Six of the best: Rock critic John Meagher picks the top Irish bands to look out for in 2008
JUNO FALLS They have just signed a worldwide deal with V2 Records and their fine EP Atom Bomb is out now.
THE KYBOSH Straight-up indie guitar rock -- a band with old heads on young shoulders (below).
CAP PAS CAP These electro-rockers are perhaps the finest unsigned Irish band on the live circuit.
DRY COUNTRY An uncommercial sound, but their music is cinematic in scope.
THE BETAMAX FORMAT They have already displayed an ability to write fantastic tunes brimming with energy. n
