T.P.M. are brothers Charles and Andrew Hendy. A Hip-hop duo hailing from Dundalk, (which is a border town in Ireland nicknamed ‘El Paso’) showing the world what life is like on social welfare payments in their town by creating videos and playing live shows.
“TPM seep confidence with a constant flow of likeable stage banter and a catalogue of energising anti-establishment anthems. Naturally at ease commanding the crowd, the rapid-fire interplay between the two brothers was spotless and constantly delivered with a grin. Whilst their lyrical output often leans into being tongue-in-cheek, the duo’s chants about exploitative governments and state systems that are built to keep the average person down feel urgent in 2019.” – Kelly O Doherty (Nialler 9)
“TPM were among the standouts of Saturday, with two incendiary sets that saw the hip hop duo taking their live show to raucous new heights. Whether proclaiming their love for curry sauce or dissing the national broadcaster, TPM’s anthems for the “all the boys on the FÁS course” once again proved to be as liberating as they’re gas.” – Lucy O’ Toole (Hot Press)
