Hubert Selby Jr. Infants

Alternative // Dublin, Dublin

Based in Dublin City, the Hubert Selby Jr. Infants is made up of four underground music lifers from Waterford, Dublin and Birmingham.

Initially formed from the disintegration of two previous bands -namely Electricals and Weird Feelings - in October 2022, the band released their debut EP, the cheekily titled "Good Evening Pricks, It's the Hubert Selby Jr. Infants" on March 2023. Recorded live in an afternoon by Shaun Cadogan (Unyielding Love, Last Light Studios), it's a raucous introduction designed to sound like a band playing in your living room as per their distinctly no frills. fiercely independent approach. This release received the thumbs up from underground legend Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose, Stooges) who has championed the EP on his "Watt From Pedro" radio show.

Following the release of teaser track "Misery Hill" in Autumn 2023,2024 sees the band mark their vinyl debut, with a 4 song 12" - "Have You Ever Been A Crow..Or An Eel" on UK based Scene Report Records. Welding post hardcore abrasion to melodies that stick in the head for days, "Have You Ever Been A Crow..Or An Eel" is a bolt of nervous energy and anxious melody that comes on like Sebadoh covering the 90s Dischord catalogue in the upstairs of a Dublin dive bar.
