A House (1988 Session)

a house

Today we have two thirds of the second session by irish indie heroes A House. Dave Couse (vocals & guitar), Fergal Bunbury (guitar), Martin Healy (bass) and Dermot Wylie (drums) released five albums between 1988 and 1996 when they finally threw in the towel. Dave Couse of course went on to release two further solo records the most recent of which The World Should Know in 2005 was especially impressive. I personally still kick myself that I never took the opportunity to see his band tour that album because if their Other Voices: Songs From A Room performance was anything to go by they were one tight outfit. Please do yourself a favour and tune into his Today FM show on Sunday nights at 10pm as the guy still confounds expectations.

Looks like I’m not the only one who enjoyed that Other Voices performance. The Impossibles unfortunately are no more but were Pete Meighan (guitar), Simon Quigley (keyboards), Dave Flynn (bass) and Mike O’Dowd (drums) .

    Need any help? Sounds like you might have some interesting cassettes of your own 😉 If I can be of any assistance just let me know!

  3. How do you convert the tapes

  4. Fanning Sessions Says:

    Does your computer have line-in? If so then assuming you still have your cassette deck all you need is a cable to hook the player to the line-in. Some laptops now seem to only have microphone in so if that is the case you’ll need a different method.

    If you don’t have line-in then something like this should do the trick (I’ve never used this device)..
