Cactus World News: Frank Kearns talks about new album ‘Found’...

Cactus World News emerged in 1984 as the Irish band most likely to follow U2 on the road to international success. They had all the right connections but more importantly, had the songs and the sound that made them ideal candidates for graduating to the major leagues. Debut single ‘The Bridge’ was an impressive opening shot – stirring, anthemic guitar rock and debut album ‘Urban Beaches’ served only to cement the impression that CWN were a band ready to make a big leap forward. Released on MCA Records, the album sold well, but a change in label personnel led to a familiar story – the band didn’t find favour with the new regime and follow up album ‘No Shelter’ sat gathering dust before being released many years after it was recorded. Now, some 25 years after their last release, the band have compiled a collection of rare and unreleased tracks, another chapter to the CWN story that is sure to satisfy their loyal fan base. Guitarist Frank Kearns took the time to talk to us about the band, their history and the upcoming release of ‘Found’ following a pledgemusic campaign.
