about

Best known as the ringleader of Irish indie-pop circus No Monster Club (as well as stints with Ginnels, Paddy Hanna and Grand Pocket Orchestra), Already Dead Records is delighted to announce the release of the debut LP from Sir Bobby Jukebox - a guy that's been called “the mad scientist of indie-pop” (The Last Mixed Tape), “purely wonderful” (Everett True) and “completely genius” (Bitter Sweet Symphonies).

His previous incarnations saw him touring basements and dive bars across the world, making a range of U.S. media appearances ('Chic-a-Go-Go', 'The BJ Rubin Show', WFMU) and sharing a stage with the likes of Wavves, Ariel Pink and The Polyphonic Spree. With 'Friendship Gift', the prolific songwriter is starting anew after an unusually long hiatus, during which he turned his attentions to a best-selling history book ('D'You Remember Yer Man?') and a surreal stage musical ('Trial of the Centurys').

This period also saw him uprooted from his temperate European homeland to subtropical Queensland, due to some ludicrous red tape bureaucracy - a topic touched upon in the globalist singalongs 'You Are Here' and 'Scouts Anthem'. Mixed by Fiachra McCarthy (Squarehead, So Cow) and mastered by Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Terry), the resultant hour of psychedelic bubblegum is a summertime classic that buoys from pristine pop singles like 'Factor 50' and Eurovision reject 'World Peace' to sun-drenched, in-no-hurry jams like 'You Only Dance' and the ten minute long existential crisis soundscape that is 'A Long Day at the Seaside'.
