PRESENTED BY PAULINE FREEMAN
The Gandhis have been developing their own unique style of pop quirkiness from their Lucan base since forming in 2004. Writing and singing duties are shared between all four members, Niall Cullen( Bass), Conor Deasy (Guitar), Aidan McKelvey (Guitar) and Bazz O'Reilly (Drums). Inspired by their shared love of all things pop, from the Beatles to the Buzzcocks, James Brown to Roy Orbison, the Clash to the Coral, they have created a sound simultaneously original and familiar. The band recorded an early demo with Steve Shannon (Halfset, Jeff Martin) which was reviewed by Hot Press and received some airplay on Phantom fm, Anna Livia fm and Limerick Live fm, as well as the video being shown regularly on Channel 6's Nightshift program. Over the last two years The Gandhis have cut their teeth on the national live circuit, playing support to touring acts like Electric Six, The Levellers and Hugo Race, (a founding member of the Bad Seeds) as well as home-grown talent such as Republic of Loose, Paddy Casey, Mundy, Declan O'Rourke, Fight Like Apes and Crayonsmith. In Autumn 2007 the band teamed up with Producer Andrew Knightly (66e, Sinead O' Connor, Damien Dempsey, Bell X1) to record their debut single "Zaza". The single will be available as a download only from February 8th 2008, with a launch night in Radio City and a short nationwide tour planned to promote the release. http://www.myspace.com/thegandhis
