First new music in 10 years from

Microdisney/Fatima Mansions

founder and singer

Guests include Luke Haines, Sean O' Hagan

and more

Cathal Coughlan is the co-founder and singer of acclaimed 80s/90s pop-rock

groups Microdisney and Fatima Mansions, and widely considered to be one

of Irelands most revered singer/songwriters, beloved by fans of caustic

literate music in the vein of Wilco, Robert Forster and Mark Eitzel. Hes

released four acclaimed solo albums and this will be his first new music in

10 years. Features and reviews are already set for Mojo and The Wire and

expect plentiful support from BBC6 Music.

Enclosed in a stunning sleeve by award-winning Bruce Brand (The Darkness

and White Stripes) with an eye-catching portrait by outsider artist Cristabel

Christo. The new record not only has his usual backing musicians, The

Necropolitan String Quartet, but also Luke Haines (Auteurs/Black Box

Recorder), Sean OHagan (Microdisney/High Llamas), Rhodri Marsden (Scritti

Politti) , Aindrías Ó Gruama (Fatima Mansions), Cory Gray (The Delines) and

Dublin singer-songwriter Eileen Gogan..

Loosely conceptual, and based around the persona of Co-Aklan, the LP is

melodic and inventive. Twelve fabulous new songs showcasing Cathals

signature caustic wit and smoky baritone, which has earned him comparisons

to Scott Walker; three singles taken from the album will have promotional

videos from Marry Waterson and Andy Golding of the Wolfhounds.

"Coughlans intelligence and passion are a rebuke to a vapid music industry,

his chronicles of disaffection and disgust an inspiration."

- David Peschek, The Guardian
