LARRY MULLEN Jnr – U2 Interview
Larry Mullen (U2) – “ I heard that band Relish recently…I was just blown away by them...
their songwriting is so great. Amazing.”
BRIAN MAY - Quote
Brian May (Queen) – “ Yes!! I love it – at last a group from this side of
the Atlantic that know what they’re doing!
The guy has a voice to die for and the group sound superb”
MUSIC WEEK (UK)
Given the right support, this (Northern) Irish three-piece have the potential to clean up in the huge album-buyer market.
CLASSIC ROCK Magazine (UK)
They are one of those bands that seem to be able to do everything without compromising, power, melody, class, focus. They’ve got it all. Potentially world class.
NEIL MURRAY – Quote
Neil Murray (Whitesnake, Black Sabbath, et al)
“In my opinion, Relish are the best band to emerge in the last 20 years. Great songs, amazing vocals and excellent musicianship. They should be massively successful by now…I wish I was as talented!”
PHIL COULTER - Quote
Phil Coulter (five times Ivor Novello) – “ (Father, Brother, Lover & Son) will be a household standard”
BILLBOARD Magazine (USA)
Part of Relish’s appeal is that it is seen as representing the new multicultural Ireland. Brothers Ken and Carl Papenfus are black and hail from a family who fled South Africa during the apartheid era, and both sides of the sectarian divide in the North are represented in the lineup.
