Farewell Future Wives

Announcing the first album release by a member of our Department ... Ronan Swift's long-awaited debut album, Farewell Future Wives, is now out. Opening with an appropriately literary track, 'A Midsummer Night's Email', as Romeo writes to Juliet, it ranges from the long-standing favourite 'Adulterous Thoughts' to 'Advice for Lovers' to 'Interrupted by Cattle'. Great tunes, nifty lyrics, and smooth production values. Irresistible. And the cover's by Old Columban Conrad Frankel.

Email us here (scc.english 'at' if you're looking for a copy (Euro15 each); it can be arranged ...

[added later : go here for our first podcast, which features Ronan discussing this album].

Just received my copy from the artist himself - great to hear many old favourites with happy memories attached.
Horticulturalist, educator, musician, professional Zidane impersonator - do his talents know no bounds?

The answer, Dan is : 'No'. Stay tuned in the next few days for a special treat - an interview with the great man himself. As Eric Cantona might have said, the trawler captain tosses sardines into the water for the pursuing fish to relish.
