Anthony Mackey (Large Mound) is now joined by Greg O’Brien (Hot Colossus) on bass, Carroll Reid (Fairuza,
Octopuss Underground) on drums and Chris Duffin on guitar.

Mackey’s lyrics tread a skillful balance between wry, modern satire and defiant social commentator for a darker age. This narrative will be familiar to anyone down with the music of his previous band, indie-rock stalwarts: Large Mound.

Previous album, Still Metal, was the touchstone for the formation of The Middle Ages, albeit a repackaged and rebranded version of Anthony Mackey’s solo album. TMA's set gets added to constantly with one huge catchy rock song after another. The great Irish songbook is being written. Ignore it at your peril.


Recording
Last weekend we went back into Slane Rehearsal Studios, set up a bunch of mics and hit record. Here's Chris playing some proper old school heavy metal!

New Gig Announced
We've been wanting to play a gig with Glimmermen for a while now, since before we were a band. Well it's on now. It's no ordinary gig either. In the comfortable surroundings of the Whelan's upstairs venue for a late show. Plus it is free admission IF you claim your guestlist place by commenting on the event page on facebook.
