, No Monster Club – Posthumous Hits: a 46-track cassette compilation

Bobby Aherne’s No Monster Club band project has been lo-fi rocking in the free world since 2009 and Bobby felt the time was right to compile a collection of bits and bobs, songs and things onto a cassette. Perhaps in an effort to fill up a 90-minute tape, the resulting album Posthumous Hits has 46 tracks in total, recorded between 2009 and 2012.

The blurb story goes that Bobby Aherne “tragically passed away earlier this year, aged 24 and Posthumous Hits was unearthed after his death. The album has been lovingly mastered by Mark Chester (Grand Pocket Orchestra/Ginnels) and prepared for release by his bandmates, friends and family.” Either way, it’s the followup to this year’s impressive Dublin album. Get Posthumous Hits at Big Cartel for €7.

Here are two songs from it, one with Bobby’s new best friend in video form:
