Anyone else sick of this whole Chris DeBurgh hates reviewers debate? Yeah me too. For what it’s worth however, I thought Peter Crawley’s review let himself down somewhat. He’s a fine writer and a very fine reviewer, but his CdB review was full of easy snipes. Sure we all know CdB is cheezy as cheddar, but tell us a bit about the show…at least for those interested enough to read the review. Nonetheless, the whole thing is, as one commentator noted, ‘a storm in an espresso cup’.
Cois Fharrige takes place in Kilkee, Co Clare this weekend. Too far and too soon after the Picnic for me to travel. This is a weekend of R&R for me. However, am I the only one that teeny bit excited about The Lightning Seeds playing? Yes, yes they were never a great great band, but they had some gems in their canon and their Greatest Hits is a fine, easy Saturday afternoon slice of near-heavenly pop. I’m buzzing on these two tunes below at the moment. Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll be buzzing on a bit of this.
