SXSW 2013 Interview: Cathal Cully, Claire Miskimmin and Philip Quinn of Girls Names

One of the best ‘discoveries’ of mine from SXSW 2013 was guitar band Girls Names from their spiffy appearance at the [email protected] showcase on Monday night. I put ‘discoveries’ in quotes, because I really should have heard of them prior to this trip to Austin. No matter though; I’m going to keep a close eye on this Belfast band.

I didn’t think I would be able to find them, as their American PR told me to try and find them at one of their gigs. But I took my chances at showing up at the Music from Ireland breakfast on Friday morning at Irish pub B.D. Riley’s, convinced that I would find at least one hungry Irish band partaking in the free brekky, keen on an interview. After Cathal, Claire and Philip of Girls Names had their breakfast, they kindly answered some questions for me about the lack of punctuation in their name, about their releases to date and much more. I should also mention that we were on the same flight from Austin to Houston Sunday morning, and it was nice I got to see them again and wish them safe travels back to Belfast!
