My Bloody Valentine
And speaking of jazz:
Does anyone remember RTE showing big band music on friday nights, back in the '70s?
Great bunch of lads
"I smell wee! This one smells of wee!"
Best Irish band?
I remember as a kid going to a pub in mullingar because Brendan Shine drank there or maybe Joe Dolan. It turned into the longest red lemonade ever. The adults got hammered and we went on to Castlebar and my Dad and Aunt won a dancing competition in another pub without even knowing it was taking place.
Btw... Mullingar would be Joe Dolan country. Brendan Shine is a Roscommon man.
Nobody's mentioned Therapy? yet, so here they are.
An early tune so there's room left for later material.
Also, I wonder if anyone else likes God is an Astronaut?
I always thought they were a bit like U2 but without Bono singing (or anyone singing)
So pretty good, really.
Something at random...
I might be back with more later, but for now three is enough.
So I want to offer the psychedelic instrumental space rock of Yurt for consideration...
Their most recent album, in its entirety, on Bandcamp (though if you play it embedded here you'll probably just get one track, hopefully track 6)
and this one is on the black album (the first one)
and this one
My poor cousin Steve, who worked for the local paper before he died, met the Gallagher brothers when they made the diasporic pilgrimage to their ancestral Mayo village. A great pair of lads they were too, apparently.
Something Happens - another group who don't get remembered as often they should be.
Do the Waterboys count as Irish? With Mike Scott, the clue is in the name - but they did have some Irish members over the years, didn't they?
and so i watch you from afar
My favourite Irish band (of all time) is probably The Dubliners
My favourite (modern) Irish band, The Rubberbandits. Best live band I have seen in a long time (apart from Alabama 3)
Good shout on the Jinx Lennon!
20% of Girls Aloud is better than all of most bands.
I forgot about captain moonlight. He used to go out with my best friends sister. Sound lad.
Kevin Shields little brother Jimi was in Rollerskate Skinny
Also I think Big Tom has an incredible voice.
Stiff Little Fingers, Barbed Wire Love:
I like that....hadnt heard of them...will check more.
A House and Radiators seem to be influential, according to the Irish Times...havent heard of them either The Irish Times Top 40 Irish Albums
Calibre deserves a salute: one of the most prolific, consistent and respected producers in DnB.
Happy St Patricks Day
