For those of you – and there is a lot – who are still wondering what exactly is hidden behind this weird name/project The Pigtown Fling, Noel Hogan and John Greenwood respectively producer and creative director of this big collaborative musical project recently recorded a small video where they clearly explain what it’s all about.

If you are following Noel on his Tumblr account you may have seen these last months a lot of pictures of musicians working with him in studio very conscientiously. Pictures were published raw without real comments or larger explanations so if you were not paying attention closely you probably just understood that Noel was doing some music for his hometown on the occasion of the Limerick 2014 city of culture. If you recognize yourself in these last few words or if you never heard or understood what was this project all about, then this video – which is a sort of Pigtown Fling EPK – is made for you. Just focus 4 minutes and all will be clearer.

The next step will be a presentation of the 18 tracks live on stage on the 20th of september 2014 in Limerick.

In the last few weeks The Cranberries guitarist Noel Hogan and other Irish musicians have been busy in a studio recording The Pigtown Fling album to support The Special Olympics Ireland.

The recording session has started in May and finished two days ago. You can see lots of  Noel’s photos from the session here.

According to the previous information, Noel Hogan will participate in the Pigtown Fling project, “which will tour the [Limerick] city in a music bus throughout 2014 to encourage and support local musicians to create original work (‘Pigtown’ is one of Limerick’s nicknames, referring to the city’s thriving bacon curing industry.)”

October 26, 2013  |  Comments Off on Noel working on a film soundtrack?  |  by Jury  |  Noel Hogan

It seems like we all need some break from yesterday’s shocking news from The Cranberries camp, so here’s some good news : apparently The Cranberries guitarist Noel Hogan is working on a film soundtrack. At least, that’s what he wrote in his Tumblr post a few days ago: “New Work. Film soundtrack.”

Sounds pretty mysterious. We don’t know the film title yet, but as soon as we do we’ll let you know.
