Dave Lordan writes:
Five teenagers gather at a party in a bedsit in Dunmanway, West Cork during mushroom season in 1993 – a Curehead, a couple of ravers, a punk and a mod. Only the Curehead – me, Dave Lordan – is left on this Earth in 2018.
In this six-episode podcast memoir, I will delve into each of the four dead friends’ lives, and each of their deaths, in turn – before ending with a demon-haunted climax in Gatsby’s “niteclub”.
New episodes of The Dead Friends will be released each Wednesday from 26 September to 31 October. You can get them here on the Dublin Inquirer website, or via the Dublin Inquirer Podcast on iTunes or Stitcher, or on Libsyn.
The Dead Friends, Episode 1 (Dave Lordan, Dublin Inquirer)
In case you missed it.
Ireland’s poet anti-laureate Dave Lordan (he of aggro-lit bedrock The Bogman’s Cannon) has a new radio show, with newly-active online station Dublin Digital Radio, simply monikered The Pirate Show.
An Alt.lit show with emphasis on the singing poet tradition then & now, live lit, performance, & spoken word/music crossovers in all their forms. For the first show I will be briefly interviewing Ewan McColl’s proud ghost, & talking in more detail to rebel writer Sorcha Fox.
Also featuring Conchúr Ó Ceallaigh, Olive Groove, Jinx Lennon, Sisterix, The Sons of Slum, Katie Freeney, The King Blues, The Dubtones, Kate Tempest, Rafeef Ziadah, Adrian Mitchell, Natasha Helen Crudden, Daniel Wade, Captain Moonlight, Jinx Lennon & Paula Flynn.
Tune in – great craic & inspiration guaranteed.
