    The amount of really good quality music that's come out of Ireland is pretty amazing when you think about it.

    Thaw Aye like, so it is.

    Relish are another band from Downpatrick that are surprisingly still going. Not my kind of thing really but they seem popular enough.

    A bit of early '80s electro pop from Auto da Fe:



    (produced by Phil Lynott)

    These were the successors to the Woods Band, early '70s folk-rockers.

    More Lizzy, Philo had it down to a formula by this time. Given his own (later) record of alleged domestic violence, some of the lyrics make for uncomfortable listening. Some of the other lyrics are . . . interesting. "Where the mountains of Mourne come down to the sea" is a direct quote from Percy French, author of "Slattery's Mounted Foot" and various other songs from the days when people used to gather round the piano.

    I had a pretty good LP by some sorta noise/shoegaze merchants, female vocals, plenty of feedback. Cover was greenish with a crudely stictched wound iirc. That was great. Can't remember who it was now....

    Compulsion were ok too.

    I agree about Lizzy, but RG and the Undertones should be much further up. And yeah, U2 do have to be in there - I may not rate them now, but there was a time when they did mean a lot to me.
