    Orla, from Dublin. Been workin' it on YouTube for a decade before her "debut" album this year.

    Charted Top 5 while she supported her bestie dodie on tour, instead of promoting it.

  8. The early '90s were a heady time in Ireland. The country was opening up and there was hope for the future. This was reflected in much different styles of music and bands coming up and being seen.

    Skinky Fia, decent as it is was a wee bit disappointing after the masterclass that was A Hero's Death. I'll forgive though as Grian was born in my home town. Brilliant live band

    Republic of loose - You know it. Funk/soul pop. They split a few years ago. This sounds like Steely Dan.

    Urge everyone to give The Murder Capital a listen. Their debut album When I Have Fears is stunning.

    Well, he was Northern Irish and that's the UK but Gary Moore moved to Dublin and played with Irish Bands like Skid Row and Thin Lizzy

    Two samples, first in blues:

    That Petrol Emotion (Very different than the Undertones and I agree that I like some of their stuff better than anything by the Undertones)
    Thin Lizzy
    The Waterboys
    My Bloody Valentine (Are they not considered Irish? I believe they formed in Dublin, even though their members born elsewhere)
    Blue in Heaven (I agree with the post above...I have both of their records and they are fantastic, and obscure. Their bass heavy sound is great)

    Aoife Nessa Francis. Spooky, 70s style folk pop.

    I mistook her voice for that of American singer Maureen McGovern's, when I saw a documentary about Irish-American history, The Irish in America. That song is "Paddy's Lamentation."
