Debut album ‘DINOSAUR’, now available in all stores Nationwide and on iTunes. Includes the single ‘Long May You Reign’ as performed on RTE’s ‘The Late Late Show’ & on Dave Fanning’s ‘The 11th Hour’ on RTE Television.

John, Shelly & the Creatures formed after a chance meeting they had in a bar in Berlin with two homeless Irish twins named ‘John and Shelly’…its a really good story so we won’t ruin it here for you…

John, Shelly & the Creatures and are made up of band members: Kevin Carlisle (Drums, percussion & vox), Philip Watts d’Alton (guitar, vox, keys, bass, mandolin), Ger Gormley (bass, guitar, mandolin, vox) and Walter (guitar, vox, keys, programming and drums). They are influenced by a wide variety of genres and are unafraid to mix things up when it comes to recording and playing live. ‘With a dazzling array of instruments and songwriting that has been fine-tuned to a striking degree, the foursome’s laidback sound, coupled with gritty lyrics, recalls The Lemonheads’ (Irish Times) and fellow Northern band Snow Patrol. ‘Rather than Knock you off your seat with rambunctious riffs or profound ideas, this band are just effortlessly monumental’ (AU Magazine) and maintain a sense of intrigue whilst being immediately powerful and engaging. The stunning graceful and tender effort of LONG MAY YOU REIGN reads like a summers day smile, whilst their debut album DINOSAUR, is a whole actors handbook of facial expressions.
