The Outpatients….! (1988 Demo)

outpatients

From Finglas in Dublin, The Outpatients were Ronan Collins (drums), Pat Kelly (vocals & guitar), Greg O’Beirne (guitar) and Noel Cunningham (bass). ‘Pearl’ is a longtime favourite round these parts so it is a source of embarrassment that we have not featured them until now. This recording comes from the Pat O’Mahony collection which has been digitised and returned but so far only dipped into. There were two other Outpatients tapes in Pat’s box but unfortunately they would not play, we suspect the The Outpatients took a leaf from the Mission Impossible playbook – the tapes self destruct after 30 years. Thanks to Gavin for the gentle reminder. If there are others you’d like to hear then make yourselves heard. For some great comments check out this post on the Dublin Opinion blog as part of their Irish music thread. The Outpatients have also featured on the excellent Cloudberry Records blog.
