The BibleCodeSundays – A band we’re watching & listening to!

Picture1
The Irish as a race have given the world some of the most important and influential people in rocknroll history – the likes of Rory Gallagher, Thin Lizzy, U2 and, through descension, The Beatles, The Smiths and more recently Oasis. The influence of traditional music is well acknowledged by all these artists, many of them citing the more traditional artists like The Chieftains, Luke Kelly and The Dubliners as mentors with The Pogues landing somewhere between the two styles. Still nobody to this day has truly married all these into one as naturally and effortlessly as The BibleCodeSundays, with the added influence of growing up in a multicultural London, surrounded by a strong Irish community. This breeds a unique branch of the worlds vast Irish population. The stories, poems and songs that speak of a beautiful landscape and glorious heroes mixed in with the aggressive, dirty streets of day to day London.

The BibleCodeSundays debut album Ghosts of Our Past was born mostly out of frustration that no one band was really hitting the mark. The Pogues had opened a door and nobody was stepping through and carrying on their work as so many bands had done with The Beatles. Included on this debut album are three songs written for Mike O’Dea’s Boston-Irish movie Code of Silence which will be produced by Michael Z Gordon, the producer of the movie Narc which starred Ray Liotta. 17

The band proved to be a popular one on the London Irish scene and were voted winners by readers of The Irish World newspaper for the award of ‘Best Band on London Circuit 2006’. The lads picked up the award at a huge ceremony and after their performance on the night were described as “a breath of fresh air for Irish music.” They were never content to just be a local band playing other people’s music and harboured ambitions of reaching a world-wide audience.

‘The BibleCodeSundays’ name came about from regular sunday gigs and drink-fuelled conversations about conspiracy theories. These weekly gigs/sessions became known as ‘BibleCode Sundays’.
