The Pub Landlord - twenty years of ‘behaving appallingly humbly’

image preview

IT WAS 20 years ago this year that Al Murray introduced the world to the Pub Landlord, his pompously loveable, slightly jingoistic, opinionated font of ‘common sense’, who espouses a ‘Thank God I’m an Englishman’ view of the world, and is hopelessly in love with being British!

The Feeling of a ‘homecoming’ as chart-topping UK band comes to Mayo

image preview

The BRIT School in London has become famous over the last few years for producing many UK chart stars such as Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Kate Nash, Adele and Katie Melua. It was also the starting point for Dan Gillespie Sells and Richard Jones of The Feeling in their rise towards the summit of the recording industry. The group – many of whom have Irish heritage – came together as a band doing cover versions at a ski resort in the Alps and indeed took their name from a bar in Paris. 2006 was the highpoint for the Feeling as their debut album Twelve Stops and Home had sales in excess of 1.5 million and singles such as “Sewn”, “Fill My Little World” and “Never Be Lonely” all became Top ten hits. Lead singer Dan Gillespie Sells is the product of County Mayo parents and as such the Feeling are delighted to be playing The Royal Theatre Castlebar on Saturday November 29 in what is sure to be a sold-out show.
