They deliver 18 reinventions of songs from Rory Gallagher's Taste, Thin Lizzy, Van Morrison's Them, Horslips, Andwella's Dream, Skid Row, Eire Apparent and more arcane artists Peter Adler & the Next in Line, The Creatures and Orange Machine and more.
The music ranges from beat group melodic to twangsville guitar to psych pop and folk rock all brought into the 21st Century by Radiators founding members Phil Chevron, Pete Holidai and Steve Averill.
Guesting on the record are some luminaries from the original era, Terry Woods from Phil Chevron's other band The Pogues, Henry McCullough of Eire Apparent and a CV that spans The Grease Band to Wings and Eamon Carr, erstwhile drummer with Horslips who gives a beautiful reading of Phil Lynott's Dublin lyrics.
The CD comes equipped with a lavish 16 page booklet with an introductory note from our man on the spot Ted Carroll and a highly informative and moving paean to the era in Phil's epic history of the music of the times. All of this comes wrapped in a superbly designed cover by Steve Averill, the man behind all those U2 sleeves.
So this record hits a lot of buttons and will garner interest from 60s Beat Group and Psych Pop collectors, the 70s Punk Rockers, Pogues fans and anyone with any interest in music from Ireland that doesn't necessarily go tiddly aye.
