The Sinn Fein representative stated that thousands of workers are caught in a trap, exploited and tethered to contracts which only provide minimal hours and uncertain pay from week to week. “The Government’s Low Pay Commission is ineffective, and the proposed collective bargaining legislation is way off the mark in terms of what is urgently needed to address this problem. This is unacceptable, especially on the part of the Labour Party,” said Cllr McCreesh, speaking in support of workers at Dunnes Stores.

The Webb Brothers: Webb Brothers

first_imgThe Webb Brothers: Webb Brothers Out now The third album from the Chicago born Webb Brothers, sons of the famous 60s singer/songwriter, brings together all the threads of musical originality exhibited in their first two albums. Self-produced by the three siblings Justin, Christiaan and James under 679 Recordings, home of The Streets and discoverers of the Polyphonic Spree, the eponymously titled new album is unashamedly home-grown. Songs like ‘A Funny Ol’Kind of Music’ and ‘Heaven Never Letting Me In’ show off the band’s own brand of wit and jollity. The melodies, beats and generally noviced tone of the album are typical of the likes of The Strokes, The Doves and perhaps even creeps towards the sound of The Thrills. Even the sickeningly named ‘Who Wants To Get High’ survives its unfortunate moniker thanks to its confidence and freshness. The current single, ‘Ms Moriaty’, also impresses, exemplifying the ease with which the Webb Brothers make near perfect pop music. Definitely a vast improvement on their amateurish last album, Maroon.ARCHIVE: 0th Week MT2003last_img read more
