4.0 out of 5 stars Housemartins carrying on, 22 Oct 2001
The people who grinned themselves to death is another deceiving set of songs from Mr Heaton and friends. From the pacy title track to I cant put my finger on it through to the final track Build we have a set of songs that outwardly seem just an exercise in wordplay, when we examine what lies behind this exterior we find emotional depth, sincerity and truth coupled with some finely crafted tunes and melodies.
This is wonderufl stuff from the band, it is well produced, written and constructed and every track is an experience. Buy it, listen to it and then really listen to it, you wont have it off for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful work which captures Dublin as it was at the time, 14 Oct 2001
This review is from: Strumpet City (Paperback)
This book is a work of genius. It is compelling and historically accurate with some wonderful characters woven through the tale. Plunkett will not write a beter book and not many will. I read it at least once a year if I can and it is among the best if not the best book I have ever read.
