The Subterraneans – Game Show

Continuing our series of underrated Irish music since 1960, reader axelf makes the case for 1980s/’90s act The Subterraneans, who comprised Derek Barter (bass, vocals), Paddy Brady (guitar), Brian Murphy (keyboards) and Colm Coughlan (drums).

Game Show was produced by Pete Holidai (of The Radiators fame) and released by Mother Records in 1991.

“I heard this gem on MT USA wayyyy back. It was a staple of the show for many months.”

Nick says: The name of the game.

    Not on MT USA Waaay back you didn’t…
    MT USA ran from ’84 until ’87, four years before Game Show was released, following Vincent Hanleys death in April ’87.

        Yes….I think so too Nick.

        Actually, might not be a bad idea for one of your competitions…bands that achieved notoriety due to appearances on such Irish shows.
        MT, No Disco, Nighthawks etc….?
