Hi guys,
I looked in to see if anyone was talking about Charles' Shell Album which is now on CD. Not yet! I'll put it on a thread
On the America election I don't see it as the lesser of 2 evils. We laughed in amusement when Trump was elected. What a clown he would be! Then we discovered, he has the values of a Mafia leader, Don, and the power of the president of the USA.
My fear is he corrupts the next election and keeps power!

It has impacted us here in Ireland and Uk...... directly! Trump has set precedents in world politics. Integrity should underpin politics. Trump's survival has undermined that in the USA, and set the environment where integrity is disposable. That transferred to UK politics. But it's diffent there, Boris Johnson is the clown, a shallow shamless
puppet actor. He is front man for 2 daggered witches, Gove and Cummings, who don't have an ounce of compassion or integrity between them. The game at play has no winners. We are angry in Northern Ireland, all of us. Scotland is angry. Ireland is angry. Europe is angry and many of the thinking people in England are angry. Where is it all going next? Who knows! Boris doesn't and witches dont care. If I could un-hitch from the UK I would do it now! Not for any aspiration of Mother Ireland, but to be rid of the links to the government that is risking the peace and stability we have here. It took generations to arrive at a peaceful, everyone-wins, situation here in Northern Ireland. It was built slowly and painfully through years of thought, navigation, balance, and integrity. The brexiteers have shown no evidence of realism or sustained thinking. Let's make a deal, like en-stuff, and can I have a bag of cheesenonion crisps.
And Trump has influnced this, he set the scene where this is ok. He needs removed, one way or another!

And John(DD) i was in your Donegal yesterday, out for a drive. Gorgeous day. Came back through Derry and wondered as you have been, "will Covid be sorted by March?". Its a good question. I was meant to see Jim Nelis but he couldn't make it at the time.
Too bad about rob strong.
Hope to see you next year.
Stephen

A very sad time and an enormous loss for Jim and his family. There were a lot of good times along the way.
Rest in peace Frances.

You kind of think that Angel is a newish album. A handful of years ago 5, maybe 6 years. But it was released in 1995. Wow!

Hey Rob,
I just read through that programme. A lot of detail there I didn't pick up at the time. Incuding Byrne's involvement with The Late Late Show.

Was CD imagined at the time? It was released in December that year.
Surprising the BBC doesn't seem to have TV footage. Thank God for Daragh.

Saw the 50 Best Ever Irish album's list.
The editor must have been on holidays, or sick, or in prison.
The list was part tips for the future, but with some proven but random great albums albums thrown in. It was neither one thing or other.
The former (part) was repurposed without much effort from a list 6 months ago published in Entertainment.ie by L Murphy. It was 2010s decade centric. Ms Murphy has previous! She reviewed Horslips Biography and commented it was flawed.
Lists come and go like buses, but Murphy took to Twitter and cited only Horslips fans as huffing and puffing & jeered for debate, but the kickback was derision.

Here is the Ballyshannon Rory Fest moved to 2021.
Let's hope things are sorted so that John ( Dongegal Dub) Ward doesnt need another virtual Utube gig.

Here's a trailer clip. I thought it was a great film.

A full year slip from original dates. Hor-slips.
Hard to take in.
The days since March have been like groundhog day, and not always in a bad way.
The Kilkenny trad fest cancelled for a full year at the time. A hard decsion but wise.

Thanks Mike in Germany and Mick (who spent some time working in Germany).
My Germany family tracked this down for me and send it over this week. It might be the same programme Digger talked about last year.

The Horslips clips are just a few seconds at around 6 1/2 minutes and in the last minute too.

Hey thank-you Mighty Mads.

The wife told me she'd got me some vinyl!
It was 3 cans of vinyl silk emulsion. Her own birthday is Monday, and I've got her a surprise. It's a paint roller - I think she'll be pleased.
And a DVD arrived from my German crew with a clip from last year's Belfast concerts. Just a few seconds of Horslips but interesting. I don't know how they got it. I'll get it on Utube in a day or so.

And I got a Txt from Noel, he wished me a happy birthday and insulted the family. Everything is normal!
