Watch­ing mu­sic on the gog­gle box

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music News - lmur­phy@irish­times.com

Ir­ish mu­sic fans have plenty of tele­vi­sual treats to look for­ward to in the com­ing months. Last week, RTÉ an­nounced their au­tumn sched­ule, and along with it, the news that mu­sic-based mag­a­zine show When Un­der Ether (now known as Un­der Ether) will re­turn for a sec­ond se­ries on RTÉ 2. Some of the artists ex­pected to per­form ses­sions in­clude Vil­lagers, Adrian Crow­ley, Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum and Re­pub­lic of Loose.

“Hon­estly, I can’t say I was fully ex­pect­ing the show to be re­newed – hoped like hell of course, but ex­pected noth­ing,” pro­ducer El­ton Mul­lally told The Ticket. “Ev­ery­one knows that the Ir­ish mu­sic in­dus­try and Ir­ish mu­sic fans have been cry­ing out for a show like this since the days of No Disco, and we are thrilled to get the gig.” In­ter­ested acts should e-mail el­ton@tuskpro­duc­tions.ie

Also re­newed for a sec­ond se­ries is TG4’s Ceol ar an Imeall, hosted by jour­nal­ist Una Mul­lally. Fight Like Apes and The Cast of Cheers are among the live per­form­ers, while there will also be in­ter­views with in­ter­na­tional acts such as Vam­pire Week­end and show­cases of work by 10 Ir­ish mu­sic video di­rec­tors.

The renowned Other Voices is also ex­pected to re­turn for its ninth sea­son. It will be recorded in Dingle, Co Kerry this De­cem­ber.
