Title: What did you call that Irish Heavy Metal Band in the 80's
Post by: Maroon Heaven on April 25, 2007, 02:26:17 PM
Made a video on the back of a lorry, and drove it up and down a run way some where.

Think they were from Kilcock or Leixlip.

P*ss off MH, they're Dubs and are not from Kildare. Think Joe Elliot was their manager/producer.

Well they have some relationship with Kilcock.

I think they might have played a pub there in their prime and stopped the traffic for miles.

That explains why the toured with Def Leppard. Not a bad band, there were a lot of good Irish Bands about at the time. Some terrible ones also.

The Cranberries

I'm sure they are all working in IT at present in some company or other. That video must have cost Elliot a fortune

Actually that was the Derby festival in Kildare Town, they had been number 1 in Ireland for 3 weeks and just entered the UK top 20. They were the headline act the Sunday night and as it was a free gig there was close to 5000 in the square. This was all before the by-pass, the traffic queue went back 6 miles to Monastrevin and about 2 miles towards Newbridge...

These boys are just about Heavy Metal, more pop rock.

Still a good metal scene in Ireland now, some fine bands on the go. Era Vulgaris, Mael Mordha, The Answer, Million Dollar Reload have released some fine albums of late.
