Al features in Culturepool book

Culturepool played a big part in The Trestles. They put us on at the Working Class Music Festival in 2009 and our last major gig in Liverpool was to headline their 5th birthday bash at ‘Above the Beaten Track’ last August. A book has been published to celebrate their achievements and Al O’Hare is featured with a double page spread talking about his feelings for Culturepool.

Have a look here on pages 44-45.
