A new video from Rarely Seen Above Ground, cut with footage from two gigs; one on the homeground of Kilkenny, the other at the Workman’s Club in Dublin. The song is called Be It Right Or Wrong and is taken from the forthcoming second album.
It seems weird to no longer refer to RSAG as a solo artist! Jeremy Hickey joined forces with Colm O’Caoimh recently to expand on what was already a massive sound, with Paul Mahon providing visuals. Drums are the lynchpin but there’s so much more, from guitar to electronics, that set the first RSAG album Organic Sampler heads above other contenders on its release in 2008.
This has been a pretty busy year for RSAG and the gigs are coming thick and fast. December is chocka with top-notch shows, starting with the Jagermeister Freezer Sessions at the Pavilion in Cork on 8 December and Dolan’s in Limerick on the 9th. Then on the 15 December RSAG play Whelan’s with support from the tremendous Bantum, followed by DeBarra’s in Clonakilty on December 18 and a Christmas show back at home in Cleeres’ of Kilkenny on 23 December. Finally, RSAG will support And So I Watch You From Afar with Toby Kaar and The Great Ocean Divide at The Forum in Waterford on 30 December.
RSAG’s latest single This Winding Sheet is still available to download free from Bandcamp.
