The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock have been included in The Irish Times’ “50 best Irish music acts right now”.
There was both eating and drinking in last year’s hugely engaging debut album from these Dublin freak-folk rockers. While it offered proof that Horslips’ warped Celtic acid-rock still had plenty of traction, Allen Bligh (sic) and friends updated and upholstered all the traditional trimmings. A merry banquet of clattering banjos, Krautrock psych-outs and space- age flights of fancy: God only knows what comes next, but it will be well worth hearing – Jim Carroll
The band have also announced a gig at Toner’s in Dublin with The Bastard Rain on May 8th.
