    Thanks for loading up these excerpts as I missed them all this week
    What to say , he s left a great legacy and some great gigs , the Irish tour in 1980 which included , the Bulgaden Inn , Kilmallock , the Scout Hall in Nenagh and old Crescent rugby club in Limerick , we went to all 3 , then the reformed gigs in the Village and Dolan s , the Pogues in Shinrone , Tipperary fairly early on

    I remember walking every record shop in Dublin trying to find the 7 inch Kitty Rickets by Agnes Bernelle on its release ! which I finally secured

    Buying Ghostown on its release on foot of a great review in Hot Press and being gob smacked at how good it was , I recall subsequently reading that it only sold under a 1000 copies

    RIP Phil
