Marlene!
Now she has Mamma mia soundtracks and george ezra on the go in the car…four today, not too bad a start musically Lily girl… jees ABBA were the real deal weren’t they…what hooks…Zach likes a bit of Bowie ( which will please some of ye) starman and ch ch ch ch ch changes been two of his favs….Bonnies a bit small yet but bops around in her carseat to almost everything.

The record by KODALINE has a very good title “ the politics of living” which i would imagine in their world is so apt…all our worlds now…but theirs, frightening rubbish goes on id say.
