“With a sheer onslaught of funk, the band slapped, plucked, and strummed their way into technicolour ridiculousness. Adopting the name Earthship presumably because of the interplanetary undertones that are evident throughout the gig. Almost all their songs feature a solo from each member. As they bound from solo to solo it’s almost too much at times. It’s like being attacked from all sides by relentless bouts of funk, you feel disorientated, like you’ve received a savage beating from the jazz police. There’s unbelievable performances from both bassist Karl Clews and guitarist Eoghan Judge (“the best guitarist in Ennis!”) but overshadowing everyone is the ghoulish David Bowie Willem Dafoe love-child of a keyboardist Mark Farrelly. He’s so incredibly adroit that at times it seems like his fingers are possessed by some kind of funky sorcery. Add that to some gratuitous 360 twirls and you’ve got yourself a gig of epic entertainment.”
