Electric Circus















Dave Fanning

Irish television and radio legend, Dave Fanning began his career in the 1970s as editor of Ireland's only rock magazine 'Scene' and deejay Dublin's pirate radio networks. When Ireland's first official national pop radio station (RTÉ 2FM) was launched in the Summer of '79. Dave took the midnight shift five days a week, championing Irish rock bands including U2 and by the early '80's becoming Ireland's answer to John Peel.

Over the last couple of decades Dave has fronted over twenty television programmes for Ireland's national television station RTÉ. In Britain, he helped launch Virgin Radio over two years with his weekend show, presented live music shows on Channel 4, consulted for ITV's 'South Bank Show' and presented many documentaries on music, including a BBC Radio 4 profile on Bono.


Rasher, aka Mark Kavanagh was born in 1977 in the seaside town of Bray, Co. Wicklow, where he attended St Killian's School and St Thomas VEC. After attracting interest with several self-mounted shows, he held a successful one -man show in Dublin, which led to newspaper profiles and an appearance on the Late Late Show. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most interesting painters of his generation. The artist still lives and works in Wicklow town, Co Wicklow.
