The long-awaited second solo album from The Undertones guitarist Damian ONeill is an

exquisitely inventive collection of largely instrumental tracks, mixed by veteran producer

Paul Tipler (Stereolab, Placebo, Julian Cope, House Of Love). The title "An Crann" is Irish

for "The Tree", a symbol of growth and inspiration. As Damian himself explains…"If some-

one listened to this record without knowing anything about me, theyd probably never guess

that I started life in a punk band. I unashamedly wanted to present instrumental pieces that

are emotional, evocative and personal and offer to the listener textures and layers of music

that can be melodic, childlike and even melancholic at times. Theres obviously Irish folk

traditional influences as well as French, Japanese, American and British. Im playing virtually

all the instruments myself, with added percussion on a couple of songs. It was recorded

mainly at home over the last couple of years in the loft of our house on a laptop with an array

of instruments such as electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, bass, organ, vibraphone, toy

marimba and glockenspiel, melodica, mouth organ, squeezebox, kalimba, bells and various

percussion and human voices."

Expect to see reviews in the top music blogs and the national UK and Irish monthlies, and

plenty of support from national and regional radio. On top of that, the album release will be

messaged out via social media to many thousands of Undertones and Damian ONeill
