Pimp My iPod (Cuid A Do)

Micheal Mee hosts a weekly show on 2XM called ‘Pimp My iPod’. Yesterday he had a second Irish special and a humdinger it was too. It started off with a few familiar tunes and then about half way through took a detour into more challenging terrain where I had to do a bit of work to identify the album if not the artist. There was one immediately recognisable voice but not the band and then one artist I’d never heard before (and a few search engine minutes doesn’t leave me much the wiser). Anyway the result was a rewarding listen and I’ll be tuning into the repeat tonight at 9pm with my trusty tape deck at the ready.

The Boomtown Rats – Looking After Number 1 (1977)
Stiff Little Fingers – Listen (£1.10 Or Less EP, 1982)
The Revenants – Ted’s Tune (Horse Of A Different Colour, 1993)

A House – I’ll Always Be Grateful (On Our Big Fat Merry-Go-Round, 1988)
The Divine Comedy – Queen Of The South (Liberation, 1993)

John Hegarty – The Silence With Ease (Twilight, 2000)
