Roper to rust – Roper 1999-2009 RIP

9 November 2009 by musiclimerick, 2 Comments


Limerick band Roper have called it a day. From their web site they stated, “10 years of a legacy is a difficult thing to look back on, but we’d rather do that with a positive mindframe than any other. To bring things to a graceful end now allows us to do that.” Despite describing Ireland as “a tough bastard of a place to be in any sort of a band thats not considered mainstream” the band won the Miller Strat Band of the Year competition in 2005, gigged continually and built up a loyal following over the years culminating in the release of their LP Gallows Hill. Check out Regardless We Rust below. A farewell gig is not planned at time of writing.
