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!

That Petrol Emotion

If pushed to chose our Desert Island Discs ‘Manic Pop Thrill’ by That Petrol Emotion would be on the list. We are excited to hear that 4/5 of that band are about to release a new record. As an excuse to plug the efforts of The Everlasting Yeah to fund ‘Anima Rising‘ here’s an archive interview with one Mickey Bradley from 1986. Mickey’s very first radio show ‘Mickey’s Monkey‘ featured an interview with the band in the very first episode. This particular interview with Ciaran and Raymond was broadcast on the Radio Ulster show ‘The Bottom Line’.

The Everlasting Yeah

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , on October 2, 2012 by Fanning Sessions


The names Raymond Gorman, Ciaran McLaughlin, Brendan Kelly and Damian O’Neill might ring a bell but if not they represent four-fifths of an influential band that went under the name That Petrol Emotion. That band performed a flurry of gigs in 2009 but the fifth member of the band, singer Steve Mack who lives and works in the U.S. is presently coping with his latest gig as a father. Following a 3 song low key performance in March as The Hoodlum Angels the remaining four members are about to tread the boards once again. They have a new name – The Everlasting Yeah and have just been announced as one of the support acts at an upcoming gig by quintessential indie pop band The June Brides in London’s 229 venue on Friday 9th November. Also performing on the night and also needing no introduction will be C86 indie band The Wolfhounds. These three bands make a mouth watering prospect and I’m sure an excellent night awaits. Tickets available here. Update: The first gig was a big success and now a second gig has just been announced – Oxford on Sat 8 December details to follow.
