Boa Morte (2003 Session)

Whilst listening to C90s of Jay Ahern‘s RTE 2fm show which we were coaxed into digging out, we came across this long sought after session by Cork’s answer to The Blue Nile, Boa Morte. At this time sessions recorded for the Dave Fanning show were shared, Dave would play a couple of tracks with Jay airing the remainder during his 11pm-2am show. We stumbled across Dan’s show by accident and it immediately became essential listening, the late hour was to prove a blessing in disguise. The weekly routine became: start listening to show, put C90 in the deck to record and then head off to bed, wake up to a newly minted mixtape. Another listener who remembers Jay Ahern’s 2fm stint fondly can be found waxing lyrical on Fractured Air. There’s a lot to be said for a weekly radio show of genuine quality.

From Cork, Boa Morte are Bill Twomey (guitar), Maurice Hallissey (drums), Paul Ruxton (guitar, vocals), Cormac Gahan (guitar, vocals). This track was to appear 7 years later on the second and most recent Boa Morte album ‘The Dial Waltz’ (2010). Their debut ‘Soon It Will Come Time To Face The World Outside’ was released in 2002. Bill and Cormac also featured in The Lemmings.
