ALAN McGEE‘s Poptones label have signed ex-Undertones guitarist DAMIEN O’NEILL.
A spokesperson for Poptones told NME.COM that O’Neill signed with the label approximately two weeks ago, and has already completed work on his debut solo album under the name A Quiet Revolution.
The album, also called ‘A Quiet Revolution’, was recorded at Kevin Shields‘ studio in London and will be released through Poptones in January.
A spokesperson for Poptones said: “It’s an instrumental album. The music is a cross between Egyptian influenced music and My Bloody Valentine.”
In addition, O’Neill is to host a radio show on the Poptones website, [url=]www.poptones.co.uk, in the next couple of weeks, which will showcase his favourite songs.
O’Neill was previously the guitarist in seminal pop-punksters The Undertones and following the band’s demise helped form ’80s cult band That Petrol Emotion.
