Nick Cave Interview (30th April 1992)

Posted in Fanning, interview with tags , on June 15, 2013 by Fanning Sessions


I don’t do festivals but if I did this year’s Body & Soul at Ballinlough Castle, Co Meath would be top of the list. Dave Fanning interviewed Kurt Vile on Thursday night but 21 years ago he interviewed another performer at next weekend’s festival.

Sons of the Desert (Interview & Session)

Posted in Fanning, interview, live, Music with tags , , on September 25, 2012 by Fanning Sessions

Not to be confused with the US band of the same name, Sons of the Desert were from London and by all accounts toured with The Pogues.. On this visit to Dave Fanning at RTE studios the lineup was Ewan Shiels (vocals, mandolin), Stephen Harrison (bass), Tracey Booth (vocals, bodhran), Johnny Nolan (guitar) and Joseph Doherty (violin and saxophone). I believe this recording is from 1992 and look forward as always to your corrections and elaborations... According to Frank this recording is from 1990.

From Dublin, Peach were Shane Leinster (vocals, guitar), Darren Hand (bass), Mick Creedon (guitar), and Greg McQuaid (drums). Greg was later replaced by Sean Ryan from the Honeythieves. The band recorded a Fanning session in March/April 1992 but they no longer have a copy of that recording. This track appeared on the ‘Breaking Sound Barriers Vol. 2‘ compilation from that same year. Peach recently feature in the Hot Press Unsigned Irish Music Act 1991 post. Mick Creedon later went on to join The Joys and Junkster. If anyone has a copy of the lost session we’d love to hear from you..

Foreign Correspondents were Niall Nolan (vocals), Rory McGarry (guitar), Eamonn Kelly (bass) and Morgan Mullen (drums). This demo is I believe from 1992. The cassette was borrowed from manager Colm Duignan.
