Seamus Fogarty – The Old Suit
Seamus explains how the EP got started: “I put a crappy drum machine, a crappier synth and a cheap guitar in a plastic bag and took myself off to a cottage in a restored famine village on the Southwest coast of Ireland to write. I came back to London refreshed, having written no songs, and went out for a few drinks with my friend Ed Dowie after which we challenged each other to write something new every two weeks. I trawled through various phone recordings I’d made while on my (non)writing trip, hoping to find some magic fragment, and I found a line about an old suit which I’d written while reflecting on the loss of my friend Willie Meighan. I wanted to make something a bit different from the album (except for Emma Smith’s strings which go on everything), so I took a chance and asked Mike Lindsey if he’d lend an ear or two and help mix and produce the track, and this is what we ended up with.”
