Kieran and Derek are joined by Dave Browne from Dublin Band, PictureHouse. Originally signed to London Records in 1994, a rather tumultuous time resulted in the band returning to their native Dublin. They self-financed the release of their debut album “Shine Box”. The album produced a number of popular singles such as “Somebody Somewhere”, “The World and His Dog” and the smash hit “Heavenly Day”. With success in their native Ireland the band toured with fellow Irish band The Saw Doctors on their UK tour in 1996. They later supported Bon Jovi in Dublin in the following year. We also talk of the smash hit Sunburst. Dave talks to the lads about the origins of the band and the stories behind touring with Meat Loaf and the perils of the recording industry.
