Default The Cork Music Show Fight Club Volume 2

Welcome to The Cork Music Show Fight Club. First rule of The Cork Music Show Fight Club? Tell everyone about The Cork Music Show Fight Club.

Last week we test piloted The Cork Music Show Fight Club with the basic premise being that a couple of bands/artists will be entered in a poll and you vote which act you want to hear on the show that week. We only ran the pilot "fight" for a few days but we got a good few voters and plenty of thread views.

This week we are pitting last weeks winners Toy Soldier vs newcomers to the scene Love Street in a bid to start a rivalry between the two bands who both boast former members of Cork band Exit The Street.

Early in its infancy the Cork Music Show Fight Club has already garnered a reputation as being unforgiving, even brutal. Will the bands ever play together? Will they ever even speak again after what could be a fight to the death? Who knows!

Toy Soldier VS Love Street

The Weigh-in

Toy Soldiers Stats


Toy Soldier is an Irish based Electropop trio with an addictive groove, capturing a summer vibe. Think of a beach party with Passion Pit, Cut Copy and Hot Chip all invited.

In their short lifespan Toy Soldier have toured in Europe and the USA, featured on an ‘Ireland’s Hottest Acts’ CD in Hot Press Magazine and have been lauded by BBC radio DJ Tom Robinson on his show ‘BBC Introducing’.

Love Street Stats


"With a musical sound that encompasses alternative rock to modern sensual soul, Love Street is a four-piece band comprised of Australian singer/pianist Sarah Reeve, drummer Ronan McCormick, guitarist Rory O’Brien and bassist Barry O’Brien. In 2011 they built their own recording studio in Cork, Ireland where they are recording and rehearsing their original songs. Love Street have recently debuted live to exceptional reviews from audiences and critics and are currently organizing more gigs for the rest of 2011."

(as in get voting)

The Cork Music Show airs on 100.5FM between 4pm and 5pm on Sundays and aims to play music from Cork acts as well as highlighting what gigs are on that week. The show also has an artist on every week for an interview and to take part in The Cork Music Show Challenge, the toughest quiz known to man.

Are Toy Soldier about to lose their (metaphorical) crown?
