‘had a girl, she asked me to trim back my face hair. but nobody ever tells me to shave, so I dumped her’ – Johann Beardraven (The Beards)

(I couldn’t get his quote, so I picked a phrase from one of their songs)


he is from Ballaghaderreen, but he came to Dublin for a couple of days and texted me so I could take his picture. when we met, he gave me a paper with his quote: ‘you ask why I grow a beard… the answer might seem weird. yet this public hair I feel I must share, ‘cos soon it might be bare’
