The Herbaliser to play first Dublin show in 12 years


The downtempo jazzy trip-hop 90s Ninja Tune duo The Herbaliser are to play their first Dublin show since 2007 on 11th May at the Button Factory.

Formed in London during the early 1990s, the band’s core members Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba were inspired by soul, funk and in particular the then current hip hop emerging from America. Unfortunately, at that time, they didn’t know any rappers. They made up for this missing element by adopting an extra ingredient to fill the absence; a widescreen cinematic feel born of vivid imagination. The spy thrillers, westerns and detective shows of the duo’s 1970s youth would be plundered for inspiration and translated to vinyl by what would soon become their trademark, an explosive and extensive live band. But this template was set long before the convening of that large ensemble.

Tickets are on sale tomorrow priced at €22.50 plus fees at 9am.
