I see someone is taking legal action against the delivery company All trans because none of their drivers are actually trans. I think it's a claim of false advertising.
the trans siberian railway does prove that the railway industry is very modren in how it approaches the burning issues of the day.

However, the band's popularity continued to wane and in May, 1974, they made the biggest change to a band's look since the Casino Showband donned feathers to become The Indians. They painted their faces black and went on the road as The Black and White Dixie Minstrel Show. Echoing back to the days of Al Jolson, the band released a record which included a medley of Oh Suzanna and Camptown Races. They had a chart hit with the song, Stranger in My Place in June that reached number 13 on the Irish charts. However, the experiment was doomed to fail and by year's end, the band had reverted to The Dixies.

WTF ? Joe McCarthy's my showband hero :

JOE MAC AND THE DIXIES - Cabbage Head (cover of Stan Ridgeway's - Camouflage)
loved this when i saw them play it on RTE in 1986.

JOE MAC AND THE DIXIES - Boney Maroney. Joe in full Teddy Boy mode.

JOE MAC and BRENDAN GRACE - Save Your Love (Renee and Renato)

from memory - Joe's son Aidan (who died in a car crash) taught one of the
NUNATTAX / FIVE GO DOWN TO THE SEA lads to play guitar.

i'm not sure if it's a Cork thing but i see some similar surreal humor in Joe
and those bands. Joe just does it in a showband/entertainer style.
