The Radiators From Space need no introduction. In 2004 the seminal Irish punk outfit reconvened with 2 new members for an appearance at Oxegen under the name Radiators Plan 9. A day earlier on 9th July 2004 they recorded 3 tracks live in Studio 8 and an interview for John Kelly’s Mystery Train then on RTE Radio 1. This interview and session was later broadcast with an additional track recorded at Oxegen. The Radiators Plan 9 were Philip Chevron (vocals, guitar, bass), Pete Holidai (vocals, guitar), Steve Rapid (vocals, tambourine), Cait O’Riordan (vocals, bass)and Johnny Bonnie (vocals, drums). The 40th anniversary edition of ‘Ghostown’ is due for release in July 2019. Thank you John and Martin Foyle for the cassette. The latest incarnation of the Radiators is The Trouble Pilgrims.
