There was a cracking Dublin band knocking around in the late 80's / early 90's called Scale The Heights, then renamed themselves to The Beekeepers. If memory serves me correctly the lead singers name was Dave Carroll. If anyone knows what became of them I'd love to know. I spent many a happy night in thrall to their REM - esque power pop at the Baggot Inn and other long gone relics of Dublin's rock heritage.

Worse, he was exposed as being a sh*t songwriter.

the swastika is a buddhist symbol for peace (ironically enough!) you can see it all over the place in many buddhist countries, nepal, tibet etc, it takes a bit of getting used to though. The reverse swastika is also a symbol for the Bon religion, if you really want to know it determines which way they circumnavigate holy objects, so the buddhists will always go counter clockwise. and thats daragh's table quiz question of the day!

That asteroids single was deadly alright and Delakota's "C'mon Cinncinati" single remains one of my all-time faves. There was also a great act from years (and years) back from Freaky Realistic that i always wondered what happened to. Another great band destined for the shadows are Sweetback (Sade's backing band who released two fine fine albums on their own). Irish acts - I loved that carlow band The Castanedas and always thought they would do better than they did. I hear one of them (the drummer) is now a fairly well-respected artist in New York.

Anyway, he seemed like a twat, although 'Hush' was a good song.
It was also a cover. It was originally a Joe South song altough the most famous version of the song was recorded by Deep Purple. With regards to Krist Novoselic, he formed Sweet 75 who released their self titled album in 1997. More recently he popped up in Eyes Adrift who also released an eponymous debut in 2002.

I saw a book Krist Novoselic wrote recently. Michael Moore type cover. Can't remember what it was called - something softly political.

While we're on the subject of Irish acts that disappeared, anyone know what happened to an Irish big beat duo called Dirty Beatniks? I've got an album they released in 2000 called "Feedback". Its a bit patchy, but it has a couple of really good tracks, especially "Disco Dancing Machines", the video for which got a fair bit of airplay on No Disco at the time.

Catatonia - lead singer Cerys released a not-bad countryish album in 2003 or 2004 Into Paradise - disbanded. think the lead singer is back fixing televisions in Churchtown in Dublin Marxman - disbanded. Oisin Lunny made some great records as Firstborn, a great stomper called "The Mood Club" The Revenants - there was talk of a Stars of Heaven reunion (the band some of the Revenents were in before) but nothing came of it. Stephan Ryan is one of the Ireland's most under-appreciated songwriters Toasted Heretic - lead singer Julian Gough became an author. Good debut novel Juno & Juliet

Disco Dancing Machines was a wicked tune but only the producer or 'beatmaker' was irish, I think. Speaking of big beat, whatever happened to 'lo fidelity allstars.' I loved 'how to operate...' and there were a couple of decent tracks on the last one. Their cover of 'battleflag' is still one of my fave party tunes.

'how to operate....' was a deadly album, heard a few tracks off the last one and wasnt very impressed at all at all, not many bands survive replacing the lead singer

What about the band Big bag of sticks? Or The Pale? Where are you now? Or at the very least, where the flip can I buy some of your old albums? Also a band from Cork that I had an ep of, the Orange Fetishes.... If anyone has any clues please do tell!
