Widely considered to be one of Ireland's most revered singer/songwriters, Cathal Coughlan is beloved by fans of causticliterate music in the vein of Wilco, Robert Forster and Mark Eitzel. He co-founded 80s/90s groups Microdisney and Fatima Mansions and followed with four acclaimed solo albums. Song Of Co-Aklan is his first new music in 10 years. The record not only has his usual backing musicians, The Necropolitan String Quartet, but also Luke Haines (Auteurs/Black Box Recorder), Sean O'Hagan (Microdisney/High Llamas), Rhodri Marsden (Scritti Politti), Aindrías O Gruama (Fatima Mansions), Cory Gray (The Delines) and Dublin singer-songwriter Eileen Gogan..  Loosely conceptual, and based around the persona of Co-Aklan, the melodic and inventive LP showcases Cathal's signature caustic wit and smoky baritone, which has earned him comparisons to Scott Walker. Enclosed in a stunning sleeve by award-winning Bruce Brand (The Darkness and White Stripes) with an eye-catching portrait by outsider artist Cristabel Christo.
