Channeling the primal surge of rampant garage rock 'n' roll with elements of the blues and gospel; The Minutes have honed their craft on the Irish, UK and European gig and festival circuit over the last couple of years. Their debut album – 'Marcata' – has been universally hailed in the Irish media as one of the best of last year. Band members Mark Austin (guitar / vocals), Shane Kinsella (drums) and Tom Cosgrave (bass) played their biggest show to date at Dublins Academy in June followed by a further tour of Europe. Relentless touring and a force to be reckoned with live- this is blood , sweat and tears.The Minutes are the real deal and one of the hottest new rock bands around.
