As it’s nearly the end of St.Patrick’s Day, I hope my Irish friends have had a good ‘un. So here is the obligatory Irish band post and still keeping it Pre 1985.
From Wiki “Silent Running are an Northern Irish rock band, who emerged from the Belfast punk scene and were originally called The Setz before changing musical direction in 1982. The original band members were Richard Collett (bass), Peter Gamble (vocals), Tony Scott (guitars) and Ian Gault (drums). Prior to signing to EMI the band recruited George Beavis on keyboards.”
So this was from the debut album on the major EMI label and Mike got hold of the US 12″ (I was quite a fan at the time so I’ll have to dig out the stuff I’ve got, the album and few twelves) Top notch production from Pete Walsh and an ever so slighlty (well quite a lot actually!) Simple Minds sound. Still like the keyboards and general prog rock elements. Album track, “Home Is Where The Heart Is,” is here too as a bit of a taster being the opening track of the album. Camp, but still love it.
