“Dublin’s most uncompromising rockers” Dave Fanning

From Dublin, Real Wild West were Charlie Rafferty (bass & vocals), Paul Murtagh (guitar), Robbie Warren (drums) and Ian Smith (trumpet). Thank you stilpix for the very cool poster for a gig in The Project with The Golden Horde, Guru Wierdbrain, The Amazing Colossal Men and Duane Ripley and his Gogo Set. Fondly remembered by respected opinion Real Wild West recorded an album for Setanta Records which unfortunately never saw the light of day. Thanks to Cork Zine Archive for the tape recording.

The Real Wild West

Today we have a track from ‘great lost Irish band of the 1980’s’ (according to The Irish Punk And New Wave Discography and who are we to argue) The Real Wild West. From Dublin and comprising Charlie Rafferty (bass & vocals), Paul Murtagh (guitar), Robbie Warren (drums) and Ian Smith (trumpet) this band was active from 1984 until 1990. This was taped in 1989 and we do not know what the track title is nor it’s ordinance, corrections as always most welcome.. Update: Thanks to Brian the track has been identified as the B side of ‘The Sixties’ produced by none other than Shane Macgowan and Philip Chevron.
