Story of … yet another Irish band putting their amps on standby.

Story of a Hair

Story of a Hair sadly announced their split about two weeks ago which has come as a bit of a shock to some people. These guys seemed to have been around for quite some time, possibly even before I even moved to Dublin for college ages ago and before I knew anything about a music scene. They always seemed to be at the fore of the Irish scene and many bands really looked up to them.  Their “Cheap Rate” album is a superb debut record also (currently giving it a blast through my MEGA new Creative headphones).  I was a big fan on their jagged guitar styles which made them stand out from everyone else.  A unique mixture of Sleater Kinney and a poppier Sonic Youth is how I’ll describe their sound.  Brilliant pop songs and I really can’t wait to see what they do next!

They have a new recording on their  myspace “Hold on Holden”  which is brilliant. It’s available for free on and wish them well on !
