A Few Tips From a Reader’s Wife
By Niall James Holohan of Reader’s Wife
For musicians based in Ireland, XMusic will match any price you can find on
line, for all the gear they stock. I bought my Orange amp there.
Books I would recommend:
Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac. There’s loads.
My favorite piece of gear is my Orange Tiny Terror
There’s a few things I can’t live on the road without.
- The other three dudes in the band!
- My iPhone.
- An audience.
- An oyster card.
- A hug or two.
- The occasional bed.
- My sanity.
Personal Health – The little bit every day is better than alot, once a week.
RyanAir is shit service but you can’t argue with 20 quid return to the UK & we do that alot (sneak the guitars on!).
Best Venue in Dublin is The Academy.
Best Venue in London is The Luminaire.
Couch surfing has saved our arses many times!!

Bio: The band took to the road, fast becoming one of Ireland’s most active bands in Europe. Niall knew, instinctively, that if these boys played his tunes long enough, they would eventually make Reader’s Wives their own. It worked. Two years on, Reader’s Wives are now a solid four piece with a sound like no other independent band doing the rounds.
