Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!
on 2 November 1999
I went on a business trip to Dublin a wee while ago and, as I usually do when I visit a country for the first time, picked up a random selection of CDs of local/national songwriters at the airport. This CD was one of them.
'Natives' is a perfect snapshot of life as we (unfortunately) know it today : it starts as "with all our languages, we can't communicate..". How true.
There is humour, dark humour, Irish humour and a lot of home truths to boot.
You will laugh (Delirium Tremens), cry (Ride on), won't know whether to laugh or cry (Joxer goes to Stuttgart).
Well worth the punds.
