Crossmolina/Ballycastle, County Mayo
The three of them met in their first year of secondary school and found that they all shared a passion for independent rock music. Shane Callaghan, lead vocalist and guitar, had been playing guitar and bass since he was ten and showed Ronan Corcoran, bass, his first bass lines. James Sheehan, drums, inspired by his two friends started teaching himself drums on his brothers old kit in his shed. It wasn't long before the boys were over at each others houses jaming and playing covers of their favourite bands.
5 years later and Renegade Neighbour release their first original song, Pints Of Beer. Pints Of Beer is an 'anthem for doomed youth', capturing the general feeling of a hopeless future. ''All this shit is going on with the economy and all we can do is go out every weekend and get hammered!'' says Shane the song writer.
With a strictly 'no bullshit' moto on songwriting, their songs go from melodic guitar riffs and pepy drums to smashing symbols and erupting bass lines.
