Public Service Broadcast: Our Krypton Son
From Derry in Northern Ireland Our Krypton Son is the alter ego of Chris McConaghy. Having played in various bands in the past including psychedelic pop outfit Red Organ Serpent Sound, Chris decided to unleash his own brand of eclectic pop in 2007. Since then Our Krypton Son has taken the form of a band, allowing Chris to fully explore the depths of song writing. With the debut record due for release in September, titled simply 'Our Krypton Son' draws comparisons with Elvis Costello, Richard Hawley, Brian Wilson and Nick Drake.
We caught up with Chris and asked him a few questions...
Hello. My name's Christopher. I play the guitar and piano. And sing. I write
songs under the pseudonym 'Our Krypton Son'. I also have an 'Our Krypton Son'
tribute band on the side to make a few bob so my children can eat.
