Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer
Gavin Friday was born in Dublin in October 1959. He survived
a Christian Brothers education to become a singer, composer
and painter. He was the founder member of the legendary avant-garde
punk group, The Virgin Prunes. Since 1985 he has composed
and performed with his musical partner, Maurice Seezer, who
was born in Dublin in September 1960. Maurice studied piano,
cello and harmony at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and
didn't like punk. He went to Trinity College Dublin to study
the Bible, played piano in bars and conducted the College
Singers until he met Gavin through a mutual friend.
Friday-Seezer albums include Each Man Kills the Thing
He Loves, Adam 'n' Eve, and Shag Tobacco. Film Scores
include In the Name of the Father, The Boxer, Disco Pigs
and In America. Stage shows include the Kurt Weill
extravaganza, Ich Liebe Dich.
