Biography

Northern Ireland (1989 – present)

THERAPY? is an band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist/vocalist Andy Cairns and drummer Fyfe Ewing. The band initially recorded their first demo with Andy filling in on bass guitar. To complete the line up, the band recruited bassist Michael McKeegan.
With keen pop sensibilities, a skewed sense of humour and a willingness to draw inspiration from diverse sources (notably punk rock) , Therapy? came to attention in the early 1990s rise of alternative rock, but have endured for more than a decade since; Critic Johnny Loftus writes, “After a ten-plus year career that has seen them outlast competitors and outwit industry attempts at categorization, Therapy? are still headbangers with their thinking caps screwed on tight.”

Current line-up :
Andy Cairns (guitar, vocals) (1989 - )
Michael McKeegan (bass guitar, backing vocals) (1989 - )
Neil Cooper (drums) (2003 - )

    I'm listening to Shameless atm, They couldn't just regurgitate that same album time and time again, Troublegum is a classic but, the reason Therapy? have lasted so long is probably due to them changing and releasing so many quality albums over the years. I find it hard to pick out a song of theirs I don't like! Going Nowhere I probably the song I listen to the least.

    I don't care what other people say about their post-Troublegum-material, to me they are one of the most consistent bands ever and invent themselves new with every album, which is great. Even their weakest album (Shameless) is full of really great songs and their b-sides are better than most other band's a-sides.

    Having been scrobbling on last.fm for a looooong time. I now have empirical proof that this band is my favorite band. Super excited to hear new stuff.

    The remastered version of Nurse kicks ass! Finally we can enjoy it fully - what dark and twisted songs... I reckon Babyteeth and Pleasure Death deserve remastering, too. Both the albums are absolute undiscovered classics

    I like how the top tracks for the week are basically just the whole of Troublegum, plus Diane.

    Gotta agree that the new album is pretty great. I ended up only listening to it twice when I first got it, forgetting I even owned it, but I've since come to realize my mistake. Some of the best song writing they've ever done, imo.
