Joe Whitney was recommended to us Mick Harrison of Prolapse aka Ears go fff... He was the very distinctive drummer for The Flaming Stars, and his two solo tracks follow the dark 60's garage sounds.
Believing (foolishly) that artists are the best at promoting themselves we used to ask for assistance in PR. Joe dictated the strangest press release to us about denouncing the catholic faith at an early age.
The split single launch with Plaza was arranged at the Hope and Anchor. Joe called in favours, including another drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig (My Bloody Valentine) to perform to the "crowd" of forty or so.
