  1. hi, any chance of gettin this on mp3 ??

  2. Great stuff, think I was at this, was a three band line up, Eugene, Aslan and The Blades. Looks like one of their last few gigs by the timeline.

  3. Mill Mill(white sox and black loafers) Says:

    I was the proudest man in Ireland,was their roadie for about 2 and a half years before they split,was at this gig of course but was very sad cause I knew it was soon to be over.Keep in contact with Brian Foley and constantly tell him to get Paul to reform,there are enough of us that want to see and hear it all again.

  4. Martin conneely Says:

    I think there was a brass section, too. Hear, hear to Mill mill’s comment re reunion – shame to let so much talent fade away. Even if the gigging and promo was a pain, a few songs to buy as downloads would be great.

  5. Wow!!! This is just great – I’ll be playing this over and over and over and re-living my youth!! As for a reunion it would be brilliant but when they played in Waterford in 2001 there were less than 40 people at the gig and most of them stayed at the bar drinking!! So I don’t blame Paul Cleary having little interest in doing it again.

    afraid Pamela was right , we travelled to Dublin in 2001 to see the gig in the Olympia which was reasonably well attended and a great night when Paul s new album came out as i suspected that i would not get to see him in my native Limerick , i was right , so glad i went

    another great clip thanks so much for posting

    Another recording has surfaced over on the ‘Come Here To Me’ blog. It’s a recording of the 23 November 1984 show in the TV Club, Harcourt Street..
