Crete Boom - A concrete ship making the Great Voyage

Published on February 26 2009

Crete Boom named themselves after a concrete ship that sunk on a sandbank near their hometown. They however don't plan to share its fate - that is to say never to get out of the small western Ireland town. As soon as possible, they want to go on tour again, to inspire not only the Irish with their music that cannot be pigeonholed.

The band exists since 2005 and has played many gigs, mainly in Ireland, and recorded about 30 tracks. "Sadly I ran out of money after the mixes for the first six tracks that appeared on jamendo. I mixed 'Navy and Grey' in my attic and I intend to mix and release the rest of the songs on jamendo as soon as I get the time and money to do it..." says Seosamh, the guitar player, composer, writer, sound engineer, producer, manager and last but not least driver of the band's van.

Crete Boom have already taken their crazy mix of pop, rock and more to Germany and would love to play to more crowds of Europeans and Americans if they had a larger budget and were able to coordinate the schedules of their members. Till then you'll have to satisfy yourself with the two excellent albums available on jamendo. They are definitely worth a listen.
