Another one we couldn’t play in our allotted radio slot on account of a station-imposed watershed, here are Dublin’s V98.
The band’s debut EP Pressgang came out a short while ago and as the name suggests it addresses the socio-political nettle bush that is the work-life balance. “I’ll get a fucking job when I want a fucking job”, goes opening track Conversation Killer as it barks into life. Barks into life and then doesn’t let you go, a little terrier of a track with the leg of your jeans securely in clamped it’s jaws. From a band that previously ran into a fight with the Velcro Corporation (Velcro-98 became V-98 as a result) we expect little less.

Pressgang is out now. Follow @V98band
