Getting Cozy With… Strange Boats!

Strange BoatsWhat I did on my summer holidays 2012.

We made a band and called it Strange Boats. There are four of us. Darragh sings, Rory plays the guitar, Richie plays the 4-string guitar and Davy plays the drums. We are from Tuam. Tuam is a small town in the West of Ireland. We named our band after a song by The Waterboys. We all like The Waterboys. Everyone in Tuam likes The Waterboys. I think the only other band we all agree on are The Cribs. Since the summer we stayed friends and decided to stay in the band and do some recordings. We released a single and an EP and put them on our very own soundcloud page. We also got to star some music videos, imagine that! Things went so good with those that we even recorded an album. We are going to release the album in July 2013. We called it ‘Gnome’ after a poem by Samuel Beckett. He had cool hair. No matter what happens with the band I hope we all stay best friends forever and go out for meals together when we are older. Thank you AMBY for reading our story. You have a nice blog. We will send you on our album when it is all done.
