This is relevant in one of those fun, roundabout ways.

My boyfriend and two friends doing a cover of Volcano, because I love Damien Rice and made him learn this for me. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it, too.

Flying Solo - article from The Irish Times about Lisa [31 Aug 2008|03:48am]

Lisa Hannigan had gotten comfortable touring and recording with Damien Rice.  But a nudge out of the nest gave her the impetus she needed to record her own debut album.  She talks thrills and trepidation with Jim Carroll on the eve of her appearance at this weekend's Electric Picnic.

IT'S A sticky night in Dundalk. Real monsoon weather. All the windows in the Spirit Store are open in an attempt to get some air circulating, but the only thing going round the packed tiny room and down the stairs to the front bar is a buzz of expectation. People are curious about the singer, the one who has yet to release a note of music and who hasn't yet even played two dozen shows under her own name.

Tonight, Lisa Hannigan is selling her wares. She's been doing this all summer long, taking a bunch of freshly baked songs and a band of sharply suited players around the country to small, squishy rooms like this. She has dealt with wardrobe malfunctions in Tullamore and banjos going on fire in Headford. People have paid good money to see her, and she has sent them home smiling. And sweating, but that's the Irish summer for you.

rest of the article, where she talks about her experience with Damien Rice, the end of their relationship and her solo careerCollapse )

Also, the EskimoFriends board says, "Lisa will be appearing on the Tony Fenton Show on Irish radio station Today FM next Wednesday (September 3rd). You can listen in live between 14.30 and 16.30 (Irish time) from here."

10 Days to Barcelona! [09 Jun 2008|11:18pm]

I'm never really sure whether to crosspost things here, but over on eskimo_friends, I've been putting up Damien's myspace entries as he tries to drive from Ireland to Barcelona in 10 days, writing 10 songs along the way for his next album!  They're a week into the trip now:

song 7 half written

Day 1 and 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 5 & 6

Also, Lisa's started her first solo tour already, and what with her debut solo album coming out soon (hopefully!  they've finished recording it at least), I think it's time she had a place of her own on LJ.  She's deserved her own community for a while, but now that she's officially gone solo... it's definitely the right time to start one up.  So, I've created my_pirate_disco for all the latest Lisa Hannigan news. 

Please join, post, discuss and spread the word!!

[ mood | hungry ]

Does anyone have the recording of Damien singing "Hallelujah" for Leonard Cohen's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction a couple of weeks ago? I just got the email about it, and I'd love to hear him singing that song.

Leonard Cohen tribute [10 Mar 2008|10:05pm]

Damien just performed a tribute to Leonard Cohen at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony (Cohen's being inducted this year).  I couldn't catch video of it but it's now on youtube!  I did manage to grab the audio from the live stream though.

Hallelujah is a hard song to pull off, but he was pretty flawless!  (he looked adorable as well)

I heard there was a secret chord that David played and it pleased the Lord...

Feel free to spread the link around, I don't mind so long as everyone gets a chance to hear him!

ETA a quote from backstage (from Billboard.com):

Damien Rice, who performed Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" just after Cohen's induction, talked to Billboard backstage about what makes the song so special for him. "There's an amazing connection between sex and spirituality, and it's something Leonard Cohen hints at in that song," he said. "It's almost like a Buddhist master giving you a hint, but not the whole story. You have to take that hint and go sit with it."

Rice added that he's presently in the studio in Los Angeles, but has no timetable to release his next album. "I'm just floating, seeing where the wind takes me," he said.

long-shot [07 Feb 2008|10:00am]

Does anyone have a clean, radio edit of Damien Rice's "Rootless Tree"? Like the one found on this album, that you could upload to sendspace or something for me? Or direct me somewhere that I can buy the single track from in mp3 form?
I desperately want to perform a dance to it, but I can't with "fuck you" in the chorus. I don't want to buy the single from amazon either without hearing the edited version first.
Also, I don't think I want to use the piano version. Not enough power :)
