The Atrix – Teasure On The Wasteland
Like a phoenix from the embers of Dublin’s fabled post-punk new wave scene, The Atrix have risen.
Tonight a reconfigured line-up featuring two members of the original band (Hugh Friel now sings in place of the late John Borrowman) as well as Horslips‘ Jim Lockhart on keyboards plays The Sugar Club, Dublin 2, where they will launch a new retrospective album of their finest songs.
It’s a visually stunning piece of work that does justice to the pioneering spirit of the group when they were in their pomp.
