Not had much guitar stuff for a while so here is a blast of mid-80’s Power Pop / Indie from Ireland’s very own Cactus World News, who didn’t quite make it as big as their compatriot’s, U2. From 1986 and the follow up to “The Bridge” (also on here) with Chris Kimsey rocking the acoustic riff and the layered chorus with big drums and some wonky guitar licks. Off the album “Urban Beaches.”
B-side is a dramatic, piano led instrumental called, “Cashen Bay Strand” all affected guitar tones and a nod to the grandiose sound of Ultravox at their height. Engineered by Mark Freegard.
ALL Cactus (should it be Cacti ?) World News Stuff has been re-upped /replanted!
