GALWAY PROG-FOLK band My Fellow Sponges today [Thursday November 23] release their new single 'The Schlieffen Plan' and will promote it with gigs around Ireland, including three dates in County Galway.
'The Schlieffen Plan' takes its name from Germany's 1914 military strategy to invade France via Belgium and swiftly take Paris with enough time to turn around and invade Russia before the tsar’s troops were mobilised. The lyrics touch on themes of troubled relationships and mental-health. The song features a "craggy wind section" from Alain Halimi and Mary Morgan.
My Fellow Sponges play Mullarkeys, Clifden, on Friday November 24 at 9pm (free ); The Black Gate Cultural Centre, St Francis Street, Thursday November 30, 8.30pm (admission €10 ); and Campbell's Tavern, Cloughanover, Saturday December 9, 8.30pm (€8 ). See www.myfellowsponges.com
