Music For Dead Birds
Galway, County Galway
Jimmy Monaghan: Guitar/Vocals

Born on separate continents in 1988, Music For Dead Birds formed after meeting at an outdoor music in the summer of 2007.
We recorded our debut album 'And Then It Rained For Seven Days..' for the Irish label Rusted Rail, which was released in 2009. Around this time we played with lots of bands around Ireland, such as Phosphorescent, Villagers, O'Death, Tenpastseven, Emmy The Great & The Ghostwood Project.
After a year hiatus we began to construct 'Vitamins', an album of ten songs, old and new, which would be recorded in a studio over a weekend. This album was released in digital format on April 2014.
"Given more exposure, there's no excuse for this band remaining a little known revelation." AU Magazine
