You May Remember This


Bawl – Glen Campbell Nights

Continuing our series of underrated Irish music since 1960, reader John Lawrence eulogises about Dublin indie guitar heroes Bawl, who were led by ace tunesmith Mark Cullen (above left).

John writes:

“Year Zero (1996) for me, is right up there as one of the best Irish albums ever made. From the very start to the finish Year Zero is a triumph of creativity in terms of observational songwriting and soaring guitar/drum combinations.”

Bawl had to change their name to Fixed Stars for legal reasons, and singer Mark Cullen went on to form Pony Club and to collaborate with the Lightning Seeds‘s Ian Broudie.

Nick says: Mark of distinction.
