Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 14.03.56

Like The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster covering late-80s The Fall, ‘Go Bricker!’ by Dublin “recessionary post-punk” band That Snaake is a vehement, breakneck effort that tells the story of a drinking session that derails and ends up in an armed coup which overthrows the government and sees random sesh-mots on Ketamine put in charge of executing the entire fisheries board (remember: your imagination is everything, folks). That Snaake’s first single, the track – heavily based around the themes of drug abuse, religious oppression and poorly conceived guerrila coups – now comes with a video to boot, marking the remastered edition of the band’s wonderfully frenzied debut EP, At Swim One Stone.

That Snaake are also gearing up for the release of A Litany of Failures, a forthcoming, four-track collaboration compilation cassette release with fellow Irish slacker-rock quasi-luminaries Shrug Life, Oh Boland and Junk Drawer, including the following dates:

June 8: McHughs, Belfast
June 9: Sweeney’s, Dublin
June 10: The Print Shop, Cork (TBC)
June 11: Roisin Dubh, Galway
