STA is now Ten Years Old

Alternative Press Talk To FWW's Cahir

"Three Irish shits trying to sell that back to Americans 15 years down the line; you know, I'm not really sure how that will go down." - Cahir O' Doherty

Formed in 2003 by Jetplane Landing guitarist Cahir O'Doherty, FWW were nearly wrapped up by disillusioned members after being consistently ignored by managers, labels and distributors.  "We cannot escape these songs" says O'Doherty, laughing.  "A few years back we were going to do one more tour and then pack it in.  It all went crazy and now we find ourselves off to America to try all over again with songs that are five years old.."  With new wind in their sails and an album to be recorded before the end of 2009, the adventure is on for FWW.  "We really don't know what will happen", O'Doherty admits.  "We come from the early 90s school of rock.  American alternative music from that time is our major influence.  Three Irish shits trying to sell that back to Americans 15 years down the line; you know, I'm not really sure how that will go down."
