It’s been a while since my last post so, with no further ado, let me put some fruit onto this cake. Enjoy!
Floating (Jape is Grape EP)
Jape is the alter-ego of Redneck Manifesto member Richie Egan. Hailing from Crumlin, Dublin 12, he purveys an electronica-heavy music tinged with ‘stoner folk’. Jape’s most renowned song ‘Floating’ has been covered by The Raconteurs and The Mighty Stef, to name a few. His debut album ‘Cosmosphere’ was released in 2003 (Volta Records), followed by 2004’s ‘The Monkeys In The Zoo Have More Fun Than Me’ (Trust Me I’m A Thief). Having recently signed with V2 Records (9th May 2007), a third effort is due this year with new material having been debuted live in recent shows. His debut at the SXSW festival in Texas this year (2007) has added much hype and excitement to the future prospects of Jape’s career.
