Following up on the success of Cathy Davey’s new album “The Nameless” which last week took home the #1  spot in the Irish Album and Indie charts, this week Conor O’Brien has reasons to pop open some bubbly. With the impending sold out Dublin gig, a cracking gig we’re told in the Set Theatre, Kilkenny, another gig in The Roisin Dubh in Galway tonight and an immense performance on Jools Holland has pretty much set up Conor for the news that he is now the #1 Album in Ireland and apparently by quite some way in sales.

So thats back to back Irish releases, Cathy Davey’s – The Nameless and Villagers – Becoming a Jackal

Villagers album launches in The UK on the 24th of May – Lets hope he can replicate this success over there too!
