    Default Cork Rock - New Book

    I see a new Book has come out re the history of rock music in Cork, from Rory Gallagher, onto the likes of The Franks, Sultans, Microdisney and beyond

    And there is a political "slant" to this ... bet ya didn't know that Green Party Senator Dan Boyle once played in a Band called Blueprint, named after the 1973 Rory Gallagher Album - seems to be mentioned in the Book

    I was leafin' through this in town and it looked very interesting. I immediately looked up the Burning Embers as I remember meeting them walking up the street in Cork around '88 ( as a kid ) and there is a piece on them.

    It does sound interesting ... must have an aul sconse at it myself

    Incidentally .... people were attempting to bring out a CD on Cork Rock Music which was fairly comprehensive ... far as I remember they pretty much got consent from everyone to incude a Track 'cept the Rory Gallagher Estate and that caused probs to include a Gallagher Track

    I wonder was such a CD ever released after ... was a few years back, maybe City of Culture year and after

    wasn't Sean O'Hagan in Microdisney as well with Cathal Coughlan?
    I think he was in a band called High Llamas after that

    Yep, 3 good ones there. Chymera seems to be doing well for himself.

    And John Daly, though he's based in Galway afaik.
