‘Here’s One We Made Earlier’ 25th Birthday Party

A celebration of over 25 years at the vanguard of the Irish Indie scene! The Pale are about to revisit their classic album ‘Here’s One We Made Earlier’ for a very special one-off show in Whelans on Saturday Feb 3rd 2018.

Released on A&M Records, the band’s debut marked the emergence of one of the Irish indie scene’s most innovative and creative acts. Journalists and A&R executives struggled with descriptions and superlatives, wrapping their tongues around comparisons to Tom Waits, Les Voix Bulgares, Primus, Brecht, Madness, Europop, Jacque Brel, Talking Heads and even the Sex Pistols. The album mixed a range of influences from classic Indie, Eastern European folk, Ska and classic torch songs, while at the same time sounding utterly unique. At the heart of the group is the vocal acrobatics of Matthew Devereux, coupled with the ethno-punk stuntmandolin of Shane Wearen.

Ireland then was very different to that of today. The Pale represented a new found Irish confidence, a country emerging from the bleakness of the 1980s to a new optimism that brought us Jackie’s army, Zoo TV, The Commitments and a homegrown music scene that had major label sharks swimming in a feeding frenzy snapping up bands. The singles ‘Dogs With No Tails’, ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Shut Up Venus’ catapulted the band onto the world stage, charting across Europe, Israel, and Turkey.

Parting ways with A&M records in the mid 1990s, the band began a journey that would take them well off the beaten track. Briefly changing their name to Produkt, becoming the house-band for an alternative circus and gigging in then uncharted territories of Eastern Europe and Russia. Over two decades they released 10 albums independently, including an impressive four album run on the respected 1969 Records. The evolution of The Pale has seen the group swell to a five piece, with David O’Shea on guitar and keyboards, Gavin O’Brien on Bass and Aidan O’Grady on Drums.

The band’s live reputation is hard earned, with sets taking in dozens of songs across a myriad of genres – all delivered with lyrical prowess and a musical dexterity. Anyone who witnessed the blistering set at last year’s Electric Picnic, which attracted one of the biggest crowds the Salty Dog stage has ever seen, will have an idea what to expect: Expertly crafted songs delivered with an energy and musical accomplishment that is second to none.
