Harry Guerin – RTE – April ’10

It’s testament to Long’s gifts as a songwriter that even though her most famous five minutes, ‘Happy Thoughts’ (used on the TV ad with the kid coming home in the rain), feature on ‘Caterpillar Sarabande’, the album is so strong that it could get by just as nicely without them.

Here you find someone working to create their own kind of hush – sometimes sweet, sometimes sad, sometimes a little spooky – and giving you lots of reasons to have a duvet day.

The pace is relaxed but it’s nicely offset by the great tag-team groove of cello and drums on ‘Tactless Questions’ and ‘Freakscene’ and the pounding ‘Bad Move’ – a track that bodes well for future rockouts.

Happy Thought Tour 2009

Tour Thanks 2009

Thank you to everyone who came out to support us on the ‘Happy Thoughts’ tour last April.

A brief but beautiful tour of the southern counties – we enjoyed a different experience each night, culminating in a superb “Happy Thoughts” audience chorus in The Village, Wexford St. Thank you to everyone who turned up, tuned in and sang out.

We have some great memories from the road, the people we met and laughs we shared. Like the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on TodayFM, for example – see here… If you were at one of the gigs and have some memories you would like to share, we would love to hear from you at audience@vyviennelong.com – send them in please and we will post up a selection.

Looking forward to hearing from you – check back for progress!
