‘The Vandal’ is a one man show that SPITS his life, his FEELINGS, his FEARS and his HEART out in his songs. An honest rapper with nothing to lose and everything to gain, he’s only in it for the music, and is long way away from fast cars and money. His music is real and has been sculpted to showcase something that is unique to Scotland, the sound of a raw American ghetto rapper, with the lyrics of an award winning story teller” > LOOK OUT.
“Morrison’s range of voice is stunning-from the deep drumbeat of true grit to the high-pitched timbre of irretrievable loss. Here is a landscape of the human condition, fully realized. Often harsh, often heartbreakingly poignant, Morrison’s characters grasp for the small truths in their lives, some coming up empty-handed, others given that one shot at redemption. A magnificent, kaleidoscopic view of the extraordinary nature of ordinary lives, rendered in lucid, pitch-perfect prose.
Shocking Stockings (originally Niall-on & the Shocking Stockings) were a post-punk new-wave band. Their “ironic” repertoire of pastiches varied from Reggae through Funk and Disco to Rock – a kind of early prequel to a Scissor Sisters/Darkness cross. Typically there was a seam of humorous political and social commentary in the lyrical content.
Shocking Stockings released the single RED CHINA on the Carrere Record label. This was a remix by Philip Chevron taken from the album NYLON (which may be rereleased by Mosa Records). The track PLASTIC ROCK has been renamed OBAMA ROCKS by the bands former record company MOSA RECORDS and released as a download only single.
SHOCKING STOCKINGS were:
Niall MacMahon ………guitars and vocals
Bree MacMahon ……….vocals
Dave Bourke …………….bass guitar
Terry O’Sullivan ………drums
