"Recording with Matt is the primary goal in our sights," Gaccione told me. "We've been hoarding our money from every show we play and every CD, shirt, and sticker we sell to save for recording the full-length.
"The three of us want to spend a good week or so there this summer and record the album of our lives," Gaccione continued. "And we know being in the presence of Matt Talbot would draw that out of us, so our fingers are crossed!"
As for the strangely-romantic band name, Gaccione explained that it's an homage to Michael Collins, an Irish military patriot in the 1920s and an integral part of creating the Irish Free State. "Sean has a deep Irish background and wanted to name the band after the place where Collins was assassinated, a location in Ireland called the Mouth Of Flowers."
While cognizant of the benefits the Internet can deliver in terms of promotion, Gaccione, in true DIY/ol-skool spirit, insists nothin' beats a good live show.
"The music itself needs to be the primary reason why people would come see your band," he said. "There really is nothing like playing songs with passion and true emotion in a small club or someone's basement where everyone is just digging your music and having a good time."
