  • Please keep it on topic. No more unfounded allegations about members of the band.




  • Could well be true but idk its porb a bit unfair to be calling for reunions ..well aware of this bands history but they left an indelible mark on the Irish music landscape.

    No more re-animating eight year old threads, that had the last previous post six years ago?

    Feck. I think that boy must be well and truly whipped by now... Great band in their day. Powerful live.

    I agree but there is a definite lack of anything new here ..it all seems to be about auld bands making feeble comebacks and the sheep flocking along to hear it!




  • Can any Whipping Boy experts help me to find a song I heard by them on the radio once about 20 years ago. The song started with the lyrics: "When we were kids we used to go over the back wall into old Johnny's scrapyard".

    I know it sounds like a line out of "When We Were Young", but it was a completely different song. It's definitely not on Heartworm, which I know like the back of my hand, but I've never heard any of their other stuff.

    It was a great song and I'd love to hear it again.

  • That's "When We Were Young (Philo Version)". It's a poem by Phil Lynott set to the same music. It's a b-side on one of the Heartworm singles.

    :cool:

    Listened to the album start to finish on road trip last Sunday. Absolutely amazing. Never tire of it. Need to get new CD though. Starting to skip. Broke my heart.




  • Brilliant album. People will start comparing them to the Fontaines :p

    I actually thought Murder Capital could have being worthy successors.Their front man has that madman look in his eyes.
    Someone asked Paul Page on Twitter were was Fergal these times and he has no idea so chances of a reunion gig slim to zero.:(

    I like your taste, Urban. I think the Murder Capital debut is remarkable. I absolutely adore it. But I was trying to get my mates to listen to it. And all I got back was a "its alright". I couldn't understand it.
    He's a great frontman. I saw them along with Fontaines at some charity thing some months ago. Murder capital played about 4 songs I think.And Fontaines played about 7/8 tunes. They were good. But I'd take Murder Capital all day long.
    Your man does look like some soldier dude that could just lose his head at any moment. I'll never forget the tune Feeling Fades in the Olympia that night.

    Back on the Whipping Boy topic - would be lovely to see Fergal taking to the stage in a helmet again. I saw them when I was in college. Didn't realise at the time that I was witnessing something special.




  • They'd want to start coming up with their own live tv studio ideas :p Murder Capital that is.... it's like a copy of WB LLS appearance!

    Re WB Must have being difficult to perform in front of a crowd of stiffs:pac:
    Not a great choice of song by MC on that occasion ..I hope they are working on second hard hitting album.

    Some recent uploads of WB footage to youtube.







  • Well no point harping on great band under appreaciated highy appreciated now that the way it goes

    :

    I remember the unsold blue vinyl copies in Virgin and HMV back in 1995. I bought one, a mate bought one and the remaining eight or so seemed to stay there for ages. That happened with a lot of new LPs then.

    Hopefully the album will get a 2CD reissue with all the B-Sides and radio edits. Plus maybe some live stuff.




  • I picked up Heartworm a few months back, brand new CD on ebay from a UK shop.
