Big Boy Foolish:

Big Boy Foolish are Ricky Dineen and Liam Heffernan, a post-punk duo from

the northside of Cork City. Formed organically from an old friendship and the

hunger to be playing music. They both appeared on Kaught at the Kampus

(Reekus Records).

Dineen was guitarist in the seminal bands Nun Attax, Five go Down to the Sea?

and Beethoven.

Heffernan played with Mean Features and Nun Came Back and he has worked

as an Actor.

And Nun Came Back were formed in 2014 to commemorate the music of

Dineen and Finbarr Donnelly, who passed away in 1989. It was out of this

project that Dineen and Heffernan began writing new material, playing their

inaugural gig in 2019, on Donnelly’s 30th anniversary.

During the surreal time of lockdown they released a number of singles and

since restrictions have relaxed, have been playing gigs around Ireland and


Their first album ‘Stall the Ball’ was released on January 26th 2024, on digital

platforms followed shortly by a vinyl release.

The Revolt:

The Revolt is bringing their unique sound to join the Post Punk Revival.

Introducing The Revolt described as “a dynamic punk band set to make waves in the music scene. Comprising of Jess, Kieran, Sarah and Keith (Smelly). These four are ready to ignite stages with their raw energy, fierce lyrics, and a unique blend of musical backgrounds.” – Ricky Dineen, Big Boy Foolish.
