Ah I half looked at it lastnight. There were was some spat and yerman weighed in in fluent 'i've spent the past few years getting all my information from Joerden Rogenson and this is cultural marxism' and yerwan who used to run a high profile campaign acc decided he was cancelled and about 4 people cared. That national burning of ROL materials has been moved from the aviva to a smaller venue AFAIK.
I'd say they'll be grand.

Its kinda mad that even in the internet, things can be hard to find. I'm also curious about this record. I was aware at the time people liked it but never heard it.
It's times like this you'd miss the big torrent tracker sites like oink or what. Whatever about the legalities of them the loss of those servers was like burning the library of alexandria.

It came from this, he responded saying it was censorship or something, i've forgotten his actual now-deleted tweet response, there were many trigger words suggesting too much Spiked-Online



Gonna stick my head out a bit and say while I'm a big fan of Dean's writing normally, I don't think it's his call on whether or not Versatile should split up. Not that he's saying it's his call in fairness, just his recommendation.

I remember he won the 'Nialler9 album of the year' award (usually reserved for Super Extra Bonus Party)

Phantom had him on the phone one time and asked him how it felt to have won the Nialler9 award.

His reply was, 'Who is Nialler9"?

He forever had a place in my heart after that.

Here look - this is great and would be on my list. Disclaimer - Don't really know him other than bumping into him once through work, so 'know him and sound' probably not a factor. Didn't pay huge attention to previous work either. This one grabbed me anywhoioiooo.

I loved the Big Romance. Had that album on repeat back in THE DAY. I listened to it recently and it's still decent. Never listened to anything by him after that.

I mentioned the twentieth anniversary of The Big Romance coming up to someone the other day and they replied with "God next year will the twentieth anniversary of loads of mediocre Irish albums won't it?" :cry:

Nineteen year old me would be fierce upset by this list but now I'll just bookmark it alongside every other list and cod myself that I'll make some great discovery out of working my way through it.

That Si Schroeder album is definitely one of my favs of all time though and I get annoyed every six months or so when I remember it isn't on Spotify.

Ah, the David Kitt's and the Damien Rice's soft voiced emo Irish men were a scourge 20 years ago and they're a scourge now.

Surprised there's nothing on that list representing the Irish math and post-rock stuff?

YOUR a scurge 20 years ago.

I avoided a lot of this stuff at the time for that reason. I also am a soft voiced Irish man. I think the present crop are worse, Its all happening for the Irish women though. You been following CMAT?

I have yeah. Seems alright, the Irish twitter mob love her which is kind of the modern version of having an Irish number one isn't it? Honestly she sounds quite like Land Lovers to me.

I wasn't too into it until she did the dance tutorial video on insta. I agree with you - Yeah most certainly is having hits with her stuff. I like how she does melody a lot, like singing is fun or something.
