Record Of The Week - Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer were from Belfast, Northern Ireland. The band was made up of musicians Shaun Robinson and Rocky O'Reilly.
The group's self-titled debut album was released in the UK in March 2007 after previous releases in America, Australia and Japan. The album includes a cover of 'Don't Call Me' by Belfast songwriter Tom McShane.
Their first single from the album, a double A-side 7" featuring tracks "Breakfast In NYC", "Truth Or Dare" and B-side "Getting By", was released in April 2006. Watch the video for "Breakfast in NYC" below:
