Took a notion today and dug this beauty out! What a brilliant album! Always loved when the lads came into the Den circa 1989! ❤️ And they are still making brilliant music! @the4ofus https://t.co/tUVTnzgrq6 the4ofus photo

We hope you enjoy this video. The setting is a beautiful converted church in the middle of Cork City, Live At St. Luke's. In this and many other unique venues around Europe, there comes a point in our show when two slightly pasty, red-haired Irish guys attempt to do the unthinkable: summon up the funk. Actually, it’s Declan who attempts it - I try and stay out of his way.

If there was a party going on in the Murphy family household, we all gravitated to his record collection. By his mid-teens, he had amassed a treasure trove of music that never failed to get people on whatever constituted a dance floor. James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Public Enemy, Prince ... the list goes on.

As a result, when we started writing songs, Declan was the scientist, experimenting with riffs and effects to make our music that little bit groovier, even though he was usually stuck behind an unassuming acoustic guitar.

It's no accident that our very first album, Songs For The Tempted, opens with a wah-wah guitar solo. Our second album, Man Alive, declares itself the very same way, and this is the song it introduces: Sensual Thing.

For any guitar players out there who want to embrace their funky side, we have also provided a free chord chart for the song! All comments appreciated.

Cheers,
Brendan and Declan ❤️
