The Irish Times byline sums it up perfectly: “Cult new wave national treasures The Atrix return with a gig, a CD and new material”. Dan Hegarty interviewed Hugh Friel (drums) and Dick Conroy (bass) on his show last Sunday and the two will appear on the Tom Dunne show tonight at 10pm. The remastered compilation album ‘Dublin 1979-1981’ will be launched on CD and vinyl this Thursday September 19th in the Sugar Club with special guests Kevin McAleer and Paula Meehan.

John Borrowman – Stoned Circle

Posted in Music with tags , on March 12, 2013 by Fanning Sessions

John Borrowman came up recently when we posted an RTE1 Sunday Miscellany profile on The Atrix. That prompted a reader to contact us about John’s solo album ‘Stoned Circle’ which seems to have gone unnoticed. John moved to Copenhagen in the late 80s and it was here and in Dublin’s Sonic Studios that he assembled a cast of friends and musicians to record what was to become his final album.
