In September 2015, we went into Windmill Lane Studio in Dublin for a week of recording. We were on a journey and discovery of new music and of ourselves as musicians and a band.
We started with a blank page. No baggage, no agenda, no direction – just a desire to create together a new conversation that binds us together and forges a new path for us moving forward.
What came seemed to drop from the sky and into all of our subconscious and out and meld into the new music.
When we listened back to the takes of the work, we were taken by surprise by something from deep inside of our souls as people and musicians that came out through the speakers and into the studio.
It still surprises us all at different times when we listen back now after many listens.

“LET’S DO THIS THING” became our mantra in the studio. It is a line from one of the new songs and seemed very apt for the title of this new work.

So, with that, we hope you all enjoy this new music as much as we did creating it.

We are looking to reschedule for autumn. Below is a message from Liam on behalf of the band.

Dear Flower friends:

We are in lockdown here in Ireland now. Italy’s situation became an example to the rest of us and we have to respond to stem the flow of this virus . We wanted to and were so much looking foreword to coming over to London to do our thing onstage with all of you . Were it not that we are part of a chain of humanity that includes our vulnerable relatives I believe we all would have thrown caution to the wind and come regardless .

We are healthy . I did not decide until today myself . But the decision had to be made . We have Neighbours and relatives near and around us . Traveling through an international hub running the risk of picking the bug up and carrying it back is a risk that affects not only us but our community as well . Our people here . This is a global happening beyond our comprehension. There are silver linings . The chances for our children to take control of their own education for a while . We have a chance to re evaluate what life and community means to us . Great works could come . A singular wave covering all humanity could have inspiring consequences. Nothing is singularly good or bad . Spring is coming ( it’s here according to St Brigid ) we welcome the new life and a great tide of good health . ‘Love the only engine of survival ‘ LCohen’s soon as we have alternative plans we will share them .

Love and thanks for so many good times past and to come In music

Liam

Hothouse Flowers People 30th Anniversary | 19th April 2018

People Album Cover

In 1988 Hothouse Flowers took to the streets of Dublin to promote the release of their new album titled ‘People’.
Hothouse Flowers were synonymous with busking and street performance during their early careers and returned to the streets playing on Henry Street, O’Connell Street and Grafton Street in support of their new album. The impromptu event attracted hundreds of people at lunchtime on 19 April 1988.

RTÉ News followed the group as they busk their way from Henry Street to Grafton Street, with a stopover at Dublin Millennium Radio Studio with Jimmy Greeley.

Liam Ó Maonlaí and Fiachna Ó Braonáin speak to Teresa Mannion about their success and the joys of playing on the streets of Dublin.
