Damien Rice was back onstage last night at The Frames one-off For The Birds show in Dublin. More on that gig later today ( a gig very much of two halves). Rice came on as part of the “special guests” segment and played a new tune. Not my cup of tea, but it is in keeping with much of O — so his fans should be pleased. Turns out he played the same tune in Whelans at a Glen Hansard show earlier this month. Video below. Maybe there’ll be a new LP from him this year (his last, 9, came out five years ago).
