The Cairo Gang was a group of British intelligence agents who were sent to Dublin during the Irish War of Independence to conduct intelligence operations against prominent members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) – according to Irish intelligence with the intention of assassinating them.
Short answer: The Cairo Gang cuts across musical movements of several years' span to create music sounding distinctly out of time. Warning" is an early highlight and as good a mission statement as any, layering plucked acoustic chords and breathless woodwinds over undulating bass and shaker percussion. Tracks like "Me and You" occasionally bring a aftertaste of guilt with the rush of nostalgia- if you've got a Nick Drake album, you've heard these sounds before. While gentle acoustic numbers dominate, "Shiloutte" and "Funnel Cloud" are strong reminders of Sonic Youth's jangle, and the album on the whole reflects the kind of grab-bag aesthetic of a Bee Thousand.

The Cairo Gang is a musical declaration uniting the romanticists with the doomsayers for a round of high fives and hand shakes. The ballad Mother Earth is acoustically organic, delivering the listener an early Neil Young feel with bewitching flutes and bongos. Over the course of recent years, The Cairo Gang has been a lingering passion for Emmett Kelly, a stimulated singer/songwriter with an impressive list of musicians in his rolodex.
