Excitement is building for the upcoming Microdisney shows in the National Concert Hall Dublin June 2nd and the Barbican London on June 9th.  Sean O’Hagan and Cathal Coughlan of the band dropped in to the BBC Radio 6 studio yesterday for an interview with Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie. The million dollar question was posed (will there be more shows?), as to the answer.. well you’ll just have to listen in. Watch Sean and Cathal perform ‘Dolly’ as part of the Barbican sessions here. Following up on his recent audio documentary Paul McDermott has just published an oral history of the band.

Addendum: On May 30th in the days leading up to the momentous reunion in the National Concert Hall Sean and Cathal dropped in to the Newstalk studios to talk to Tom Dunne.

Despite the fact that Newstalk insists on broadcasting in mono (even the online stream is mono for crying out loud) I find myself addicted to the new Tom Dunne show. The ‘Back To Mine’ feature is a particular favourite and has included guests such as Terri Hooley, David Holmes, Ben Watt, Gerry Leonard, Jon Savage, Joan As Policewoman, Willy Vlautin, Tracey Thorn, Nina Persson, Martha Reeves, Patrick McCabe, John Grant, Matthew Sweet, Ray Connolly, Conor O’Brien, Josh Ritter, Thomas Walsh and John Connolly.

Recently Tom spoke to Sean O’Hagan of Microdisney and I enjoyed it so much I had to share. The audio is hosted on the Newstalk site here. Subscribe to the show RSS feed here.
