Why have I only found about these lads now and what happened to them? I just got the album Heartworm and it's been on repeat for the last week. Definitely the most under rated Irish band.

I saw them live a couple of years back (during the summer, incidentally). Was quite drunk for much of the affair but do remember the flashing lights and the frontman dangling his flab over the front of the stage at every opportunity.
Also notable for the horrific warm-up act Jinx Lennon, who had a pint tossed at him and spent the final five minutes of his set screaming "**** Limerick" at the audience.

Whipping boy - one third of the holy trinity of irish music that should have been huge in the 90s- Kerbdog and Rollerskate skinny being the other two.
Mckee and Page were the Morrissey/Marr of irish music i reckon.

Eh, I don't think so.
I know on A Natural there's a lyric where he says he's recently been diagnosed with "acute paranoid schizophrenia" but I'm pretty sure it's just that; a lyric.

Serves him right. He falsely announced a member of the audience at a New Inn gig in the 1990s was disabled.
