The Pale - Crane Lane

Rescheduled following the BIG SNOW of March 2018.

Second time lucky! The Pale to Cork to revisit classic songs as well as showcasing brand new material and choice cuts from their dozen independently released albums.

Released in 1992 on A&M Records, the band's debut album 'Here's One We Made Earlier'

marked the emergence of one of the Irish indie scene's most innovative and creative acts. Journalists and A&R executives struggled with descriptions and superlatives, wrapping their tongues around comparisons to Tom Waits, Les Voix Bulgares, Primus, Brecht, Madness, Europop, Jacque Brel, Talking Heads and the even the Sex Pistols. The album mixed a range of influences from classic Indie, Eastern European folk, Ska and classic torch songs, while at the same time sounding utterly unique. At the heart of the group lay the vocal acrobatics of Matthew Devereux, coupled with the ethno-punk stunt-mandolin of Shane Wearen.

Parting ways with A&M records in the mid 1990s, the band began a journey that would take them well off the beaten track. Briefly changing their name to Produkt, becoming the house-band for an alternative circus and gigging in then uncharted territories of Eastern Europe and Russia. Over two decades they released 10 albums independently, including an impressive four album run on the respected 1969 Records. The evolution of The Pale has seen the group swell to a five piece, with David O'Shea on guitar and keyboards, Gavin O'Brien on Bass and Aidan O'Grady on Drums.

The band's live reputation is hard earned, with sets taking in dozens of songs across a myriad of genres - all delivered with lyrical prowess and a musical dexterity. Anyone who witnessed the blistering set at last year's Electric Picnic, which attracted one of the biggest crowds the Salty Dog stage has ever seen, will have an idea what to expect: Expertly crafted songs delivered with an energy and musical accomplishment that is second to none.
