In be amongst the highs, we catch the equally surreal worlds of The Amazing Few and Jinx Lennon. The Amazing Few seem to work on the same on-stage-party ethos as The Go! Team, except lifted direct from a seriously muddled mind. They’re somewhat less musically inspiring than the London band’s cheerleaders, and revel in a kind of cabaret shock factor, but it does little for us. Jinx Lennon, whose built a reputation on beats layered with the oddest of social observation, seems more like a machine gun spattering of assorted disconnected phraseology than anything coherent, though his text sunglasses are memorable, at least

MAN V ENERGY VAMPIRE-BEHOLD THIS S-S-SELF INDULGENCE GENE GALWAY THEATRE FESTIVAL
Jinx Lennon gets theatrical with new show on post-boom Ireland
October 27, 2011 - 6:00am
Arts Week with Judy Murphy - firstname.lastname@example.org
Fans of Dundalk singer Jinx Lennon who are used to seeing him perform his hard-hitting songs in concert venues around Galway can prepare for a change of scene as he presents his new theatre show at Nuns Island Arts Centre this weekend.
The unusually titled show, Man V Energy Vampire – Behold this S-S-Self Indulgence Gene is running as part of Galway Theatre Festival and has been in development for the past few months.
Jinx (real name David) describes it as a “bizarre manual on how to stay sane and find integrity in post-boom Western society”.
“A lot of lyrics in my songs have been begging for theatrics,” says Jinx about this show, which features the singer and his alter ego, Free State Nova, in a mix of music, visual imagery and social commentary on the post-boom state of the Irish nation.
“My alter ego is standing as a Dickensian character, like the ghost of Christmas past, present and future,” Jinx explains, adding that his show speaks to people who “might not have a voice in modern society”.
Although this move into theatre is a new departure for the folk/punk singer and campaigner, it’s not an entirely unexpected one for Jinx, who was recently described by Irish Times reviewer Brian Boyd as “a rare talent”.
“In my old band, which I played in during the 1990s, we did a lot of theatrics,” he says, adding that their props included mirrors, worms and vacuum cleaners.
And a couple of years ago Jinx took part in a series called Parlour Plays on RTÉ Radio 1, in which some of the characters from his songs were brought to life for a radio drama. That made him eager to explore the medium further, he says.
Man V Energy Vampire – Behold this S-S-Self Indulgence Gene will include cracked mirrors, a film, knives, screwdrivers, a six-string guitar and bullhorn noisemaker, as well as a tape recorder and mini disk player for a disembodied voice.
Jinx, who has written some new material for this show, says that the message in the songs is reinforced by this voice and by background imagery.
He describes this new format as “slipping sideways into the world that’s already there in the lyrics and making it more visual”.

Ireland is a classic Ken Rogoff-state, a country whose sovereign debt woes can clearly be traced to the cost of bailing out its banking system, and the fact that its banks are still having problems have thrust the country back into the European sovereign debt maelstrom BUSINESS INSIDER Yes there is a lot of pain out there and not enough passion about the shityness............................................

Just when you thought you had him pegged-rusted railway girders, smokestacks, petrolheads and lugubrious self-harm in the leisure-suit celebritocracy, Jinx Lennon sinks his arms to the elbows in the barrel of molasses that is atomised, free state anonymous Ireland and plucks out a gem that would make Burt Bacharach proud. The Orange Cranes Of Greenore is Ginsberg and Hal David on their holidays in Louth-certainly. But it is also an indication of just how deep Lennoní»s reserves actually are, and just how tender and surprising his imagination can be. Andy Williams sings Eraserhead. If Kavanagh was a mystic on a five-bar gate, Jinx sits on a milk churn,
