The Lechers is my current band here in Dublin.
When I first moved here, I met up with some Polish musicians that took me in and let me jam with them, and it was really great fun. But I missed having a band. So, I took a chance and posted on a random search board online and got a reply from this guy, JP, that would later prove to be the catalyst for this new band. (JP also plays drums with the legendary Belfast band THE OUTCASTS). After some back and forth we got together and it clicked straight away. I played him some of my songs, and he liked the name The Lechers, so we kept that as a band name. JP then brought on his pal Caff, who also fronts Dublin band IMMACULATE DECEPTION, to play bass, and it just took off from there. Caff is a killer guitar player, so unleashing him on bass has been a lot of fun.
We've been playing a lot shows here in Dublin, and the response has been really great. I was really lucky to hook up with these guys. They're both killer players, and the chemistry just works.
JP and Caff also have a FaceBook page for us. So, you know, like us or whatever...
I have been off of all social media for a long time with no intention of going back, hence this website. JP and Caff run the FB site, so please don't try to PM me there, I won't see it. If you want to contact me, you can always do so here.
