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.

Nomeansno in McGonagles 1991 is not there (yes it was better than the New Inn gig) so obviously there's pages missing in this book.

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.
