The The

Matt Johnson's The The is one of the most original bands of the 80s and 90s.

Formed when Johnson was just 21, it's a project that has seen a legion of loyal international fans and has earned him a spate of Top 40 singles. With his unique composition style and powerful, politically-charged lyrics - plus his tendency toward the brazen in interviews - he's regarded as one of the most influential and prolific creators in contemporary music.

From debut album Soul Mining in 1983 all the way to new single We Can’t Stop What’s Coming, released this year, his visionary approach to making music has seen him collaborate with the likes of Johnny Marr and Sinead O’Connor. The latest track comes on the heels of a quiet period for Johnson and is the first release in fifteen years. Taken from The Inertia Variations, an 84-minute documentary centred around Matt Johnson’s twelve-hour conceptual shortwave station Radio Cineola, due for launch in the coming months, it's been highly praised.

See The The perform it and many other original tracks live this summer in the atmospheric surrounds of Dublin's Iveagh Gardens.
