John Francis Flynn


Human experience burns ferociously on this extraordinary debut from the uncompromising Irish artist John Francis Flynn, stalwart of Dublin traditional group Skipper’s Alley. He has a voice like old leather, blunt yet sincere, holding his notes like bagpipe drones, resisting all weathers. Around it whirl traditional instruments and Tascam four-track cassette-tape loops, masterminded by composer Ross Chaney, giving the album an unearthly intensity.
