Andy Rourke (Smiths Bass Player) replaces Mani (Primal Scream)

It is with regret that CPU Records have to announce that Mani has had to pull out of the upcoming CPU gigs in Wexford and Dublin. This is due to the death of one of Manis close friends. He would like to let anyone know who was coming to see him that he is sorry he can't appear. He has promised to appear for CPU in October so stayed tuned.

The good news is that in his place for both Wexford and Dublin CPU shows is the bass player from Legendary guitar group 'The Smiths' Andy Rourke

Andy Rourke is now playing with Vinny Perculiar alongside other Smiths member Mike Joyce who he regularly DJ's with. Uncut magazine recently said about this band

'A splendid dose of self deprecating mirth somewhere between Badly Drawn Boy and Baby Bird...if Tony Hancock had made pop records they would have sounded like this'

Maybe all you Smiths fans will get to hear some of this material in Andys set.

Andy who has worked co-writting some songs with Morrisey after The Smiths has notched up an impressive catalogue also working alongside Badly Drawn Boy, Bonehead (Oasis), Sinead O'Connor, The Pretenders, Aziz Ibrahim (guitar player Stone Roses and Ian Brown-solo) and Jeep to name but a few. Over the past few years he has being DJing everywhere recently appearing in Glastonbury. Andy stepped in at the last minute to replace Mani, much to the relief of all at CPU, who are delighted to have such an influential musican headline one of their shows.
Thankfully the other acts on the bill stay the same so in The Regal Lodge in Wexford on Friday the 24th September the lineup is

Andy Rourke, The Subtonics, StoneOcean, Subscene

And in The Hub, Dublin On Saturday 25th September the lineup is

Andy Rourke, The Subtonics, StoneOcean, Grum

Tickets are available at the door from 8:00pm @€10

We aplogise to anyone who was coming to see Mani at these shows but hopefully you'll come along anyway for what should be a great night.
