Sixteen Dead Men

County Dublin

David James Ross writes:
'AJ's work explores the relationship between emotional memories and urban spaces.

With influences as diverse as Slim Galliard and Francis Bacon, new combinations are created from both traditional and modern textures.

Ever since he was a student he has been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the human condition. What starts out as triumph soon becomes debased into a tragedy of greed, leaving only a sense of chaos and the chance of a new reality.

As spatial impressions become clarified through emergent and personal practice, the listener is left with a statement of the inaccuracies of our era.'

AJ Lonergan, originally from Templeogue in Dublin, writes and performs music under the name Sixteen Dead Men.

Performing mainly in small intimate venues, AJ is often joined on stage by long time friends; Dave Sullivan (Electric Guitar), Bren Carty (Bass/Vox), Jonny Tennent (Viola/Vox) and Glenn Breslin (Percussion).

Sixteen Dead Men recorded and released an EP on indie label HFWH Records in 2009.
That was followed by several unofficial releases in 2010 such as the hand-painted; Flambaeu and Wild North EP's, which have been well received.

Some kind words about the 2009 EP:

This is a lovely four track EP from up-and-coming Dublin out-fit Sixteen Dead Men.
It features: October, Child of Diane, O! Lover and the heart-warming Irena.
It's a nice selection of laid-back folky based sounds, with hints of rootsy Americana.
Road Records (Dublin), 2009

'O! Lover' is an awesome, awesome track. Incredible craft.
Peter James, (Producer/Artist AtmosWorks) (UK), 2009

Really love it!
Simone Mattiolo – The Bizarre Collection (Italy), 2010
