As enigmatic, challenging and ethereal as early epic performances by Bowie, Zeppelin or even Floyd, O Lochlainn’s performances can turn on a dime from a comforting lullaby to a full-on, in-your-face protest song. Listen to his A Capella version of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘War Pigs’, and you’ll soon see why the New York glitterati are a little hot under the collar. Nobody turned a hair when Ozzy sang it – after all, he played it for laughs – but Fionn is deadly serious. You don’t need to have any political position though, to appreciate Fionn’s mastery of guitar, piano and mandola (a kind of industrial-duty mandolin, as far as I can gather). If somebody doesn’t sign this man soon, I’ll be starting my own record label . . .
