I missed it first time round as well, is it true that Siouxsie Sioux was moshing with Shane McGowan?Any reason that article is getting a second lap?
That article about the article paints it all incorrectly, the original article basically argues that Bono killed anything good about Irish rock when he started palling around with the G8 and calling capitalism the greatest invention of all time, and that any good music coming from Ireland in 2020 either comes from immigrant communities or people on the fringes who are going to stay on the fringes (like, Lankum are pretty big but they're not going to be selling out Croke Park). I mean, yeah.
Joe Cleary was my lecturer in Maynooth way back in the day. Angry, angry man.
