Allow me to share with you a video that was shot in a very small rehearsal space last August in sunny Balbriggan, but for various reasons, has only just made it’s appearance…
Last year, an abundance of Irish music found it’s way onto my itouch. In fact it was the most that had every graced the little durable 7.2mm deep device with it’s presence. From Halves, Solar Bears, The Dying Seconds and The Kill Krinkle Club to BATS, Trails , Villagers and Norabelle, Irish acts would accompany me to and from the aul’ 9-5 and on planes, trains and automobiles around the world.
Requiring a new purpose and target for my underused, little baby Canon, I contacted some of my faves and asked them to choose a song by one of their favourite Irish acts. Applying their own style to the song, they would then perform in front of my mic and camera.
Based on a very short series of gigs I ran about 6 years ago, I hoped to transfer the fun of the live shows to video, and at the very least to come to better grips with the dusty camera.
THE KILL KRINKLE CLUB were the first to humour me and below you will find their rendition of THE FUNERAL SUITS’ ‘WE ONLY ATTACK OURSELVES’.
Special thanks to audio guru Ciaran Mangan and the band for putting up with being cramped in a 10X5 foot shed with me and my swinging arm…
Kill Krinkle Club
Kill Krinkle Club are Dublin based one part Swedish one part Irish electronic duo.
Justin Commins and Elina Bergman originally met by chance a few years ago in a Dublin bar. Commins had luckily won a coin toss that got him off his night job, thus allowing him to meet his future band mate. His other band at the time called it quits just as Kill Krinkle Club began to take its shape as a side project that soon, as Bergman puts it, “took over everything and everyone.”
Their debut album ABANDON was released in September 2010, a week or so after the below was shot.

Here is an original work by the Kill Krinklers, ’59′ off ABANDON, by Greg Corcoran.
And last but not least, here is the original version of ‘We Only Attack Ourselves’ by The Funeral Suits from a live show in Whelans. Both bands have headed overseas to showcase their wares at CMW and SXSW, respectively, and more of their recordings and updates on live shows can be found by venturing further into the below band links.
