This week’s edition of Something For The Weekend sees our good friend Rob Flynn taking over and recommending three great, promising bands. Besides fronting rising Irish Indie Punks The Winter Passing, Rob is also involved with Dublin-based DIY label Guys With Beards Records alongside Ian Kelly (Starters)and Seán Reid (Time Spent).
Formed earlier this year, GWB Records has unleashed a handful of releases, produced a zine and held a number of local shows.
If your label or band would like to become a guest writer for Something For The Weekend contact Sean Reid to find out more information.
The reason I picked these bands is because I like the ethics they use for being in a band. I obviously enjoy their music the most, but I like how hard working all three of these bands are. More people need to get behind them because they deserve all the success they get.
The Speed of Film
For Fans Of: Turnover, The Get Up Kids, Run For Cover Records, and DIY Punk.
It was Iano (Starters/Guys with Beards Records) that showed me this band. We listened to their record ‘Chasing Comprehension’ in the practice space Time Spent rehearse in straight through one evening and I was instantly hooked.I pretty much listen to that record every few days, it’s great. Some of the members of TSOF used to be in the band Bearings and Petition. GWB Records will be releasing some material from the band in 2013.
