Irish bands that rock- (not Bono)
March 03, 2009 03:11PM
Hey, I'll be on-the-air for 2 hours on St. Patty's night. I'm hoping to play some cool Irish bands. I have the Undertones all lined up, but who else? I won't play traditional Irish Folk. I'm doing throat culture cafe, 7 to 9. I hope lotsa of drunk weirdos call in.

Microdisney, "Singer's Hampstead Home"

Cathal Coughlan, Microdisney's singer, went on to form Fatima Mansions:



Sean O'Hagan, their guitarist, founded The High Llamas:



O"Hagan sometimes plays with Kev Hopper (www.spoombung.co.uk), who used to play in the band Stump:



Gavin Friday, ex-Virgin Prunes, has some good songs, though he's possibly tainted by his association with U2
(he gave them their nicknames):



I like some of David Holmes' stuff, especially the albums "Let's Get Killed" and "Bow Down to the Exit Sign":



And then there's Them:

I can only think of one band--Slade. All others range from tame to lame to ass-sucking. The Irish generally make shitty music, shitty beer, really shitty food, and halfway decent whiskey. Oh, and shitty lovers.
