Chaotic, honest, silly and solemn, Dundalk songwriter, performer, provocateur and force of nature Jinx Lennon has been pushing boundaries in music and art since the early 80’s. A punk poet that lives to challenge the norm and give a voice to the disenfranchised, Lennon’s music is run through with a prickly Irish wit. Never arriving at a point of exasperation without a wry smile or a barbed joke, Jinx is a truly unique artist and a jewel of the domestic underground.
“It’s all about the energy and giving these wilder places a chance. It’s all about making your own mythology. I love it because I don’t know what’s going to happen next in the Jinx Lennon mythology. It’s like Brian Boru and that’s what keeps me going.” – Lennon speaking to The Irish Times.
2016 saw the simultaneous release of two new albums from Lennon; Magic Bullets of Madness to Uplift the Grief Magnets and Past Pupil Stay Sane. Each with their own unique sound, mood and atmosphere, they offer a view at modern Ireland through the eyes of a fiercely independent artist with a voice that demands and deserves our attention.
