Into Paradise (1989 Rehearsal Tape)

A recent post on the Into Paradise facebook page grabbed our attention – they had uncovered an unreleased demo from 1990 called ‘On Every Page‘. We contacted Dave and he provided some detail:

Jimmy Eadie found the tape.
 
On Every Page and Dive Instrumental live mixes were recorded in July 1990 , a month before we went to London to record Churchtown.
 
The Waterboys had cancelled a session in Ringsend Road studios, Ensign rang us to see if we wanted to use the free time.
 
Willie Mannion was the engineer on the session.
 
I think we only did the one night.
 
We then went to an early house at 6am and had a rake of pints and forgot all about the recording….
 

Dave also sent a number of further recordings and kindly allowed us post this track from a 1989 rehearsal tape.

Fans of Into Paradise should check out Dave’s recent appearance on Paul McDermott’s podcast ‘To Here Knows When’ to look at albums ‘Under The Water’ and ‘Churchtown’. Dave has been busy of late releasing solo material and most recently working with Shane O’Neill of Blue In Heaven, the pair releasing ‘age of finding stars‘ in April.
