Mollusk - Niall Murphy's other band to headline Citóg

Wed, Jul 29, 2015

Niall Murphy, the man behind Mollusk.

NIALL MURPHY is best known as the leader, vocalist, and songwriter of the great Tuam indie-punk band Oh Boland, but he is hitting such a purple patch these days he needs a second band to explore a different side to his creativity.

That band is Mollusk and they headline the next Citóg night at the Róisín Dubh on Wednesday August 5 at 9pm, and its origins lie in a burst of writing Niall was on early this year.

"I've been writing a lot since last Christmas," Niall tells me. "After maybe two months, I found myself with a whole Oh Boland record - which I've since fallen out with and started to rewrite - and a lot of excess material. With Mollusk I really just wanted to have fun and record some of the stuff I didn't want to do with Oh Boland, along with stuff I felt didn't suit Oh Boland."
