Now you're talking. Best Irish band ever. Stephen Ryan is working on a new album I hear. Great news.

Galway band "The Fuze" from 1981 with It's a Sunday Mornin'



And Tuam reggae band "Too Much For The Whiteman" with their 1988 Top 30 hit "Put Your Mind At Ease"




The sound quality on these is not great but both these bands were absolutely brilliant live! Believe me

Good to hear 'Needle in the Groove' again after all these years

Also had the CD single of their version of Higher Ground too.




Great call on the Cry Before Dawn 'Last of the Sun'. They had a few belting tracks out in the 80s.

Somebody earlier posted a Stepaside song. The late Paul Ashford had a brilliant 80s solo song called "One in Every Town" and its up on youtube, but the quality is crackily and not good, so I wont post the link. Its a track to this day that was never released digitally, unfortunately.


Anyhow here's a great track from 1989 from The Fat Lady Sings - Arclight.



Frontman Nick Kelly went on to become a commercial (the Guiness adverts with Fassbender) and film director.

Early 80s this.

Ringsend (or Raytown) band, The Blades (Paul & Lar Cleary and Pat Larkin). Lar sadly died earlier this year. Coincidentally I bumped into his brother Paul in a pub in Templeogue a few weeks back!

AAAAnyway, The Blades - Ghost of a Chance (1981)

I could post so many Something Happens songs like Beach, Burn Clear or anything from Been There, Seen That, Done That.



There's an incredibly cringe like video of my fav Something Happens from 1989 at the "National Entertainment Awards" but the sound quality is crap. Worth looking at to see the out of touch public service like production alone that only Ireland could do for music awards.

Something Happens - Forget Georgia (1988).

I always wondered why that YouTube uploader used the Bedlam A GoGo sleeve for Forget Georgia.

Love One In Every Town. Have the 7". Gerry Ryan used play it on his brilliant 10 - 12pm show. Used listen in bed.

Loads of Irish stuff is MIA on CD. The likes of the Tom Dunne's compilations only scratch the surface. This is one of the earliest Irish compilations I can remember coming out on CD - 1992 - which was very late considering. https://www.discogs.com/Various-Iris...elease/6477966
To be fair, it's probably the best one and gets serious kudos for including the fair superior single version of Love Don't Work This Way.

They really were a great band and should have done way better. I still have one of their so called 'red tapes' (which were grey). Shockin bad sound quality though.


This was a great song.

Paul came in for a radio interview in the late 2000's. He was amazed (and thrilled!) that we had a perfect single version of One in Every Town as it was never released digitally as he hadn't got around to it. And sadly he died not long after.


Surprised this song wasn't posted.

A very young Darren Wharton on Piano. Ronan Dooney plays the piccolo trumpet (went on to do same on The Commitments soundtrack).

I don't believe this charted in Ireland or the UK which must be one of the music mysteries of Irish Music in the 80s. Pub Quiz - Where is the pub @ 1.39.


1982 Phil Lynott - Oldtown

Technically.....its Mark Knopfler.


I always associate it with Ireland though as its so celtic. The uilleann pipes played by Liam O'Flynn and Paul Brady on mandolin/tin whistle.

It was part of the score to an Irish film in the 1984 directed by Pat O'Connor called "Cal". There is also another track on the soundtrack called Irish Boy which is equally as good.

Mark Knopfler - The Long Road

The Pogues - Sally McLennane (1985)
