The Skinny: Citing influences the likes of The Smiths, Thin Lizzy and NYC punk rock, this Dublin, Ireland trio came together in the mid-nineties to form their own unique blend of rock, garage and blues. With dirty, classic amplification and a well-established name via gigging in Dublin’s seedy underground of sweat and booze-soaked pubs, The Minutes have honed their show and sound on small stages in front of truly intimate and interactive hometown crowds.
During this time the band was able to get supporting roles for more prominent acts such as Supergrass, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Von Bondies, which in turn only broadened their fanbase and pushed them further down the path to success. With all of this positive momentum, the lads are now set to release their debut self-titled EP unto the US. Slated for a Valentine’s day (February 14th) premiere and an ensuing showcase at SXSW, the band is surely counting the minutes until they play next! Enjoy this free download today!
