    The Psychotic Reaction

    Cathal Coughlan (Microdisney/The Fatima Mansions) – Vocals
    Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) – Guitar
    Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues) – Bass Guitar
    Eamon Carr (Horslips) – Drummer
    Jeremy Hickey (RSAG) – Drummer
    (I’m going for the double drummer – full on Adam & the Ants Burundi effect)
    Donnacha Costello – Vintage Synths/Electronic effects (check out last year’s “Mouvements” if you haven’t already done so)
    (Brigid Mae Power, Lisa O’Neill & Katie Kim on backing vocals)

    Named after “Psychotic Reaction”, one of the greatest garage rock anthems of them all by San Diego’s Count Five, fronted by Crumlin’s John “Sean” Byrne. In deference to the origin of the band’s name, The Psychotic Reaction will have to don full length high-collared vampire capes. (I may have thought about this too much)

      1. PMCD

        This from the man who wanted Gallagher and Marr in his band!!! Now, now, it’s my band! SCREAMS In FULL ON PETER GRANT (in Song Remains the Same) mode: “Talk to me, they’re my band, nobody messes with my band, have some self respect, they’re my band.”

        1. Bertie "the inexplicable pleasure" Blenkinsop

          I think I take particular exception because she was such an awful bass player!

          Feck it, I’m having Kate Bush so :)

      2. myfinger@memes

        Cathal and Kevin, yeah…2 good shouts…
        …but when it comes to Cait I’m with Bertie.

  21. AMOS

    The ultimate Irish supergroup – I would pay good money to see this line-up:

    Moya Brennan on vocals, Declan O’Rourke on vocals and guitar
    Neil Hannon on piano, lyrics
    David Holmes on keyboards and decks
    Martin Hayes on fiddle
    Emmaline Duffy-Fallon (of the great “Engine Alley”!) on drums
    Joe Wall (“The Stunning”) on bass

    Their name: “Tonight We Fly”

  22. my2fingerz@memes

    Me on bongos.
    Your granny on drugs.
    Ridiculous haircuts and no talent…

    What could go wrong?

  23. my2fingerz@memes

    The debacle is disingenuous
    The debate is over.

    I should write a limerick, to placate myself.
    But I won’t.

    Nothing rhymes with ‘swivel’.
    -Your turn…

  24. Nigel

    James Joyce on 20th century postmodernism, Eamon De Buitléar on to The Waters And The Wild, Marian Finucane on the radio, Eamon Dunphy on John Giles, Saoirse Ronan on that Galway Girl video, Sean Kelly on a bike, and The Lone Ranger on Trigger.

  25. memes

    There are only seven things you should fight about publically on the Internet.
    Three of them are numeracy, and I forget the other one.

  26. memes

    Wait a minute…
    my drug dealer wants to be in the band too. She doesn’t play an instrument but she’s fond of a fiddle and the grass is free.
    I just roll with it.
    Why would I do anything differently?

    1. lickmyballzack@memes

      Why am I in fuppin moderation?
      This a a road of boris. I not ever chirese. I am a numbel.

  27. iloveyoutoo@memes

  29. iloveviperhiggins@memes

    Google ‘smart people with the surname Higgins’

    You won’t get any results until you update your browser.

    Only messing. The Viper is DEADLY.
    I love that guy.

    He can be my drummer.

  30. whoisviperhiggins@memes

    I can’t stop laughing at the ‘Larry On Drums…’ part of the title.

    It’s like saying, ‘Here’s my 5yr old niece… she’s on lead vocals’

    She writes the lyrics too.

      1. bertie "The Inexplicable Pleasure" blenkinsop

        I think his drumming on “stuck in a moment” is excellent… it kinda drifts over the top of the song.
        I told him that in person a few months ago. (clunk name drop!)
        “ah, I must be your favourite drummer” he laughed.
        “sorry, it’s Clem from Blondie” says I.
        “that’s cool, he’s better than me!”

        true but dull story.

        he’s a gent :)

        1. know man is an island

          I’ll have a listen again

          He’s not a bad drummer but I always find the suggestion that he’s the most “musical” in the group somewhat risible. As if being able to keep time is the only thing a musician needs to really master.

          1. scottser

            if i may.
            unless you’re incredibly proficient technically, a drummer’s most saleable skill is his ability to groove, to maintain what they call a ‘pocket’. quite a few drummers have it – phil rudd, hal blaine, john bonham etc. larry has it, in spades.

  31. me, me @ memes. why did you never get that before now?

    Im not even gay, but I kinda wish I was.
    it feels wrong to suck myselfboff like this, with nobody watching…and not being vay or anything.

    Its not right.
