If you want to get into it, you got to get out of it. (Hawkwind 1982)
I was at this as a teenager and I've forgotten half the line up.
Only have a conversation last night with a pal about how I wish I had seen the Pogues live. Jaysus I'm getting old.
certainly isnt related
he was brutal that day , didnt he fire phillo from his shite band and lived of it ever since :)
whats he doing
15 minutes of rory gallagher , seems mental with the gift of hindsight
I wish there was more footage of the shows available. I remember Paul Brady giving an absolute belter of a performance of Hard Station but haven't been able to find any recording of it.
I just remember he seemed to be on The Late Late Show every week, harping on about Phil Lynott
Why were the likes of the Blades, Mary Black or Feargal Sharkey not on the bill that day? They were all high profile Irish acts back then.
The Blades turned it down, whatever about the rest. I remember Paul Cleary giving a reason why they didn't want to play but forget what it was precisely.
Mary Black performed on Self Aid with Scullion
The Blades had broken up at that stage
Feargal Sharkey had not yet fully established himself as a solo artist (self aid was before A Good Heart etc.)
I always liked Brush, though in moderate enough doses was possibly advisable. I remember one of the stories involved Phil accompanying him on his honeymoon. They were definitely close anyway.
Eh no, A Good Heart made the top of the charts about 6 months before Self Aid. Anyway Sharkey was already well known at that stage from his Undertones days.
ha ha I was thinking of Live Aid in 85, which Sharkey had nothing to do with as we all know
