The Needables

Folk // Lucan/Swords, Dublin

“Brilliant! An Americana Irish rock band are few and far between, and The Needables are a very good band indeed!” – Peter Nagle 2 U I Bestow Blog.

“If you’re looking for some of that sweet sweet country music, then you’ve come to the right place” – Will Murphy The Thin Air Magazine

“3 big potato sacks full of love” – Lindi Ortega

Welcome to Ireland’s own blend of Americana!

The Needables are Beat and Floyd Needable, both former fishermen, both former members of a cartoon themed barbershop quintet, and both men living lives of blissful ignorance, who, on two non-simultaneous occasions, woke up to the realisation that the strings of their hearts made a kinda country twang.

In the same way that caterpillars sometimes turn into rather unattractive looking butterflies, Beat and Floyd, armed with two tin cans connected by a piece of string, some musical instruments made out of cardboard boxes, twine, and sticky-back plastic, an old tape recorder, and a first aid kit in case of emergencies, locked themselves into an abandoned mud shack, turned the dial up to 'Country', and emerged as The Needables.
