Who is this Dempsey bloke you speak of Lionel? I’m assuming he plays with some popular beat combo. I suppose he’s been on Xfactor or had a minor entry in the hit parade. Cool, dude, swing rocks and the chicks love it. Peace man.

No accounting for taste. I'm going to a Pat Manus gig on Fri. Greatest living Irish guitarist by a considerable distance but rarely gets the support he deseres.

I liked Ash when I was about 16. I don't think that they ever lost that school boy garage band sound. I once had a discussion with someone on whether Tim Wheeler is actually singing. We concluded that it was inconclusive.

Here's the lyrics of a typical Damian Dempsey song, who'd pay to listen to that?


I am an angry man yeah, I vent it when I can, yeah
On the bag, not the skag
The negativity, yeah, pushed onto young paddy, yeah
Is a shame, whose to blame?
And when the baby cries, yeah, she has been criticised, yeah
Been put down, it's passed down

But it's all good, it's all good
All I say to you today
It's all good, sure it's all good
All I say to you today

And positivity, yeah, it is the way for me, yeah
It is truth, it is youth
They try to keep us down, yeah
They hide the high kings crown, yeah
From the Gaels, Kathleen wails
And to survive their sting, yeah
You have to be the king, yeah
Grasp the wealth of yourself

But it's all good, it's all good
All I say to you today
It's all good, sure it's all good
All I say to you today
Love yourself today, ok, ok
Love yourself today, ok, ok
Yes, that's me in the avatar!

Not one of his greatest but he does usually give his lyrics a bit of thought, including 'Colony' below.

As a Lionel, I imagine I'm not necessarily part of his target audience. I feature on the DVD of one of his shows at the Shepherd's Bush Empire. Not just the film, the actual DVD. Best I ever saw him was at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles in 2015 when we took the long way round to Galway to see the rugby.

I sing the song of the colony
How many years and you're still not free
And your mother cries and you ask god why
Greed is the knife and the scars run deep
How many races with much reason to weep
And your children cry
And you ask god why

Annie, she came from Dunlavin Town
The TB came and killed her family all around
Population booms
Eleven in two rooms
Katie she came from down Townsend street
Ten in a bed and no shoes on their feet
1916 came
They played the patriots game
Freddy, he came from the Iveagh flats
Tenement slums and infested with rats
Sleeping on damp straw
Trying not to break the law
Thomas, he came from Kilmaine in Mayo
Semi starvation was the only life you'd know
In a two room shack
Then jailed in Letterfrack

I look to the east, I look to the west
To the north and the south, and I'm not too impressed
Time after time
After crime after crime
They raped, robbed, pillaged, enslaved and murdered
Jesus Christ was their god and they done it in his name
So he could take the blame if it's not all a game
With bible in one hand and a sword in the other
They came to purify my land of my Gaelic Irish mothers
And fathers, and sisters and brothers
With our own ancient customs, laws, music, art
Way of life and culture
Tribal in structure
We had a civilisation
When they were still neanderthal nations
We suffer with the Native American, the Indian in Asia
Aboriginal Australia
The African people with their history so deep
And our children still weep and our lives are still cheap
You came from Germany, from France, from England
And from Spain
From Belgium and from Portugal
You all done much the same

You took what was not yours
Went against your own bible
You broke your own laws
Just to out do the rival
But did you ever apologize
For the hundreds and millions of lives
You destroyed and terrorised
Or have you never realized
Did you never feel shame
For what was done in your country's name
And find out who's to blame and why they were so inhumane
And still they teach you in your school
About those glorious days of rule
And how it's your destiny to be
Superior to me
But if you've any kind of mind
You'll see that all human kind
Are the children of this earth
And your hate for them will chew you up and spit you out

You'll never kill our will to be free, to be free
You'll never kill our will to be free, to be free
You'll never kill our will to be free, to be free
Inside our minds we hold, hold the key

Excellent taste Ron'n, I've been a fan of Maria since the 70s.

Baggy -- only recently discovered the lady -- but my musical taste has been and is varied -rather than fixed - strongly jazz/blues influenced with a big dash of good, pop/soul/rock recognising 90% of what has been recorded even by the best is sh-t -- which is why I enjoyed I-Tunes -- you can select the the best and forget the dross-- expensive but it avoids sh-t
