Take Jedward as a consolation, on the condition that you keep them.

Well, I have no idea who they are, but I don't mind seeing Riverdance, or LOTD again when they come, though they are a bit expensive.

Aye. It's like in the 80s and how the ANC tried to bully Paul Simon when he was trying to record Graceland. The important thing is not that the ANC viewed Simon's breaking of the boycott as incredibly damaging to their movement, but that Paul Simon managed to record a critically acclaimed album which made a lot of money, while damaging future prospects for the people who were opressed.

We'll just take their word on this, then? Seems like Dervish might be taking a leaf from Paul Simon's book.

Well I didn't extensively research the alleged abuse myself, but I presume that whoever wrote the article about them in the Irish Times, and in today's Sindo and in several other places did. Perhaps naive, but I don't see anywhere else online except for this thread that suggests we are all having the wool pulled over our eyes by a bunch of self promoting traditional music marketeers.

From the OP article:

Quote:
Among those who wrote on the band’s website was Dr Raymond Deane, the founder of the boycott campaign, who warned the band that it would have “lost all credibility” if it had played in Israel.
This is the wanker who had his **** "music" on the leaving cert music course:

A quick glance over their Facebook page and the only negative comments seem to be directed specifically at their announcement that they're pulling out. Unless they deleted the original comments. Any other comments are generally positive. Mention of Israel and the status 'likes' and 'comments' increase by some 300% on other non-Israeli related updates.

Regardless of whether this is true or not (like I say, it was only a cursory glance) it's always good to be cynical. Especially when it comes to the type of journalism that the IT regularly pedal.
