The Alternative Sunday Social Club Presents in The Wild Duck on Sunday, October 8th at 4.00pm Slumberjet with Support from Ger Eaton
Slumberjet are a Dublin based Power Pop band led by vocalist and primary songwriter Barry O’Brien whose influences include The Beatles / Elvis Costello / The Police / Nirvana / XTC. Barry’s deep love for music is displayed in his craft and search for a perfect pop song in the classic sense.
Slumberjet have released two albums to date, 2010’s self-titled LP which produced the single ‘The Strangest Game’ and 2019’s ‘World of Sound’ produced by ex-Picture House / Pugwash member and solo artist, Duncan Maitland.
Both albums have received rave reviews including album of the year for ‘World of Sound’ by Aaron Kupferberg’s Powerpopaholic blog and his book, ‘Songs in my Head’, considered by many to be The modern guide to power pop music.
With one time member Eustace Merriman back in the fold on drums, along with Ben Merriman on bass, Slumberjet are once again a power pop trio back on the live scene. Playing favourites from the first album and airing songs from ‘World of Sound’ for the first time with a live band this is a new chapter for Slumberjet.
