This single is the first new music from the legendary Cathal Coughlan in over 10 years and is also the title track for his forthcoming new album that's out on March 5th on Dimple Discs.
Cathal is best known for his time in Fatima Mansions and Microdisney as well as being one of John Peels favourite singers/songwriters. I was sent this single to review by two separate PR companies which means I have read both press releases and know how much this needs to be heard and the video directed by George Seminara is a must see for anyone who is missing watching live bands through the phone screens of the person standing in front of them.
Song Of Co-Aklan is a fast paced song about the state of the world we are in and how we are all suffering for the plans and actions of one mad man or another and how being locked down has affected us all, Luke Haines and James Woodrow's guitarwork is often brilliant and the keyboards and synths played by Cathal add loads of interesting textural elements to add to the sense of disembodied despair many of us feel while updating our profiles and looking for a place of safety.
