With the baggy indie swagger of The Stone Roses and Primal Scream, you might be forgiven for thinking it was still 1989 on first listening to Belfast five-piece Cashier No.9 – if the breezy swagger wasn’t teamed with the more subtle influences of Captain Beefheart, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Echo and The Bunnymen, The Flaming Lips and Teenage Fanclub and a good chance of being considered a genuine alternative in the face of so many sound-a-like indie wannabes.

Newly signed to Bella Union (current home of Fleet Foxes, Midlake and Explosions In The Sky), their David Holmes-produced EP Goldstar was released in March after debut single 42 West Avenue succeeded in getting a diverse section of some of the UK’s key tastemakers talking, including Steve Lamacq, Janice Long, David Holmes, John Kennedy, Rob Da Bank, and Jon Hillcock.

Debut album To The Death Of Fun was released this summer to shining reviews from The Scotsman and BBC Music as well as a host of others.

Support comes from Dave Fraser and indie-electro act Kowalski, whose live shows and upbeat, shimmering indie pop has seen them heralded as one of the most exciting bands to come out of Northern Ireland in recent years. Their self-produced, self-recorded debut EP Take Care, Take Flight was released earlier this year.


“a nugget of lusciousness in these austere musical times, the irresistible sound of a musical plan coming together” **** The Scotsman
