Lizzy's album of '76, Johnny the Fox:
Ooh yes, love a bit of A House.
Their big hit was ‘Endless Art’
Their other big hit was ‘Take It Easy On Me’:
I am very fond of the 1990 album I Want Too Much
DaveCinzano and they released 'more endless art' to include women artists.
House of Pain...............irish roots
I quite like these recent guys from dublin
And as I type, they are all lying face down in a gutter somewhere in the south end of Boston.
The amount of really good quality music that's come out of Ireland is pretty amazing when you think about it.
Theres a bit of reggae/dub out of Ireland...Irish Moss Records?....Cian Finn is probably the best out of Ireland Ive heard
Everlast is still doing plenty
Whereas The Number Twos are just shit
In the gutter where everyone knows your name.
Relish are another band from Downpatrick that are surprisingly still going. Not my kind of thing really but they seem popular enough.
I'm heavily into Woven Skull - heavy psychedelic folk stuff.
Some early Damien Rice
I used to like Planxty in their day.
He's from Long Island not Southie
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.
Anyone remember Mama's Boys? Also-rans maybe, but they had their moments:
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.
Pierce Brosnan - very versatile
FAO Athos -
A bit of Rory Gallagher press and imagery here at Brand New Retro:
Jim Fitzpatrick Cover Art & Rory Gallagher in Music Scene 1974
Ta. "... a capacious Guinness drinker..."
1 Thin Lizzy 2 U2 3 Horslips 4 Rory Gallagher 5 The Pogues 6 Van the Man 7 Undertones 8 SLF 9 That Petrol Emotion 10 Hothouse Flowers.
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.
Saw Lizzy live 16 times Rory on three occasions I'm off to Ballyshannon next month can't wait. Its all about opinions I've got quality memories of all the ten acts I mentioned.
I should really have included the Cranberries too.
I figured it out a couple of weeks ago when I saw a 7" in a used record store.
They've stood up well.
