Acrojunk take the best, leave the rest and develop a likeable combination of old and new styles" – Hotpress. The EP received much airplay on radio stations around the country, a selection of which are Phantom FM, Beat 102-103, WLRFM, RedFM, FM104, Flirt FM, Galway Bay FM and Live 95. The band are currently recording their debut album, which is due for release in February 2008. The five members of Acrojunk are a reflection of some of the more positive aspects of modern Ireland. The newest member is Neal Byrne, himself a fine singer/songwriter and former Olympic rower, who represented Ireland at the Sydney 2000 games (that was before he was bitten by the musical bug). Guitarist Dave Manser was formerly a member of the national 2002 O2 New Band Competition winning The Real, who on the back of a top 20 single scored two successive shows at the UK’s Reading Festival.
During the day drummer Trevor Nolan likes to think he’s a photographer, while bassist Ben Clooney prefers the simple things in life (such as catching fish). Meanwhile, frontman Rob O'Connoris familiar to many as the voice of the Irish Beats radio show on Ireland's Beat 102-103. Acrojunk - imagine a musical cage wrestling match between The Kinks, Johnny Cash, Joy Division, Dinosaur Jr. Squeeze, Soundgarden and The Beatles and you're halfway there.
