The Sewing Room – Forewarned

Continuing our series of underrated Irish music since 1960 (unearthed during a recent Golden Discs music competition), I chose 1990s Dublin indie troupe The Sewing Room who were once memorably described by Hot Press journalist Niall Crumlish as sounding “like death cooled down”. In a good way!

Singer/guitarist Eamonn Davis had previously been in Hey Paulette and was most recently seen playing bass in Eileen Gogan’s band The Instructions.

Lead guitarist Stan Erraught had shone in The Stars Of Heaven and drummer Dez Foley went on to join Crumb, The Drays and Acton Bell.

They released two critically acclaimed albums And Nico (top) and Sympathy For The Dishevelled and the Drug Free EP.

For an all too brief time, The Sewing Room had us in stitches.

Nick says: Knitrock.
