Far From Avocados are THRILLED to announce Blindboy Boatclub as MC for Publish or Perish: The Content Conference on November 10.
Co-founder of subversive rap outfit The Rubberbandits, Blindboy is also a prominent social commentator in his own right. At once caustic and profound, he steadfastly campaigns for mental health awareness among young Irish men, and last year famously expounded society’s need for feminism.
His book The Gospel According to Blindboy is due for release this month (and available for pre-order now). A compilation of ‘short stories and visual art’, it features a blurb endorsement from, among others, mega director Danny Boyle, who used a Rubberbandits track in the most highly anticipated sequel of the year, T2: Trainspotting.
The Rubberbandits have just released the video for Sonny, a gritty and haunting number that confronts the theme of suicide head-on, with the devastating candour we’ve come to expect of this Limerick duo.
