The Golden Horde (1984 Session)

Kudos to Dan Hegarty for keeping the Fanning session flame alight. Every Tuesday he features two archive sessions on his show, one of which is a Fanning session. Recent weeks have seen appearances from Whipping Boy, Engine Alley and Kerbdog. Up this week was a session recorded on 10th September 1984 by The Golden Horde. Irishrock.org lists The Golden Horde circa 1984 as Simon Carmody (vocals), Bernie Furlong (vocals), Des O’Byrne (guitar), Donal Murray (bass) and Peter O’Kennedy (drums). According to Ian Wilson who produced, the band on this occasion featured Johnny Fean of Horslips on additional guitar. The photo is by Conor Horgan. When questioned on a recent David Hepworth and Mark Ellen video podcast appearance Dave agreed there should be albums of Fanning sessions but said he was “too lazy to do something about it”.
