Most are good apart from U2 & Snow Patrol (I like early stuff though ); but they are just wanks in general)
Good irish bands I can think of just now are The Thrills, Gary Moore...**** I guess they arent really that many that Ive heard of there will be more just cant think of top of my head right now. But Irish bands are not so bad

It depends what you mean by "Good Irish Band." If you mean Good Irish Bands as actual band from Ireland then Rory Gallagher, Thin Lizzy, U2, & The Cranberries - the only ones I can think of know. But if you mean Good Irish Bands for playing Irish Folk Music then the band to check out is Orthodox Celts, and they're not even Irish, they're Serbian. A Good Irish Band (but not actually an Irish band on the technicality for being fictional movie band) is The Commitments from the movie The Commitments. In the movie they're a Blue Eye Soul band from Dublin.

You should check out the band,Orthodox Celts on Youtube.

Yeah think so I dont know much about their background I just used to really like the album 'So Much For The City' years ago when I was into Stereophonics and mostly just bland music. I havent listened to them in years as I have moved on to other things but I might dig it out and give it a listen. I also bought another album of theirs but never really listened to it all the way through- 'Let's Bottle Bohemia'. So what other music do u like?

Oh yeah I forgot about Rory Gallagher...how could I lol. As for U2 their early stuff is good up till about Achtung Baby they started to go ****. What Ive found with U2 is that I just cant listen to their stuff or appreciate it just simply for what they are now. Thin Lizzy I totally forgot about too. Sorry mate but The Cranberries suck big time.. & Im tempted to download Orthodox Celts.. Serbians playing Irish Folk Music??? I need to hear it!

I read about Rory in guitar magazines long before I actually heard of him, (like they say the reputation preceeds the man) Fender made an awesome replica of his Guitar,

I love U2 when they first came out, but lost interest same as you with Achtung, Baby, but I like some of the newer stuff.

Cranberries were a throw-away, no need to apolgize, I couldn't think of any more bands, still I do like some of their songs like Dreams and Linger.

someone mention Irish heritage so here is my list

Irish Heritage

The Real Irish:
Seamus Tansey - Irish flute
Seamus Ennis - uilleann pipes, penny whistle, mouth music
Turlough O'Carolan - some of his work are transcribe to guitar and are worth hearing

Scotch-Irish (Scots-Irish) Americans:
Elvis Presley
Johnny Cash
Eddie Cochran
Merle Haggard

Irish-Catholic Americans:
Black 47 - NYPD Irish rock band

Irish-Liverpudians:
George Harrison
Paul McCartney

I didn't want to stray from the topic but while one the subjuect of Irish bands let's not forget
Bands from Scotland!:
The Rezillos - the first and best Punk band in the UK during the 70's
Big Country - In A Big Country is one of the best one hit wonders in America during the 80's
Tanahill Weavers - the best for Celtic instrumental music.

Can believe no one mentioned Therapy?



One band that deserves to be mentioned are JJ72. It's a shame they split up because they never got the recognition they deserved.

One of the guys at my local record store gave me the album Nurse by them. I haven't listened to it. Am I missing out?

Nurse was about the only decent thing they did.

After that they became this turgid alt rock/ metal hybred ruining covers of Husker Du & Wire songs on a regular basis.

Nurse is ok, Troublegum is a better bet though. Anything after that though is a bit hit or miss. Suicide Pact - You First would be my next choice.
