One of the UK and Ireland’s loveliest independent music sites, Ragged Words, is turning its attentions to organising gigs. With a talented group of writers who really know their stuff and a starting line-up as good as this one, chances are we’re in for a treat. I’m especially looking forward to sibling duo, The Holy Roman Army, whose debut album ‘How the Light Gets In” was definitely one of the most under-rated of the year.

Details and clip below.

The first of many Ragged Words shows (on both side of the Irish Sea) sees Adrian Crowley, The Holy Roman Army & Hunter-Gatherer play Dublin’s Twister Pepper on Sunday December 20. We’re thrilled to have put together a really strong lineup – all three acts are being strongly tipped for a Choice Music Prize nomination when the shortlist is announced in mid-January – so this gig showcases some of the cream of Irish music doing the rounds right now.

It all kicks off at 8pm on and tickets are priced at a budget-beating, pocket-pleasing €10 (plus a small booking fee) and are on sale now through tickets.ie. They’re also available from Road Records, City Discs and Plugd

A nice cup of tea and a sit down with Greg Wilson

Legendary Electro-Funk DJ Greg Wilson is in town tomorrow night to share his wealth of experience and industry knowledge with an audience in The Twisted Pepper over a nice cup of Barrys Tea before taking to the decks for an extended set. 

Lucky me got to interview Greg for Totally Dublin’s website so if you’re interested in what the man who has been the main influence in the careers of Norman Cook, A Guy Called Gerald and Shaun Rider has to say for himself, you can take a peek here


Greg was also the first person to mix two records together live on television in 1983 on ‘The Tube’, presented by a very young Jools Holland. The clip below is priceless 🙂
