Many years ago bands of such great stature as Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, The Beatles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience sent music into interstellar overdrive. For many it was too fast to follow but for an illuminated few. Following in the footsteps of Giants has never been easy but how many Think to try!

Working underground has its advantages as Think found out collaborating with Studio Loop Records Producer Gareth Desmond. Think have realised their initial dream of recording their debut Album ‘Gimme That Sound’, to be released 14th march 2003.
Since the release of Thinks first single ‘Man Alive’ in October 2002 the band have received rave reviews throughout the press with the likes of Niall Stokes from Hotpress billing them as one of the bands to watch in 2003.

‘Hey Everybody’ Thinks new single is out on the 28th of February and has already got them on Tom Dunnes show ‘PetSounds’ as the Wittness rising band of the week.
Currently running a cinema advertising campaign in the UGC cinemas Thinks profile is going from strength to strength. With RMG doing the distribution for the album the record will be available in record stores nationwide.

If you are looking for a band to entertain you listen to the words of Nick Kelly jounalist for Billboard and the London Times “ This band is more charismatic then Nirvana!”

  THINK - Biography

Starting off with a humble groove and a box of tricks, a young songwriter named Terry McGuinness imagined that he was much like many of his childhood heroes. Fuelled by a musical overload of Zeppelin, Morrison, The Stones, Hendrix, Lennon & McCartney, and the alien undertones of Bolan and Ziggy, McGuinness' own alter ego Think was ignited. This very ethos will give you an insight into why Think is an entity that lives outside the confines that conventional thinking creates.

A chance encounter with Gareth Desmond, a Dublin-based producer with Studio Loop Records (which Think would later sign to) lead to the moulding of Think's debut album 'Gimme That Sound' in the depths of their underground studio. McGuinness' vision for Think was given further scope when he met with Jerry Fish (former vocalist with An Emotional Fish) - this spawned Think's debut single 'Man Alive'.

"Working with Gareth was great, as he always had many different way of doing things and a fresh perspective. He'd hear something in a song and focus on that - a lot of the time what he found was a new focal point to the tune. This wasn't a compromise, this was an evolution."

The addition of Paul Brennan (drums) and Mucker (bass) saw Think grow into a cohesive three-piece band in more recent times. The mutation from a solo artist into a trio has been an easy transition for McGuinness, who believes that his comrades will further the quest that Think has embarked upon.

"We're all on a journey, and it's cool to listen to music when you're travelling! What's great about music is when you get a record, you buy into the world of that band, and for a while you step into the universe of that performer - let's just hope that ours has something that connects with people.

"In music the rules are - there are no rules - the amount of options are infinite. My own loose set of rules are; no compromising, always give 100%, and take bits and pieces from all over the place, stick on the blender and reduce, distil and purify."

The core of each Think song encompasses that singular personal touch, yet there is a worldliness rooted in each that you'll rarely hear coming from the mind of just one. Like any music that's made today, Think's songs have their ghosts, but it's the way McGuinness and the band manage to contort those influences that has earned them respect from a number of influential figures.

"It's unavoidable that the music that you grow up with will influence the songs that you write, but as Keith Richards once slurred 'we no longer transmit, we only receive'. I like listening to bands that have had the same musical diet, and seeing the different conclusions that they've come up with."
