Scary Eire - The Scary Era LP Promo

In case you were asleep through last summers miserable weather, you may not know that Irelands premier hip hop outfit, ScaryÉire, finally released their long awaited debut album, 'The Scary Era'.

Formed in 1991 by the four members, DJ Mek, Dada Sloosh, Mr.Browne and RíRá, ScaryÉire were the first irish hip hop act to sign to a major label. Their live performances included support slots with bands such as, 'House of Pain', 'The Beastie Boys', 'Madness' and 'U2', along with their own, now legendary, 'Barnstormers' sessions.

ScaryÉire's punk-like attitude, raw sound, topped with a vivid sense of humor, made them unique and comparable to no other band of any genre. Often praised by the greats, (like the late Joe Strummer of 'The Clash' and 'The Pogues' frontman Shane MacGowan), their music is a hard hitting truth and a voice of social misfits, sometimes political, always original.

'The Scary Era' album has been 16 staggering years in the waiting, and is a collection of songs from the pre-westlife, pre-Pat Kenny, pre-celtic tiger Ireland. It stampede's from the start with rattling rhythms and thunderous rhymes.

'The Scary Era' sounds as relevant today as ever.

'The Scary Era' album is available in most decent record stores and also through the internet.

Bag it
