Had to endure the Indians many times as where I grew up all we had in the early 70s were the dance halls and showbands,only place to chat up the girls.Musically though no contest when it comes to Horslips.

Well when you look at the Indians' rig-out and look at what Horslips were wearing, 'twas six of one and half a dozen of the other, really...

Ah but the music was worlds apart.Im not knocking showbands,rural Ireland would have been a lot less fun without them thats for sure but for good music you had to look elsewhere.

Haven't had much time this week but I really must protest at Horslips being mentioned in the same sentence as the Indians showband. Showbands strangled the music scene in all of Ireland for far too long and a lot of talent never saw the light of day as a result.

Apologies if any ex showband members out there but the truth is also out there !

Rant over.....

Three points....

1/ I will have to put something up on the thorny subject of showbands when I have more time.

2/ I can't get to view it either (in the UK.)....

3/ When I was young in Norn Iron..a very long time ago..(cough, cough)...."blocked" was a euphemism for being blootered, hammered, sloshed, etc , etc......Admin will know all about this technical type talk

How about when Our Heroes bring out the live album from their World Tour (in my dreams...) they call it " Blocked In Your Country "????????

Best to all, John R.

Sorry I know I'm late to this...I echo the thoughts on Time To Kill. A classic and for me one of three songs I would have put into the Live at the O2 set. The moment that gets me is midway through when it sounds like it's stopped. Then that triplet phrase comes in and loops a few times, keys added and then bam back into the main guitar riff! Then at the end with the unexpected Gaelic section at the end. Magnificent!

Eh, John (and welcome here by the way), that bit at the end isn't Gaelic, it's the chorus played backwards.

Oh, the days of vinyl, where I ruined many a 'stylus' trying to hear that and many other backward bits!

For backwards English it sounds like very good Gaelic.

Take that how you will.... :)

so i have spent 40 years thinking that the end of time to kill played backwards was " we love Satan,go see the Exorcist in the Adelphi, its great!"

Two thigs spring to mind re the Táin, firstly I actually bought the D D single first, in Dolphin Discs in Capel Street, i dropped it on the way home,and to my horror a chunk was takien off the edge. luckily, when i got it home, it still played the full sonng, albeit with a micro second to spare!
I also remember the excitement/astonishment of listening to Radio Luxembourg, and Kid Jensen playing More Than You Can Chew, he described it as "curly music", its only now that I wonder if it was short and curly he was referring to, given the innuendo possible from the title and lyrics!

Talking to a record collector only yesterday, he reckons the Táin gatefold with original inner sleeve is worth 150 quid !! I think I`ve two of them, up to the attic, quick!
