Lir Free To Make Music Again


Noel McGuinness talks to RO BYRNE, lead guitarist with Lir, the band which is only now celebrating release from an onerous contract obligation that has dragged on for years.

Ro says it is hard for young bands who only think about rock and roll to keep an eye on the business end of things. However, we can find out here what’s been going on and hear about the forthcoming release of a film (‘Good Cake Bad Cake’ being released to wide critical and public acclaim) about the band’s tribulations.

There are two tracks from Lir included in the interview. These run from 00.21 to 02.40 and a second from 12.29 to 14.33.
