Windings Grows Old Like J

You can’t fight the ageing process – no matter how much you try and deny Old Father Time, he’s going to visit you eventually. Even a hefty dose of botulinum toxin won’t stop him.

One man who recently found himself preoccupied with growing older is Windings, aka Steve Ryan (and band), and he came to a somewhat unusual conclusion – he wants to grow old like J.

Who’s J, I hear you ask?

Why, J Mascis, of Dinosaur Jr fame.

(Hopefully he’ll have better taste in hats.)

Windings’ new album ‘It’s Never Night’ (produced by Tommy McLaughlin, who has also worked with Cathy Davey and Villagers) is out on Friday 8 October, and the band are getting ready for a slew of live dates. Fittingly, it includes one in New York – as part of the CMJ Music From Ireland Showcase on 22 October in the Bowery Poetry Club. J would be proud.
