Fred’s Eleven

I chose this title coz it sounds like “Legs Eleven”. Although the Fred EP was released in 2000, so that would make Fred eleven, too. THAT’S SO CLEVER!

So yeah, from latest album Leaving My Empire, this is Eleven, the new single by Cork legends and all-round funky divils Fred.

Check out that approaching-epic refrain! Both song and video are rather fantastic, and that this is Irish should reassure you that there are tight, alternative offerings out there in the great green yonder and put you in a deadly mood indeed. Eleven puts me in mind of Foals’ “Blue Blood”, both in vibe and video concept, except the kids in this one get a standing ovation and aren’t creepy little asshats wearing shirts too big for them.

Youse can catch Fred this summer (and I recommend that you do) as follows:

Fri 20th May Waterford – Forum Theatre

About the Author

That cranky young wan from award-winning blog, Arse End Of Ireland, Lisa’s also noted for her dedication to cobbling together unrelated imprecations to make new and bemusing insults, mostly because she’s not eloquent enough to otherwise explain her deep-seated terror of genre fiction and Fianna Fail. In 2006, The Irish Times called her “… the most talented writer at work in Ireland today”, and her mam still can’t understand why this is better than being the new Marian Keyes. Which it totally is.

    The first dance sequence is totally robbed from Donnie Darko, no?
