David Mulcahy


David Mulcahy has been writing and recording music since the early 1980's. As a member of The Jean Paul Sartre Experience and Superette, he has gathered a back catalog of 4 albums, 2 EPs, a bunch of singles and many memorable videos.

In early 1998 Dave left Superette to embark on a solo recording project at Arch Hill Recording Studios. This developed into his first solo album 'Oddy Knocky'. Encouraged by the response to his acoustic song 'Waves' taken from the Superette album 'Tiger' he concentrated on recording simple melodic songs in a more intimate or personal style. Although largely an acoustic album, it contains experimentations with electronica, a style of music that Dave has tinkered with for some time.

Christchurch Press
***** "Oddy Knocky is a generous sixteen tracks (not one of them a filler) of simple melodies, gorgeous harmonies, and Mulcahy’s sweet and often haunting vocals. Most of the songs are warm, understated gems, with the occasional guitar jangler thrown in to add musical texture and recollections of his old bands."

Currently Dave lives in Christchurch and occasionally plays and records with his band Spider which consists of himself and two former members of The Tufnels and the Bird Nest Roys.

David and is now a member of Eskimo.

David Mulcahy new band
Posted: Wed Sep 24, 2003 7:11 pm
Getting bored with not making any music David Mulcahy (JPSE, Superette) Rob Mayes (Dolphin, Throw, Springloader) and Michael Daly (YFC and Leadleg) have quit their day jobs to pursue a career in rock and roll. Well not really, but we are spending lots of time cultivating infectiously catch hooky rock songs that are specifically designed to avoid commercial radio approval, just like we like em.

Fans of Mulcahy's work with his previous bands will know that his work is rare with only one solo album released since the disbanding of Superette.

The first release from the band is twisted pop song "twisted fruit" (I am the Inverse Freak) and should be hitting the alternative radio waves (if you can find any left) anytime soon.

And just cos they feel like (and cos Fraser Bodega "insisted") the band are doing gigs in Wellington at Bodega on the 31st October with Sleepers Union and At the Dux de Lux on the 24th of October. Look
out for Eskimo collector beer coasters and novelty teaspoons soon.

Album to follow in due course.
