We have just uploaded two new songs……
Plasters- A song about a homeless man who finds an old newspaper on the street. So down on his luck he has no food, no bed, no friends, no family left and no idea what day it is. he investigates the paper to pass the time. The faded news paper has a date on the top right corner that he realizes is same day as his little girls birthday he has not seen in years. Did we mention it was raining? ( UN MASTERED)
Bruce Lee Movie- We describe the first 4 min of Fists of Furry the greatest Chinese drama of all times. (UN MASTERED)
Both song where written when Dan Shanahan was in Ireland writing songs with us. He will always be Amazing Dan.

THE AMAZING FEW
NEW SINGLE -RIC ‘ O BARRY
“Ric O’ Barry”
The Amazing Few
The newest single from Dublin based Psycho-Pop band The Amazing Few, “Ric O’ Barry “ is a song inspired entirely by the Oscar award-winning documentary “The Cove”.Named after Ric O’Barry, the man who trained Flipper to be a star, the single will be launched on June 29th with a performance at the Pride Festival in Merrion Square. Ric O’ Barry himself will be flying in for the occasion to meet and watch his favourite Irish band in action.
Working back in the 1960s for Miami Seaquarium, O’Barry captured and trained dolphins, including the five dolphins who played the role of Flipper in the popular American TV-series of the same name. When Kathy, the dolphin who primarily played Flipper most of the time, died in his arms, OʼBarry realized that capturing dolphins and training them to perform silly tricks is simply wrong. From that moment on, Ric knew he must rededicate himself to a new cause.
Ric now saves dolphins from cruelty, dolphinariums, and any form of captivity.
The Amazing Few play Psycho-Pop, a unique form of story telling that encompasses elements of Ska, Punk, and Anti-Folk. This 11 piece group of like-minded individuals, have been collected over the course of the last four years. The songs are expressive and explosive. Ric O’ Barry will be the 3rd release from the band and all profits from the sale of the single will go straight to the foundation Ric set up, Dolphin Project.
“Ric has inspired and educated so many people around the world to change habits, create safe habitats and break traditions. When we first watched the Cove we where gob smacked by the story of Ric O’ Barry, Flipper and the whole marine animal industry, the song just came out, it was something we felt strongly. The more we have got to know Ric the more we realized his work was so important and to give his foundation The Dolphin Project all the profits from the sale of the single seemed obvious.“ Keiron Black lead singer in The Amazing Few
