Dr. Mindflip with support by The Curley Organ
Dr. Mindflip are a delightfully-bizarre bunch that weave their considerable musical chops into a scintillating blur of styles. This is Supertramp on the tear with David Lynch, the manic energy of The Mighty Boosh jamming with the sneering spectre of Frank Zappa – intense, atmospheric, impossibly catchy music. The Doctor himself holds the show together on keys and coaxes jazzy avant-pop from the aristocratic Owly, soulful sax-wielding Sage, gently unnerving Dollhead, and a very cheerful drummer.
Last year, Dr Mindflip packed Mullarkey’s Bar with grooves and grins – we’re delighted to have them back to give our 2018 programme a potent shot of the surreal. Fresh from a string of summer festivals (including Vantastival, Doolin Folk Festival, Cruthú, Arcadian Field, Secret Village, Stendhal, and Electric Picnic) the good Doctor and his musical minions are bound to give Clifden another unforgettable night.
This record is definitely the weirdest album I’ve listened to in the last year… it’s cheesy, trippy, jazzy and I love it. Sweet piano melodies and bitter vocals follow with additions of a trippy organ and saxophones. At times haunting and at times spectacular. This album is just one that a person has to experience for themselves! – Reyt Good Music
