A piece of Irish independent music history is now available to stream on various platforms, in the shape of Reekus Records first ever release Kaught at the Kampus.
Recorded live at Reekus founder Elvera Butler’s UCC gig Downtown Kampus and released in 1981, Kaught at the Kampus features live performances from post-punk acts Nun Attax (now called Nun Came Back), Mean Features, Urban Blitz and the original line-up of Microdisney.
A fascinating listen when put in context with everything that was happening in Irish indie music at the time, and how Reekus Records would go on to shape the landscape of our current music scene (launching the career of bands such as the Blades, Microdisney, Aslan, Buffalo Sunn, Gangs & more).
Kaught at the Kampus is a compelling time-piece that looks at out musical roots. Indeed, without the independent punk spirit of those involved paving the way, there would be no TLMT.
