2007-10-22 - News
The nimble guitar part that runs behind the chorus of ‘All I Want Is For You To Be Happy’ reminds me of Pulp’s classic ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’. The Aftermath may still have some distance to go to attain the pithy, effortless brilliance of Cocker and co., but let’s not be negative: the UK-based, Longford-bred group have delivered a solid slice of direct guitar pop, and the echoey treatment of the vocals is a nice sonic touch.

Hard-working indie rockers The Aftermath continue their full-on Irish tour this summer with a special Whelan’s gig, which many very well feature Liv Tyler in the audience.
2007-06-06 - News
They might be one of the most hard-working bands in Ireland at the moment, but sadly that doesn’t necessarily translate to being great on record. The Longford natives are competent songwriters of cheery pop gems with just a hint of dark undertones about them (though they’re nothing like the death metal band I’d once anticipated from their name!). Unfortunately, it’s spoiled by Johnny Cronin’s vocals, which to me come across like an overzealous attempt to take off Edwyn Collins. But hey, ‘distinctive’ vocals never stopped Clap Your Hands Say Yeah…
2006-10-11 - REVIEW
The Cronin Brothers have come a long way with their group The Aftermath since leaving Longford to make their fortune. With friends like the Kaiser Chiefs and fans like Chris Moyles, they’re on the brink of making it big.
2006-09-01 - Interview
Not many bands from Longford make their way into Chris Moyles’ affections, yet The Aftermath are proving adept at making friends in high places. It’s easy to see why. ‘One Is Fun’ is very now, a quirky guitar pop tune with a spring in its step. Of course the problem with being very now is that you soon become very yesterday, so let’s hope The Aftermath have got a good exit strategy worked out. For now though, good work.
