Product Description

CD Description

* Dublin's original Punk Rock band the Radiators from Space `issued one of the first Punk singles of the era the coruscating `Television Screen' soon transcending the genre and moving through Perfect Pop with the Tony Visconti produced `Ghostown' to the Agit Pop of 2007's Trouble Pilgrim. Their fourth Chiswick CD / Long Player `Sound City Beat' revisits their roots with a glorious jaunt through the 60s and 70s Irish Group scene.

* 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiators rock 16 May 2012
By redpete
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In this their fourth album, seminal Irish punk band The Radiators from Space have gone back to their roots. Those roots lie in the music the group's members listened to in their youth, from the Irish beat scene of the 1960s.

Sound City Beat consists of covers of songs from that era, originally played in the beat clubs and recorded by the bands of that oft-forgotten world. They are an introduction to the scene for those who don't know it, and will evoke many memories for those who do. Yet The Radiators give a fresh and punk-infused interpretation to each track, and this album truly does rock.

This is a great album in its own right, and also, together with the copious sleeve notes from Ted Carroll and from Philip Chevron (of The Radiators and The Pogues), unlocks a treasure trove of music history for further listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest Cask Aged Whiskey 13 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
I came to this via a love of the Pogues and a curiosity of what Phil Chevron was doing. Blimey this is the best thing I have heard in years. A modern twist on the lost classics of yesterday. If you like guitar lead pop music then this is the pinnacle. I never thought anyone could possibly make "Gloria" sound fresh and exciting after all this time. Its such a hackneyed old tune and a staple of every three chord bar band. The Radiators take it, shake it and make it sound new again. Best thing is that great as Gloria is here there are 17 other equally as good or not better tracks alongside it. Good old value for money. Do yourself a favour; chain yourself to the Radiators.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosts... 30 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My record of the year so far by a distance - one one level an enthralling, nuggets-like, encapsulation of what was happening on the Irish rock music scene from the mid-60s until the dawn of the 70s. And on a totally different level, an articulate and highly critical commentary on present day Ireland. Remarkable really, given that virtually every piece of music on the album is at least 40 years old.

If you remember the originals, this CD will bring back a host of memories. Of nights in the Five Club, the Moulin Rouge, Club A Go Go and Sound City, listening to bands like Skid Row, Thin Lizzy, Taste, The Orange Machine, The Sugar Shack, Eire Apparent, Andwellas Dream and Grannies Intentions, to mention just a few. Ghosts a-plenty can be found here too, from major stars like Phil Lynott and Rory Gallagher, to local heroes such as Dermot Woodfull and Andy Dunne. All of whom have departed this life since the original tracks were produced. Sadly missed every one.

However to see this CD only as a tribute album would be an injustice, and fail to take account of the fire that still burns in the hearts of Phil Chevron, Pete Holidai, Steve Rapid and their compadres in the Radiators. For me, Sound City Beat is a half-sibling (at least) to the fabulous Ghostown, firing several well-directed exocet missiles at issues such as post-Celtic Tiger impoverishment, forced emigration, church scandals, financial irregularities and the break-up of traditional communities. But it never gets carried away with itself and makes its point without any pretentiousness.

A big thank you to Ace Records who make it possible for bands like The Radiators to produce and market work of this calibre.
