  • JAMES VINCENT McMORROW The Less I Knew HHHH Faction Records

    Has anyone managed to figure out James Vincent McMorrow yet? In many ways, the Dublin musician's career to date has been a series of contradictions. He is an artist who courts the mainstream and maintains healthy pockets of fan bases around the world, yet he regularly makes career choices that have probably turned his manager's hair prematurely grey — such as releasing two impromptu albums close together (as he has done in the past with True Care and now with this, the first of two full-length releases in 2022), or deciding to forego promotional duties for a record (as he has also done this time around).

  • History suggests the Government will struggle with inflation

    The current balancing act by the government in relation to the cost of living is inevitably going to come under increasing strain. Warnings that you cannot chase inflation with hefty wage increases and that the essential causes of inflation are beyond domestic control will rest uneasily alongside increased outrage at the punitive price of essentials and demands that the State intervene more aggressively. The frailty of pay talks, combined with energy and fuel pressures and a drop in living standards, will make for a fraught winter.
