In this video created by GAF TV, Olaf Tyaransen and Julian Gough trip around Galway, visiting places influential to a certain generation of Irish artists and musicians; including the dole office, The Druid and O'Connor's Warwick Hotel.
Julian Gough writes serious novels disguised as funny novels. He has been known to win prizes and steal pigs. He was born in London, raised in Tipperary, educated in Galway, and lives in Berlin. You may know his soul via his blog. He once saved the publishing industry.
Based on Julian Gough's short story, and the first ever short story published by the Financial Times, The Great Goat Bubble is being premiered at the 2012 Galway Arts Festival. Directed by Mikel Murfi with Wil Johnson and Tadhg Murphy, this play promises to be a delight. Described as a tight, smart comedy of whirlwind economic triumph and catastrophe. Set in 1986 as a sleepy Ireland dreams of a modern and exciting future, any resemblance to recent events is entirely in your head.
Olaf Tyaransen is an Irish author and journalist, and is a contributing editor with Dublin's Hot Press magazine and the Evening Herald. His journalism has appeared in Rolling Stone, Mojo, Penthouse, the Sunday Independent, and other publications.
