South Of Heaven

‘South Of Heaven’ is the title of a Stars Of Heaven Tribute which never saw the light of day. Featuring a veritable who’s who of the Irish music business and such luminaries as Something Happens! and Everything But The Girl as well as local favourites Hey Paulette and Engine Alley to name but two. The Firestation Records blog has the tracklisting and a snap of the album cover. The album was to have been released on the Mickey Rourke’s Fridge label run by ‘enigmatic‘ Sean A Mc Dermott and associated with Hey Paulette a band who once featured ex Stars of Heaven man Stan Erraught. The album was even reviewed by Hot Press. This all started when I came across ‘Smalltown Reel’ while browsing the Hey Paulette archive on the Crumb site and then yesterday Dave Fanning was on Tom Dunne’s Newstalk show talking of things Stars Of Heaven and Revenants.
