Jim says someone in the book chose Kid Creole & the Coconuts. I wasn't there but they're probably correct.

There was a similar list up on Hot Press recently enough:

Hot Press - Top 50 Gigs in Ireland Ever

I was at at least 3 of the gigs mentioned there and they weren't that good.
Hmmm...
Green Day
The Attic, Dublin
Dec '91

On the cusp of a big deal, Green Day were tight and organised musically with a great frontman in Billy Joe. Though things almost got out of hand when they took their clothes off!
I was there and I have no recollection of that happening.

oh, so it's favourite gigs of Irish people, as opposed to Irish gigs.

I see.

I was at approximately zero of the gigs listed.

also, the book should be titled 'Gigs that happened before you were born', and sold to millenial hipsters.
