Following the amazing success of Irregular’s first outing, the 18th June will see the second instalment of Canongate and Limbo’s literary club night at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms.

About the artists:

Richard Milward’s first novel, Apples, was published in 2007 by Faber&Faber, gaining accolades from such folk as Irvine Welsh and Lauren Laverne. His second, Ten Storey Love Song, is a tale of sex, death and sweets in a North East high-rise, and was published earlier this year. He graduated last year from Central St Martins in London with a Fine Art degree, and enjoys reading with something unusual on his head. He currently lives in Middlesbrough.

Trevor Byrne was born in 1981 and brought up in Clondalkin in south Dublin. He attended Trinity College and Glamorgan University where he is currently a tutor of creative writing. His first novel, Ghosts & Lightning, was published by Canongate Books in June 2009.

Salena Godden has been published in a myriad of both mainstream and art house literary magazines and anthologies. Salena Godden is the lyricist and lead singer of underground eclectic ska-break band SaltPeter. SaltPeter’s latest album 'Hunger’s The Best Sauce' featured in The Critical List in The Independent On Sunday as one of the most outstanding albums of 2007. Salena has also collaborated with the likes of Alabama 3, Coldcut, Beardyman and Simple Kid to name but a few.

Modernaire are noble-minded Oscar Wildstyle, Cruella De Mill and Chesty La Rue, 3 altogether very different beings playing cautionary tales of bloody revenge, lovelorn minotaurs, dancing vampires and flamboyant adventures. Having already toured with The Ting Tings and supported a host of high end acts including The Whip, Daggers and Friendly Fires, Modernaire's interpretation of decadent, sexy and melancholic creates truly danceable synth led experimental pop and electronics that Kate Bush and The Knife would be getting down to. http://www.myspace.com/modernairetheband

Irregular will take place at the Voodoo Rooms on Thursday 18th June 2009. Tickets are £5 OTD, which includes a free book at the end of the night and some truly fantastic drinks deals.
