The insanely catchy, brash and swaggering Cashier No. 9 have made sporadic appearances in the past, but having expanded into a blistering live act that includes life-long friends James Smith on guitar, Stuart Magowan on bass, Philip Duffy on drums and Ronan Quinn on keys/guitar, it’s now emphatically their turn. Revealing a clutch of songs that have been disgorging from Danny’s head into his laptop over the past year and a half they have already won fans as diverse as Steve Lamacq, Janice Long, David Holmes, John Kennedy, Rob Da Bank, and Jon Hillcock, all of whom are playing the debut single ’42 West Avenue’ (scheduled for digital and limited vinyl release on October 27th 2008 through No Dancing records). These key taste-makers are providing their listeners the opportunity to discern the band’s plethora of diverse influences that range from Captain Beefheart to T.Rex and Primal Scream to The Bees, by way of Syd Barrett, Paul Simon and Pavement. “I don’t want to pin myself down to one sound,” Danny modestly reckons. 

In an age of stagnant sound-alike bands where style seems to have all but usurped substance, Cashier No.9 are an alternative pop band ready to lead the counter revolution. 

“Staggering, nonchalant talent” – BBC NI Across the line
