Republic of Loose have gone through their most successful few months in terms of PR while not releasing anything for ages. Firstly Irvine Welsh championed the band by saying in Q magazine that his favourite album of the naughties was 'Aaagh!'.
Earlier this month they headlined the Phantom FM first Friday gig for Haiti.
Here's the Republic of Loose doing a decent cover of R Kelly's Ignition:
They are now scheduled to support Ash in a secret location [Andrew's Lane but shhhh] on March 20th as part of some 7Up marketing gimmick.
Finally they are on the FM104 annual help a Dublin Child gig in The Olympia with The Coronas and Joe Echo. It's on April 9th and details from: http://www.fm104.ie/utilities/content_page.aspx?id=2160
