Hey Paulette (Peel Session)
A couple of excellent articles in the newspapers this weekend by Nick Kelly and Sinead Gleeson have given me cause to think of Derrick Dalton and by extension the music of his band Hey Paulette. In the case of this band it was John Peel and not Dave Fanning who was to first bring them to our attention. On 13th October 2005 Hey Paulette reformed after fifteen years to pay homage to John Peel at a John Peel tribute night. Derrick died two years ago but to celebrate his life, his wife Laura James has organised a benefit gig in his honour. The gig is tomorrow night in Whelan’s and features The Dinah Brand (which count Stephen Ryan ex The Stars of Heaven and The Revenants) alongside Thread Pulls, Richer Than Astronauts and Little Beauties. The €12 admission includes the Aeromodeller album ‘First Flight’ and an unreleased copy of Crumb’s ‘Like Goodbye’ single. All proceeds go to Aware.
