Autonomous i Attack The Mattress

Supported on the night by Adela and the Meanits, together with local band Seskin Lane, the launch on Friday last of Autonomous i’s debut album “Attack the Mattress,” from the offset had all the hallmarks of a gig where seating space would be at a premium.

True to expectations, it was standing room only at The Source Theatre Thurles, when Autonomous i came onstage, thus contradicting the adage that “A prophet is not acceptable in his own country.” This five man outfit, consisting of Frah Butler (Guitar and Vocals), Daragh Kennedy (Guitar and Vocals), Jamie Kelly (Bass and Vocals), Eddie Dwan (Violin, Synth), and Adrian Creany (Drums) are Thurles born & reared and as Eddie Dwan stated to me before the gig, whatever we get up too, our local support base will be the first to be informed.

Described as ‘funk inspired indie rock,’ ‘quirky social commentary set to music‘ and ‘a break from the downbeat,’ “Attack The Mattress,” is a cracking great fresh debut album, and is now available from Heartbeat City Thurles and iTunes.

Expect to hear a lot more about this band, in the not too distant future.
