Band Name Origins:

  • "My parents got married in '72, I thought that was important. If they hadn't, the band wouldn't exist full stop. The 72 number crept up a lot when myself and Fergal formed the group, a few exams that were cheated in. As for the JJs, reading James Joyce as a 13-year-old was important to me," he expands. "It's so much about Dublin. Funny, very clever and still quite beautiful with a bit of a slap in the back. The Irish have a knack: someone dies and they have an almighty piss-up. That's what I got from Joyce and Finnegan's Wake. You can be serious about stuff but you can have a laugh in your own way." Mark Greaney Submitted by: helsinkiwinner
