Cork’s Burning Embers have featured before but the above newspaper clipping of Dave Fanning’s Radio Rock Selection in The Sunday World (26th June 1987) prompted a root around. This single from 1987 was released on Nouveau Wax and features Sean O’Neill (vocals), Christine Utzeri (vocals), John Poland (guitars), Mel Poland (bass), Gordon Ashe (drums) and guest pianist Niall Macken.

Okay time for some music from Cork. Burning Embers were Sean O’Neill (vocals), John Poland (guitars), Niall Macken (keyboards), Mel Poland (bass), Gordon Ashe (drums). They sent Dave Fanning a demo in 1986 and this is one of the tracks. According to the Irish Rock Discography the band went on to release 3 singles and this song made the b-side of second single ‘Keep On Pushing’. The band also had a track ‘Sweet Young Lady’  feature on the Hot Press ‘Best Cork album in the world… ever!‘ concept album compiled by Paul O’Mahony and Jim Comet.
