The Stars are Underground
We’ve long been a fan of Pat Clafferty. He first came to our attention with The Riordans. Next came Mexican Pets. And finally there was Wheel. All three bands recorded Fanning sessions but unfortunately as yet we only have The Riordans. The reason we mention Pat is because he is organising an evening ‘Celebrating Irish independent music from the 90s‘ in The Grand Social on 29th December at 8pm. Niall McGuirk of Hope and Paul Shanahan of Blunt will also be DJing.
‘The Stars are Underground’ is also the title of a 1996 documentary by Daragh McCarthy which features some bands who might make an appearance next Monday.. Two excellent sites you should check out are blunt and rekcollector. And it goes without saying if you have any Fanning sessions for us please get in touch..
Finally we have a track titled ‘The Stars are Underground’ from another Patrick Clafferty project, Reno 5. Recorded in London 1999, the band also features Michael Mullen, Ivan Birthistle and Ross Neville.
