    Songs by Irish bands that should have been worldwide hits

    They were pretty big in Ireland back in the day weren't they? When I went back to listen to them a few years back I was amazed at their range. They seemed to be the missing link from A-House to a rake of other rock and pop bands of the time. The t-shirt of A Map Of The Universe that I stole from...

    Jesus, this is incredible. Never heard of it before. Devastating in the best sense.

    Your work situation

    My manager is a barely competent arsehole and disses my work to other colleagues. I'm fit to murder her. When I am in the office I get endless inane questions about simple shit like downloading files. If my home situation wasn't so difficult to deal with I'd have looked for a transfer ages...

    Minor complaints thread

    I find it was I've got to the age where it is only socially acceptable to dance at things like my nieces' weddings or the Queen of England's passing.

    Are there any Punks actually left on Eirecore?

    Janer came to one of my gigs in Anseo years ago and declared scientifically i wasn't even 0.01 percent punk.

    Wow, I have just discovered...

    Apart from most of that not being remotely punk, the fucking cost of the compilation. Merciful hour.

    The Russian invasion of Ukraine

    Russia apparently didn't do all too well in Georgia in '08 but their now apparent weaknesses were less of an issue in such an asymmetrical war. In contrast, Ukraine has been preparing to fight this war by among other things learning from Azerbaijani tactics in the 2020 Artsakh War around the...

    Northern Ireland

    Aye, it seems like an interim federation, slowly coalescing the two, might be on the cards. Germany reunified in jig time though so who knows?

    Northern Ireland

    The election result, while significant to some degree, is really not all that indicative of whether the North is ready to vote to join the Republic. Alliance, if not Unionist, is biased towards Unionist and I also suspect many people don't take Assembly Elections this year that seriously...

    Northern Ireland

    Last point is relevant with regard to white minority in South Africa, post Apartheid. The Afrikaaners have similarly deep roots and were always a minority in what was the state of South Africa but ultimately there will have to be a big dollop of like it or lump it. Nobody outside Ireland other...

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    Watched the first few episodes of The Goldbergs. Had watched it on TV with my ma a few times but actually sitting down to watch it properly I was very charmed. There's 10 seasons so I doubt I'll watch it all the way through.

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    It's A Sin. In parts brilliant. One of the episodes is amongst the saddest things I have ever watched. The nod to Are You Being Served? is well done and Neil Patrick Harris is great in his small part in it. They don't over egg the signifiers of each year, though I'm not sure they got the look...

    The video for The Corrs So Young doesn't match the song lyrics at all.

    It was always a solid slab of trad pop.

    That's a pretty good song.
