About Stanley Super 800

Stanley Super 800 are a four-piece indie-rock band from Cork. Their live shows explode with vigorous energy unleashing some of the most original sounds heard since the invention of the ear!

They have released 2 EPs and one full length album, all gaining critical recognition. Tracks like "Summer in the City" and "Voices in the Music" regularly play on the national airwaves. The bands latest release is a new album called "Louder and Clearer" on Irish independent label Sofa Records. It was made over several sessions from August '05 to December '06. It∆s produced by the Swedish based producer Mark O∆Sullivan (DK7, Mighty Quark, Ork). Mark worked closely with the band to bring out their most potent recording so far. For a first taste a single "Gatecrashing" is available as a digital download from downloadmusic.ie in April. The album will be in the shops and available for download on the internet from September 2007.

Live shows, are primarily where Stanley Super 800 have been picking up most of their fans. They have earned their stripes from constantly gigging in everywhere from cow sheds to concert halls. While they occasionally do a stripped down country set, people can generally expect everything from banjos to megaphones and anything from melodic pop to complete electronic meltdowns.

Formed in 2003 from when members of a traditional music group the Ceili Allstars began to record and play using electric instruments, Stanley Super 800 are Stan O∆ Sullivan (guitar, keys and vocals), Flor Rahilly (bass and vocals), Mike Tosh O∆ Sullivan (keys, banjo, clock radio and megaphone) and Dave Hackett (drums and lap-steel). The group is named after the founding member Eoin "Stan" O'Sullivan and a famous solid fuel cooker.
