The Minutes

The Minutes have announced the release of their new album 'Marcata' on Model Citizen Records 30th January 2012.

The band will play a show at The Lexington in London on Tuesday 20th December.

Hands up, who likes rock and roll? And by rock and roll we mean proper rock and roll, born in the 50's, dragged kicking and screaming through the past fifty years or so, passed from generation to generation under the stewardship of true believers.

This is not rock and roll off the conveyor belt. This is visceral, bloody and urgent. Music imbued with a defiant, exuberant energy that has never died. Welcome to the world of The Minutes!

The Minutes - "Black Keys" video:

Dublin cousins Mark Austin (guitar / vocals) and Shane Kinsella (drums) have been playing together since they were nippers - all Fisher Price guitars and Chad Valley backlines. Years later having recruited fellow Dubliner Tom Cosgrave on bass the band invested in some serious vintage amplification, the trio got serious and so heralded the The Minutes for real.

With a background steeped in a diverse array of musical loves and inspirations - be it Johnny Marr, local heroes Thin Lizzy or Lenny Kaye's 'Nuggets' boxset, The Minutes channel their own primal surge of rock 'n' roll and entertain in their own way!

Having honed their craft on home territory over the past couple of years, the band have recently spread their collective wings and have cemented a reputation that precedes them - as a gig thirsty trio who have as good a time as the fans who come to seem them with tunes to more than match the swagger!

The band's debut album 'Marcata' takes its name from the upstate New York recording studio where the band nailed the whole album in a five day blowout under the watchful eyes of Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus) and working old school direct to magnetic tape, eschewing the Pro-Tools digital set up favoured by so many these days.

With a debut single "Black Keys" making all the right noises, picking up plaudits - both on air, in print and online, The Minutes set their sights on 2012.

'Marcata' (MODCIT17CD) is released on January 30th 2012 through Dublin's Model Citizen Records and will be available through all usual outlets, both on CD and digitally.
