Mclusky were a band between 1999 and 2005, in which time they made a few friends and three albums. Slow-forward 14 years and, thanks to the uncanny pull of nostalgia and gravity, they have made more friends but no more albums.
Originally persuaded to reform – like ham – to help save a local music venue and for other vaguely charitable reasons, Mclusky* is the band but with Damien Sayell of The St. Pierre Snake Invasion (who incidentally have an album out this year) playing bass and singing and is loads better (technical term) than it used to be, nostalgia be twatted. They're set to play Belfast on September 6 at Voodoo. To Hell With Good Intentions.
