Scribble

The Lobby, Union Quay

9pm
€7


Scribble emerged fully formed in Dublin in July 2001, though they had all played together in various formats in Cork and Galway. Just one year later, released their debut album 'Thought for the Day' to critical acclaim. Led by charismatic Corkman Declan Carey, Scribble produce what has been labelled 'strangely compelling' and 'bristling, intelligent guitar pop.' Neil Cremen plays drums, Dara Curran plays keyboards and Yvonne Igoe supplies vocals and melodica. They've gigged in some of the country's top venues, including Whelans and The Cobblestone in Dublin, The Lobby and the Half Moon Club in Cork City, and De Barras in Clonakilty.

What do Scribble do? From songs about small-town, large-trousered Casanovas ('Barry Sebastian') to winsome tunes about dreams gone sour ('Tuesday Afternoon'; 'Sing Your Song'), Scribble have produced an album with rocking-out energetic guitars and folk-tinged contemplations in equal measure, often within the same song which will make your eardrums tickle in anticipation.
