Mundy Fever is back as July crawls around the corner. This wet July you can hear his hit on most radio shows and this year not only "July" but "Galway Girl" too!
Last time mundy was in limerick he gave out to the audience down in dolans for asking for such hits.
Has he gone and shot himself in the foot with "Galway Girl"? If he doesn't want to have this at gigs then why does he keep bringing out crowd pop fodder?
Like him or love him I always go back to the mundy I like. The mundy of old, the one that was striving to survive sans crowd pleasers and sing-alongs. What im referring to his"Jelly Legs" is first and best album. Edmund on guitar/vocals and a great sound. Raw!
I went and got his new single called "Fever" and would you believe it he is back to the mundy of old, simple acoustic goodness. Not only that the single is for charity and helps the cause of the burma relief and can be bought worldwide on itunes and as a CD single (with extra track Strawberry Blood).
So can we expect a new album of these types of treasures or is it back to poptastic crowd pleasers? Who knows?

Mundy plays Dolans 8th of August ( Don't ask for July or Galway Girl on the night please)
All this talk of one of the greatest concerts of the year has made me start to listen to the great man again, after requiring "Ten New Songs" from a friend, it has brought me closer to the fact why the hell didn't I go to his gig.
