Quick-fire questions: TPM

Sharing a bed, delicious curry sauce and who they are listening to at the moment.

Subtle isn’t a word that you would associate with the hilarious antics of Dundalk’s TPM. Unashamedly themselves, they show no fear in their punk-fuelled lyricism and routinely caused riotous responses across a number of festival dates this Summer.

No stranger to the live music circuit they head out on their ‘Heaven is a harp pint’ tour next month. Ahead of the live shows we had a quick chat with the boys.

You are fighting in the octagon, what song do you walk out to?
I Would Drink 500 Pints by Richie Kavanagh.

Whose music are you listening to at the moment?
Post Punk Podge, The Deadlians, Lankum, Hazey, Citrus, Gavin Da Vinci, Junior Brother.

You have your own talk show, who is your first guest?
Leo Varadkar.

You can rock the stage with any act past or present, who are you choosing?
GG Allin.

You are headlining Glastonbury, what are your most outrageous rider requests?
A full size dole office backstage complete with actors that can run us around in circles and make us feel useless before the gig. It would psych us up lovely.

Tell us something that we wouldn’t know about you?
We sleep in the same bed every night and DJ Snakey Bastard sleeps at the foot like a small terrier.

The first album you bought?
Chicken & Beer by Ludacris.

You can choose one artist to head up the government and subsequently save the country, who is it?
Jinx Lennon.

What can’t you live without?
Curry sauce and cute TPM fans.

Where can we catch you during the rest of 2019?
We are playing the Westival Halloween Ball on October 27 then we have our nationwide ‘The Heaven is a Harp Pint Tour‘ in November.
