Fans flock to catch Peakin Trip­pers live show

Bray People - - Fundraiser In Aid Of Lesotho Project -

FOR THE first time since the mid-90s, when a mem­ber of Ther­apy per­formed in the Har­bour Bar, there were queues of peo­ple wait­ing out­side the lo­cal pub to see Peakin’ Trip­pers per­form af­ter their de­but sin­gle Tin Tin hit the Ir­ish charts the pre­vi­ous week.

Fans waited pa­tiently out­side for up to one hour as staff were forced to stop let­ting peo­ple in due to safety con­cerns. Good­na­tured pun­ters also queued up in­side to get to the bar as un­der pres­sure staff did their best to fa­cil­i­tate the huge num­bers of peo- ple. When lead singer Scott O’Neill in­tro­duced Tin Tin to rap­tur­ous ap­plause, he re­minded the au­di­ence that the song, in at num­ber 45 and was only on sale in two record shops, had beaten Me­tal­lica and Nick­le­back, both of whom had re­leased sin­gles the same week. Peakin’ Trip­pers were the only un­signed act to have made that week’s chart.

Tin Tin is avail­able in mu­sic­mail.ie on the Main Street (for­merly Golden Discs) and in Tower Records on Wick­low Street. Al­ter­na­tively text 1392 to 57501 to down­load the song.

The Peakin Trip­pers, who played The Koo last week, are cel­e­brat­ing their re­cent chart suc­cess.
