The Practical Householders


From Athy in Co Kildare, The Practical Householders were Trisha Smyth (lead vocals), Jackie Kelly (backing vocals), Mick O’Rourke (guitar), Colm Walsh (accordion), Pat Casey (bass) and Dave Ward (drums). Paul Donohue and Dave Mullhall replaced Pat and Dave respectively in 1987 and it is they who feature on this recording. This track was taken from the Comet Two sampler. The original lineup recorded a 3 track demo which was produced by Stano. Expect another post when we get our hands on a copy. There are photos so as soon as we can locate one will update this post.
