Republic Of Loose: 'Aaagh!'

'10 Dubliners rapping is always going to sound a bit granddad-at-the-wedding.'

The Loose clearly have dreams of pop stardom on a Timberlake/NERD scale, and with meaty beats like ‘Aaagh!’ they come close. But their grand ambitions occasionally lapse into Fun Lovin’ Criminals-style misdemeanour, and 10 white Dubliners rapping about “Your kind of homie, yo” is always going to sound a bit granddad-at-the-wedding. Yo.
