Q&A Always the sixth When did ye first start playing together as a band? We first started practicing in March 2010. We all knew each other from school, and had an interest in pop punk so it just kind of took off from there. At our first practice we played so loud that the rowing pipes fell off the garage. What did your parents have to say about that? They weren’t too happy, the following Saturday we had to repair them, leading to Gregor falling off the ladder, not being able to play the drums for 3 months. So we didn’t have the best of starts.

P-2issue 1

How long was it until ye started to establish yourselves in the local music scene? We played our first gig 2 weeks after Gregor got better, and from then on we just continued to play gigs in Wick, Orkney, Inverness and Thurso. When did ye do your first recording? We did our first recording with FML productions in Thurso, we recorded a 3 song ep with which we went to have some success with. One of the songs was a cover of Ricky Martins Livin la vida loca. It was a bit gay, but it got us played on the radio which was cool. So after getting your music played on the radion, What was the next step for Always the Sixth?

After the success of “Livin la vida loca” we got offered a slot to play at Belledrum. That was probably my favourite gig we have ever played. It was a much bigger crowd than we were used to, and just the atmosphere of playing at a festival was amazing. Getting free access to the festival after the gig was pretty awesome too, we got absolutely steaming after the gig. And Rockness? Ya, we played Rockness last summer. It was amazing. Getting to chill out in the performer’s area with Example and Skrillex was pretty cool. We all felt like proper celebrities for the weekend. It was one of those weekends that we didn’t want to end. Oh well, there is always next year.

Jefl & hyde The transition from the country to the big smoke

P-3 issue 1


t was a typical scene for 1 O’clock in the morning outside a small, inner city Dublin music venue. Throngs of people loitering outside in the smoking area, sweaty, drunken and full of opinion’s on the gig. The Button factory in Dublin is notorious for being the hang out spot for what may be described as the “cool kids”. Your stereotypical indie enthusiasts from the city. Such a crowd can often be quite hard to impress, especially for new bands playing in “their” local venue. But it’s even more difficult if you’re a band that they might call “culchies” (anyone who lives outside of Dublin). The “culchies” that had the stage on the night in question were little known Nenagh band Jefl & Hyde. A band that in the last year have come from being stuck to the confines of a small town music scene to earn their right to play in some of the top venues in cities around the country. “Mithra-Grandchamp” their song strangely named after a French race-horse opened proceedings. With a strong synth based hook and catchy lyrics this song more than won over the crowd, many of which admittedly had never even heard of the band before the night. It seems from the start the “boys from the country” confidently playing what can only be described as robust indie rock were to be a hit with the Dublin audience. Midway through what was a fast paced, rousing set, charismatic front man John O’Duffy seemed to have every hand in the venue clapping along to their song “Ringo”, a song written as tribute to The Beatles drummer Ringo Star. They

seemed to have everyone in the venue at their fingertips apart from one person. From the beginning of the gig there was noticeable figure sitting alone. He was middle-ages, with hair to his shoulders and branding a Metallica t-shirt. This is not the stereotypical young indie kid seen in plenty brandished around the dancefloor.

He was the one person in the place I did not expect to see showing any appreciation to the music and up until one of the Jefl’s final few songs “Lucifer” I was right. I’m not sure if it was as this song has a slightly Satanic name, but this song managed to grab his attention. He had sat in his seat motionless (despite a few trips to the bar) throughout the whole gig until now. Mid-way through the first chorus he proceeded to stand in order to get a better look at the happenings on stage, shortly after which he began to clap and at one stage I’m pretty sure I seen him attempting to sing along. For the final few songs he could be seen jumping around on the centre of the dance floor much the amusement of the people around him. This was testimony to what was a display of musical talent and showmanship. I’m not trying to say that this band are to be the next huge thing on the international music scene, as they say, “you’re only as good as your next gig”. However this small venue on the night seemed to capture something that showed signs of huge potential and great things to come. As the band closed with newly recorded single “Gaeso” the crowd screamed for one more tune. They never returned to the stage. Maybe it was as they were under pressure from club owners to finish up shortly because of strict licencing laws, or maybe they just knew their job here had been done.

Pulse magazing - Issue 1

1. Wordage Articles should be no more than 2500 words. Reviews should be limited to 750 words. 2. Layout Typeface and Size Where possible, work should be submitted in Garamond, size 12. Paragraphs All paragraphs should be left-only justified. Any ‘further reading’ or ‘references’ paragraphs should follow the main text, in roman. These should be indicated by ‘Further reading:’ or ‘References:’ in normal text with information running on. 3. Punctuation Full Points The stop at the end of a sentence is always followed by one space, never two. Quotation Marks Use single quotes throughout, except when quoting within single quotation marks. Then use double quote marks. Apostrophes Do not use an apostrophe for plurals: The job of PCs in the 1990s became difficult. (correct) The job of PC’s in the 1990’s became difficult. (incorrect) Ellipses Ellipses are made up of three dots only. They should never be preceded or followed by a full point, comma, colon or semicolon. 4. Numbers  Write out numbers one to nine as words unless they relate to a unit of measurement or are linked by a dash: 7pm, £2, 9km, 5–14   

Write out a number if it starts a sentence. Put commas in thousands: 1,000 Write out ordinal numbers: first, eleventh. Over 100 use numbers, keeping the ‘st’ on the same line: 101st

Units of Measurement  Avoid the decimal place in money, unless absolutely necessary: £1 not £1.00 and 99p not £0.99. But, It cost me £3.57 would be correct.  £6.3 billion, not £6,300,000,000 (one billion is defined as one thousand million)  Dollars are assumed to be US, unless otherwise indicated, eg NZ$. Dates  Write out as 17 November 2002 or Sunday 17 November 2002  The 80s  1990s  The 21st century  The class of ’89  1995–2002, but 1955–6

Time Write out as eleven o’ clock, but if using a number make sure ‘am’ or ‘pm’ follows without a space and no full points. It was 11.57pm when the gunshot was heard. 5. Abbreviations Upper-case Do not use full stops between the capital letters of the abbreviation: BBC, not B. B. C. Write out the name of an organisation in full the first time you use it (unless it is universally recognisable, e.g. the CIA), using capitals for the key words only, and place the abbreviation or acronym in brackets after it: the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). From then on just use the abbreviation or acronym. Lower-case Use full points without spaces where abbreviations are used within the text, but note that abbreviations that retain the first and last letters of a word do not take a full point. St, Mr, Mrs, Dr, Ltd If the abbreviation does not end with the final letter of the full word, then it should have a full point.Circa, however, is abbreviated as c only. Use a full stop followed by a space: E. B. White. Measurements Metric and imperial measurements are never followed by a full point, and plurals do not have ‘s’. Use the abbreviation when preceded by numbers in the text. In text set in the present and recent past, use metric measurement, but note that miles is still held to be more acceptable than kilometres as they remain in common use, particularly on all British road signs and maps. While consistency within the text is crucial, do not try to change common expressions to metric, but leave as ‘tons of love’, ‘within an inch of his life’, ‘you live miles away’, etc. 6. Italics Italics should be used sparingly for emphasis. Use italics for foreign words, but check whether thay are now accepted in English. Use italics for titles of newspapers and magazines, although the definite article of a newspaper is usually in roman lower case. Titles of books, plays, films, TV programmes, records or CDs, ships and works of art are all in italic, but not short stories, songs or extracts. These should be in quotation marks. 8. Preferred Expressions Language used to describe people should be inclusive, inoffensive and person-focused. Do not use gender-specific language unless you are referring to one sex in particular. Use plurals, plural pronouns or the person’s profession to avoid ‘he/she’ awkwardness.
