Forming in 1992 John ‘Haggis’ Hegarty (vocals), Graham Finn (guitar), Edward Butt (bass), Colum Young (drums) quickly rose to fame abandoning their beloved Cork for the music hub that was 90s London. Touring regularly with welsh band The Manic Street Preachers as well as releasing a string of successful E. P’s, including Overflow, William and Know Me the band eventually parted ways with Sony Records becoming woven into the rich tapestry of Irish Rock history.
After a 25-year hiatus, Emperor Of Ice-cream reunited in 2020, for the release of their debut album No Sound Ever Dies. Since then the legendary Cork band has not only taken the indie charts by storm (going straight to number one) but have created a demand for their indie-rock discography.
With their current album, the band has collaged together, a collection of E.P’s from 93 to 94 that is loaded with some of their brightest indie-rock gems including Over Flow, Skinning It Up and Puerile.
This is an impressive collection, that overflows with that shambolic 90s sound of fuzzy guitars and raw anthemic indie melodies. Definitely one for the collection!
The EP collection 93-94 can be purchased now via Bandcamp and is available as a digital download and a limited-edition cd.
