    right, all this best albums and best band stuff got me thinkin. Which hurt a little for a minute. I'm sure we're all familiar with conversations among musicians about who the best drummer/guitar player/singer/bass player etc is alive/ was ever, how about a few ideas for the ideal Irish "Super group" (Copyright for use of this term belongs to the 1970's) Personally I'm not too fussy on the definition of "Irish" for the sake of a light hearted discussion, (although considering the upcoming referendum maybe it is something that should be stipulated clearly, ) Heres my own choices. Drums: Brian Downey Bass/Vocals: Phil Lynnot Vocals: Joe Wall and the guy from Republic of Loose swapping duties. Lead Guitar: Rory Gallagher Rhythm Guitar: Kevin Shields Acoustic Guitar: Paul Brady Miscellaneous string instruments (banjo excluded): Donal Lunny Some will probably knock my choice for being predictable, but as I'm a common idiot, I will graciously accept criticism. Actually replace graciously with childishly. so come on people, start blasting me with criticism for missing some glaringly obvious choices!

Lead Guitar: Shane McGowan Rhythm Guitar: Bono Acoustic Guitar: Paddy Casey Lead Vocals: Julian Gough Miscellaneous string instruments (G. Strings): Bellefire Brass Section: Therapy?

    that actually sounds good. if your gonna have an irish super group from hell, you gots to get it right! we have ample talent for such an occassion. how about a barbershop quartet with daniel o donnell, declan nearney, jimmy buckley and sean wilson? or, a hip hop crew... phil coulter-producer(prodoocer) jerry fish-m.c.("the irish super group from hell ladies and gentleman" said ad nauseum). Glen hansard-second m.c.(streets style story telling) eileen reid and twink-sulrty backing vocals christy moore- third m.c.(evil only by context) sean wilson- accordian/beats connor from the thrills- fourth m.c. (no doubt he would go on about his peeps in the ghetto and all his homies locked down, just to keep it real thrills style, nowaisay'n'? he may even invest in shoe polish and move to compton for a week). nasty nasty.

    Drums: Myself Lead Guitar: John O'Neill (undertones) Rhythm Guitar: Ivana Backik (off the Labour party- see election posters) Bass: 40 Coats Vocals: Zig and Zag That'd sound pretty s**te, but would look interesting. i'd give it a go, i hear that Ivana Backik bird plays a mean tapping solo. SHREDFEST!

    I remember when I used to go to the Angler's Rest in Chapelizod every Sunday night to see this guy John Hurley on Gtr/vox, a bass player and drummer. One of the best gigs ever happened there every week to a huge crowd of about 20 - 30 people. It was kind of Irish bluesy jazzy accoustic rock. He f*cked off back to Kerry last I heard. That man was a genius! Worst band - The Thrills!
