Harry Hoban and the Brothers Kane
Somewhere along the line Irvine Welsh , Morrissey
and Buddy Holly had a spiritual fist fight and Harry Hoban
and the Brothers Kane crawled out from beneath the melee
They are a 3 piece band consisting of Harry Hoban ,
Gar Kane and Gerry Kane all hailing from Dublin.
Their music is an eclectic mix of everything from acoustic
folk , storytelling ballads with a punk edge to 'in
your face' honest rock .
Harry and Gar first met in the Ballyfermot Rock School
in 2001 and immediately clicked musically. They had
found that they were
under the spell of similar influences such as The Who
, Bob Dylan , The Band and of course The Beatles.
During their time there they experienced playing to
packed out houses such as Vicar Street and Whelan's.
Whilst in Ballyfermot they studied all aspects of musical
culture , writing and performance under the tutelage
of Pete Holidai
( Radiators From Space ) , Matt Kelleghan ( Moving Hearts
) and Hugh Buckley ( of his own fame ).
They went their separate ways only to reform in 2013
, this time recruiting the services of Gar's multi-instrumentalist
who also acts as a producer . Since then they have written
and recorded multiple tracks with the view to releasing
in bulk and in quick succession .
The first release is a double A-side due out in August
2016 which was recorded and nurtured by the ubiquitous
Mike O'Dowd (Dave Couse, Edwyn
Collins, Alphastates) in his glorious Lakelands Studios
The next step in the bands' movements is to capitalise
on the releases and gig the life out of them around
the country and to gain some memorable
experiences along the journey.
