Some of our favourite bands come from Derry so when we heard that Radio Foyle’s Stephen McCauley was doing an ‘Electric Mainline’ special looking at some of the best alternative acts to come out of that neck of the woods in the 1990s we scrambled for a blank cassette to capture the occasion. As you might imagine the music is interspersed with some insightful details by Stephen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did. The show featured tracks  from That Petrol Emotion, The Carrellines, The Turtle Assassins, Cuckoo, Schtum (pictured), LUKiC, Gradapenda Rosindale, Clearshot, The Screaming Bin Lids, The New Capris, DJ-VU, Rare and The Deadly Engines.  As usual if you have any sessions/interviews (Fanning or other) by any of these bands please get in touch. And if any other DJs feel like doing something similar for your city of choice we’d love to hear about it!

The Carrellines
recorded a 5 track Fanning session in 1988 which is, surprise surprise, lost in the RTE archive. Today’s post instead features the band’s 1990 single on Car Records. Featuring Paul McLoone (vocals & guitar), Aidan Breslin (guitar, keyboards), Damien Duffy (bass, keyboards) and Billy Doherty (drums) the Derry band formed in 1986 and disbanded soon after winning the Carling/Hot Press Band Of The Year in 1990. Billy Doherty was a member of Derry’s most famous sons The Undertones whose ranks Paul McLoone was to join in 1999 when that band reformed initially for a one off gig. As anyone who has seen the most recent incarnation of The Undertones will testify the man does an impressive job of filling Fergal Sharkey’s shoes. McLoone is probably most well known however in his guise as TodayFM alternative radio show host Monday-Thursday 9pm – midnight.
