Founded in 2006 in nearby Mallow, Homeless began promoting indie and alternative shows in the city in 2007, hosting local heroes such as I'll Eat Your Face, Ladydoll, Plinth and Silo, among others, as well, as acts from around the country, including Burma Shave, Les Christ Punchers and 20 Bulls Each. In 2009, Homeless co-organised shows with the late Acheron collective, presenting Evile, Anathema, Taake, The Shining, Stand-Up Guy and more.

Dutch “experimetalpunks” Don’t Mention the War take to Ireland next month to back the release of their debut E.P., Whack-a-Mole. The band’s DEEP/MOIST tour will be hitting Galway, Kildare and Cork on its second leg, and will be joined by Galway metallers Burma Shave, Kildare’s Dead Label and more TBC in each town.

February 12th: Sally Long’s, Galway
February 13th: The Phoenix, Kildare
February 14th: Fred Zeppelin’s, Cor
Here’s the blurb:
DON’T MENTION THE WAR – WHACK-A-MOLE E.P.
Recorded in the summer of 2009, Amsterdam/Hilversum experimetalpunks Don’t Mention the War unleash their debut E.P. in January 2010! An amazing fusion of metallic elements, hardcore fury and thoughtful experimentation, Whack-a-Mole E.P. sets the stage for their European tour in January and February 2010, including four Irish dates in mid-February. The E.P. has met with critical acclaim all over Europe, already:
“a prime example of how real screamo should sound” – ashladan.be: 90/100
“Man, man, it leaves you begging for more” – metalfan.nl: 82/100
“Certain to stick around for years” – musicfrom.nl
Galway alternative metallers Burma Shave have been bubbling under the surface of Irish music awhile now, but 2010 should see that all change. A sheer love of music combined with innate creativity and unbreakable passion make these boys a band to watch!
Kildare’s Dead Label join the tour fresh off their victory at the Crypt Trials, Ireland’s only national metal battle of the bands. Though comparatively young as a band, their tightness as a unit points to great things.

A Punk-Rock, Hip-Hop, Jump-Up Ska Soundclash from Manchester UK
From Manchester's dynamic musical landscape comes the most compelling soundclash to rise from the underground for years. Few bands can so smoothly mix dancefloor-savvy elements of reggae, jungle and ska with the rigorous commentary of hip-hop whilst retaining enough grit and aggression to be an active fixture of the UK's punk scene. A true product of their environment - the sound of a thousand city-centre clubnights and student party mash-ups invigorate the righteous fury of distorted guitars and dubby grooves – SB6 create a sound as authentic as it is unique. Looking as at home on a festival stage as they are playing at a warehouse party, the band are retaining their grassroots ideation and positive, unifying message as their music steadily permeates a wider international audience.
Sonic Boom Six return with their third album City of Thieves, the fifth record to be released on their own Rebel Alliance Recordings. Whilst SB6's eclectic punk soundclash staunchly remains far too down-to-earth to ever being described as ‘prog', the album follows the concept of a collection of songs that explore and examine life in a large UK city. From crass consumerism to traffic congestion, lawless youth culture to homelessness, binge drinking to street violence, Laila and the guys cast their pragmatic critique on the state of the nation, embellished by their characteristic positivity and humour. City of Thieves is built on the bedrock of the band's unique ska-core/hip-hop/jungle hybrid but (in keeping with their original ethos of expanding the boundaries of what a punk band can be) adds dubstep, electro, dub and even glam rock to the mix, all the while retaining the snarling live edge honed by recent tours of the UK, Europe and the US with acts such as Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Bad Brains and Big D and the Kid's Table. The first class collaborators involved in the record include production duties by Peter Miles (The King Blues, The Steal), artwork courtesy of Dan Mumford (Gallows, ADTR) and guest appearances from Al Rumjen (King Prawn, Asian Dub Foundation), Robin Leitch (Random Hand), and New York City ska legend King Django (Stubborn All-Stars, Skinnerbox).
In addition to Sonic Boom Six, the band perform acoustic reggae sets as Babyboom; a project that specialises in playing fundraisers, houseparties and holding musical workshops… but won't turn their nose up at busking for a few extra pennies during tours. Laila, Ben and Barney are also members of Suicide Bid, the ongoing dub-punk collective who are beginning work on their third full-length. A continuation of the DIY approach at the heart of band's ethos, SB6 arrange the Ruff and Ready package tour which provides a collective platform for some of the most intensifying underground bands around and toured to resonant success in 2007 and 2008 showcasing such acts as Mouthwash, the King Blues, Chris Murray and more.
"Grand statement time: Sonic Boom Six are, simply, the most exciting live band in the country and will, yup will, own 2009." NME
“Ska-punk isn't dead, it's just got a whole lot better.” KERRANG!
“The fact is that they represent something the Moosik Indusstree has been seeking out for years, a focussed blast of melody with a backbone of unimpeachable integrity, and they're utterly vital..” DROWNEDINSOUND.COM
“The Boom retain their status as one of the most powerful acts on the UK punk scene.” BIG CHEESE
"SB6 own the stage, probably get the best reaction of the entire day and, put simply, could well be the UK's most entertaining live act". PUNKTASTIC.COM
