With a name like Róisín and The Beards, one automatically hopes that The lady in question has a couple of blokes in her band and doesn’t suffer from some other terrible affliction. On seeing photographs of the band, its safe to say its the former!
‘Meet me at the Central Bank’, the last line of many a conversation in Ireland’s capital, ten minutes before it actually happens.
‘I’ll be the one without the skateboard’ sings Róisín, ‘Come on let’s take a ramble’ which is what seems to happen in this tune. A series of refrains, all chorus like seem to make up this song apart from one slight breakdown. It needs a little more direction I’m afraid.
A nice ditty, probably a good live song but not blowing me away.
