Murry is a class apart: John Murry. Black Box, Belfast

Heroin chic and tortured artists is all a bit last century, but demon-laden guitarist John Murry sneaked under the radar on Saturday to the Out to Lunch Festival.

Murry and his cohorts performed his debut solo album, The Graceless Age, conjuring a sound that was somewhere between classic Dylan and In Utero-era Nirvana.

Doom and gloom were the bywords for a show that was part performance, part catharsis.
