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.

We are all climbing up the walls at this stage. Who can blame this little fella for wanting to make a break for it.
Don’t be a frog, be a good human. Stay home, be safe.

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. 🎧
