We should really have posted this before Dave Couse’s by now ritual bank holiday appearance on TodayFM (or waited for next one) but as usual we weren’t ready. Thanks to Anthony for sending this one in, turns out it’s a rare copy of the very first demo recorded by A House. So rare in fact that this otherwise excellent A House fansite doesnt list it.. And while we are on the subject if anyone has a copy of ‘Live At The Underground‘ can you please holler! Artwork by Fergal Bunbury.

Came across this snippet when working on the recently posted 1990 interview, this is a short segment from 1991 with A House prior to the release of their third album ‘I Am the Greatest’. Up for discussion are: getting dropped by Blanco Y Negro, the vocals for ‘Heart Happy’. signing to Setanta Records, Keith Cullen, not getting on the BBC playlist. If the remainder turns up I shall update the post.

Prior to the release of their second album ‘I Want Too Much’ Dave Couse (vocals & guitar), Fergal Bunbury (guitar), Martin Healy (bass), Dermot Wylie (drums) aka A House had a chat with Dave Fanning from London where the band were performing as part of an Irish rock week in The Mean Fiddler. The performance of ‘Violent Love’ at the end is well worth the wait. Dave Couse can of course be heard every Sunday on TodayFM from 10pm until midnight.

Apologies for the radio silence of late, things have been a tad hectic around Sessions Manor. Anyway to prove I haven’t completely checked out here’s a 1993 live set from perennial indie darlings A House. Recorded at that year’s Feile here’s some Dave Couse to keep you going at least until his TodayFM radio show kicks off at 10pm. Thank you to the kind reader / listener who dug this one out.
