Can you tell me more about your band's name? It has awful associations in the US.

Hi Sarah,

Me and my brother, the two founding members of the band, are Lynches - hence the name. Here in Ireland the term does not have the same connotations as it does in the US.

Best regards,

Ian

P.S. "Lynched"? What would Dubs (like me) know about that - it's a Galway thing!

Leenia, if you want to take musicians to task over their choice of band name,
you'll find far worse to take offence at here .

Probably not the place for this discussion, but even if the choice of the name Lynched had been a deliberate decision to refer to specific horrific crimes (eg the hanging of black people in the US), finding the name objectionable is surely tantamount to saying "I don't like to be reminded that bad things happen". A reference to a horrific thing is not the same as an endorsement of that horrific thing; it could be said to be a gesture of solidarity towards the victims of that horrific thing.

Lynched are mighty. I've seen and heard them collectively and individually a number of times and I could not recommend them highly enough. They have grabbed traditional singing by the scruff of the neck and given it a good shake. They are the new voice of Irish traditional singing. Go see them. You will not be disappointed. And concerning their name and the connotations it has for some across the big pond;`be assured that not one of the four members of Lynched have a racist bone in their body.

Hear hear, Fergie.
Lynched are indeed the mightiest new Irish band to come our way in a long while. Let's not get sidetracked in discussions about the band name - it's the music that counts, surely. Go see 'em!!

How much should we worry about the interfering comments of a couple of crotchety biddy bodies from the US of A ???

Next they'll be insisting the Beatles condoned child and wife beating,
and the brutal punishment of slaves by their wicked masters.

The Rolling Stones were insensitive to the victims of earthquakes and landslides.

The Who mock the World Health Organization and the plight of all those poor souls blighted by ebola.

Van Morrison has a cruel disregard for shop workers being made jobless by the closure of Morrisons supermarkets.


Choose your band or stage name carefully to avoid upset and outrage !!!

Thanks everyone for the kind words - and hope to meet you in Tavistock Geoff!

As for the name - it is simply a pun on our family name (to be understood as [We are the] Lynched) that we always intended to express solidarity with the persecuted, oppressed and the marginalised the world over. High falutin' stuff to some perhaps, but we have all been active in various anti-racist campaigns here in Dublin for a long time.

We have been playing under the name for about 13 years now and have had many different discussions with many different people of many different ethnic and national backgrounds. We choose to keep it because it often brings up discussions such as this where we can clearly state how we stand on such matters!

All the best,

Ian

I have heard differing reviews from people I whose judgement I respect and so am at a loss as to the band's musical merit.

Is there anywhere I can have a listen?

Lynched in Ireland relates to judicial killing without justice. (Not that I'd think there was ever any justice in judicial killing, but let it go, let it go…)

The verb 'to lynch' is said to come from a mayor of Galway in 1493 called James Lynch FitzStephen, whose 21-year-old son Walter killed Lynch's Spanish foster son in a moment of jealous rage when he fancied the Spanish lad was getting too lovey with his own intended wife.

As chief magistrate, James condemned his son to death. Walter was popular, and the people of Galway mobbed the jail trying to free him. Since no one else would hang his son, James did so himself. The house where it happened is still pointed out in Galway.

While the term as used in America for murder used in the interracial terrorisation of black citizens is familiar to Irish people, it's not the main reference here, as it would be in the US.

Lynched can currently be seen performing (albeit only one track) on the BBC folk awards highlights programme being shown on the BBC red button channel 601. Until Friday 6th May, apparently (and today it seems to be going round continuously).
