The Rattling Kind consists of four members:
Eddie Sherlock – Vocals
Ben Mc Ginn – Guitars
Thomas Forde – Bass
John Mulrooney – Drums
With a love for Irish artists such as The Dubliners, Damien Dempsey, Declan Sinnott, The Frames and Villagers, as well as international artists like Paulo Nutini, Newton Faulkner, Arcade Fire, Kasabian, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and Frank Zappa, this Dublin based quartet hope to pool their musical influences together and aim to produce “The Rattling Kind” of music people want to hear.
Having worked the Dublin pub scene for over a year, lead singer Eddie Sherlock gained quite the following for his rousing renditions of the many classic Irish ballad songs. But he wanted more…
Thomas, a keen songwriter, began meeting up with Eddie in their spare time and it was at this juncture that the decision was taken to join forces and write their own songs and play their own music. They would form a band.
Next to join was Ben, taking on the role of lead guitarist. But Ben would swap from one musical instrument to the next; he has even been known to play wine glasses at house parties. But the whole sound really came together when John arrived on drums. The transition was seamless. A former member of “The Artane Boy’s Band” and a childhood friend of Thomas, John settled in quickly and after a mere three rehearsals was already gigging with the band.
Things will move very quickly for these four lads from Dublin – so catch them within the intimate surroundings of The Academy 2 before they take off.
