Formerly known as God Knows + mynameisjOhn, month we had the pleasure of bearing witness to Limerick’s Rusangano Family live in a filming of the Parlour (in which were also guests) at Whelan’s, Dublin.

Both on and off camera, the guys – one of the featured acts in our 15 for ’15 feature – delivered an electrifying brace of tracks including the equal parts excellent and ethical ‘Wasteman’. Now, ahead of their midnight performance at our second birthday party at Dublin’s Twister Pepper on Saturday, May 2, the trio have released a studio version of the track.

Featuring guitar from Steve Ryan of Windings, the track is a take on the “universal conflict that has played on the conscient of the individual for eternity […] the condensed version is basically this: don’t be a wasteman, just be a good human. It’s that simple.”
