Let’s David O’Doherty – his new CD recorded live at Whelan’s is out now.
A couple of us went – supporting live comedy, don’t ya know – and it was indeed, what it promised to be – a funny, fast and frenetic couple of hours in the company of DOD, his keyboards, his many batteries and his rambling, manic, sometimes dangerous mind.
The place was, as you’d expect for a gig for €5, jammers with fans and supporters (hence the dodgy photo angles), and he gave us a great – pre Edinburgh – show.
Anyhow, the new CD – Let’s David O’ Doherty – is out now – online here and presumably the shops from tomorrow – with 16 tracks in total. Mixed in with ones I’d heard before “(Sent a text (to the person the text was about)”, “Very mild superpowers” and “The inventions that I like“) are imaginatively entitled tracks like “Unnecessarily long offstage intro”, “You better not have illegally downloaded this album”, “You are not the dream audience”; “Your new girlfriend is an arsehole”; “Death by boardgames” and the very hilarious “My beefs 2009”.
Tis only a tenner – and autographed – so, bargain! I was going to write “If it’s anything like the 100 facts about Pandas book, I’d imagine it will be a good gig to listen to“, but eh, I was there so I know it was…
