"Juniper were an Irish rock band from County Kildare, most widely-known today as a precursor to Damien Rice and Bell X1. The band consisted of Rice (under the pseudonym Dodi Ma), Paul Noonan, Brian Crosby, Dominic Philips and David Geraghty. They released two extended plays, The J-Plane (1994) and Manna (1996). They split over creative differences soon after, with Rice going on to have a successful solo career and the remaining members forming Bell X1."

With my empty head
I should have stayed at home
And watched the weather"
