The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock return with a new piece called “The Bullet in the Brick”, released today, the calendar centenary of the Easter Rising.
Featuring the same electric guitar orchestra used in “Lockout”, the band’s multi-movement work set for release later in 2016, “The Bullet in the Brick” explores various aspects of the Easter Rising such as the bombing of Dublin by the British gunship “The Helga”, the murder and attempted cover-up of activist Francis Sheehy Skeffington, and finally the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
“Incredibly moving and unflinching in its execution, this latest example of innate creativity from Spook of the Thirteenth Lock furthers cements their status as one of the most unmissable acts in Ireland today.” – State Magazine
