We spoke with Andy Cairns of Irish band Therapy? before their second of two shows at the Button Factory in Dublin. He told us about why they play so rarely on their native island and what inspired him to write anthemic tracks like ‘Screamager’ when he was still a schoolboy. Do you see yourself doing anniversary tour for other albums coming up like Semi-Detached and Suicide Pact? Andy: I think because, worldwide, they’re our biggest selling records, I suppose that’s why we were asked to do those shows. Alan: What one album changed your life the most? Andy: The first album, as opposed to a single, was Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures, because I was into the Buzzcocks and the Pistols and the Clash, but I was too young to have been there when it happened first time.
Andy Cairns' usual subject matter remains, but the songwriting is at its least clichéd. It's no masterpiece, but it's probably their second or third best record - hardly something to fret over.
