Best Irish bands....

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.

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.

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.
