In the case of Sisters it seems that the ties that bind can also result in some fantastic new music. A trio from Limerick, the group formed just over a year ago and have a natty line in torn 'n' tattered grunge riffs.

The new issue of Clash magazine is out right now. It's always on the money with breakthrough acts worth listening to. So, go and see.
