If you are familiar with Irish music, you may have spotted the common link in all these recordings is my father, Donal.
This St Patricks Day he is giving a concert in Auckland as part of the Green Fire Islands event, a fascinating project.

This is a small selection of his work, which runs to well over 100 releases.
If you want a good introduction to his music I heartily recommend the
retrospective collection “Journey”, available now from Amazon, click here.

A bunch of tracks by Marxman (a band I was in some time ago) were recently uploaded
for a forthcoming article in Dublin’s State Magazine. Click here to peruse and download.

By request, my Christmas/NYE podcast 2006 has been re-uploaded, four hours of good tunes, click here.

Other stuff:
John Niven’s “Kill Your Friends”. A gleeful Hunter S. style coked-up demolition of the music industry
full of familiar names and close to the bone anecdotes. Its tremendously dark, funny and filthy… click here.

So…as we say farewell to St Patrick let us consider the words of G. Massey, from Zeitgeist:

“They must find it difficult…
Thos who have taken authority as the truth,
Rather than truth as the
authority

Wherever you are in the world, have a good one.
