Earthlings (unreleased track) by Bead

Completely forgot I had written, recorded and made a video for this song 4 years ago. Mental what you find on computers when you tidy them up.

Earthlings is a song I wrote in December 2008 and originally recorded at home in Swords, Co. Dublin and later adding instruments in Bray in 2016.

It was a long time ambition to write a song about why I refuse to eat animals. My friends must think I am nuts but I will never understand why the majority of the population think it is acceptable to take a life for food. It is completely unnecessary in a modern world. Personally, I love animals not just pets. I get that not everyone does. I am vegetarian 35 years now and I feel fantastic.

Named after the award winning Shaun Monson Documentary Film starring Joaquin Phoenix. MAKE THE CONNECTION

Climbing Up The Walls

We are all climbing up the walls at this stage. Who can blame this little fella for wanting to make a break for it.

Common Frog (Rana temporaria)

Beirut The Riptide

Discovered The Riptide by Beirut back in 2011, heard it in a veggie restaurant in Galway when I stopped in for dinner. I never heard anything like it and asked the waitress who it was. A very special band. One of those albums that needs to be listened to in its entirety I think. I picked this vinyl version up last October in Kilkenny rollercoaster records and I’m only getting around to listening to it today. If you like brass, check it out. Happy Friday people. Stay safe. 🎧

How many songs are about Jesus?

Thanks Be To Jesus (a Spotify Playlist)

The first thought I had when I woke up at 5:30 last Sunday, so I decided to start a new Spotify Playlist, as you do. I did a quick post on Instagram last Sunday but now it’s time to get serious.

Off the top of my head… I thought Wilco, Morrissey, Depeche Mode, Nirvana.. then Spotify started adding shit to the playlist, bad Spotify, how very dare you. This needed swift and immediate action!
