Come Out Ye Black And Tans

Come Out Ye Black And Tans

by Paddy Reilly

You would probably not get away with performance of this now, but it's still one of the great rebel songs. This stirring version is by part-time Dubliner Paddy Reilly.

Arthur McBride & The Recruiting Sergeant

Arthur McBride & The Recruiting Sergeant

by Andy Irvine & Paul Brady

Paul Brady's signature tune is the standout track on one of the great contemporary Irish folk albums. Although he's not actually on the track, this is the second version of Arthur McBride that Andy Irvine put his name to. But, where Planxty's version is a rowdy and boisterous rebel tune, Brady transforms the song into something more akin to a childhood memory, all beautiful and nostalgic.

The Auld Triangle

The Auld Triangle

by The Dubliners

The most beautiful Irish song in the English language was never interpreted better than this acapella rendition. The power of Luke Kelly's vocals and the majesty of the group's harmonies make it one of my all-time favourite pieces of music. Enjoy!

The Patriot Game

The Patriot Game

by Dominic Behan

Dominic was Brendan Behan's younger brother, and he shared that writer's literary bent and fierce republicanism. "The Patriot Game", his greatest composition, was often rendered in a beautiful, hushed tone by Liam Clancy, who probably introduced Bob Dylan to the tune in the early '60s. Dylan adapted the melody and tone for "With God on Our Side". That said, Behan's own version is a fine example of his rugged vocals and impish humour.

Raggle Taggle Gypsy / Tabhair Dom Do Lábh

Raggle Taggle Gypsy / Tabhair Dom Do Lábh

by Planxty

From now until the end, I've decided to jam exclusively from my first musical love, traditional Irish music. Having made this decision, it's only fitting to begin with my introduction to the magic of bouzouki-counterpoint and 17th Century harping tunes: the unrivalled, inimitable Planxty.

Frankie Teardrop

Frankie Teardrop

by Suicide

Number One! And although it's unlistenable, Suicide's signature song is, for my money, one of rock's great masterpieces. Contemporary "Horrorcore" artists armed with unthinkably sophisticated technology and wads of cash have never even grazed the unspeakable horror Alan Vega and Marty Rev captured with a mic, a toy organ and a broken drum box. Whether it's that scream or the sound collage of shifting static and tinkling jack-in-the-box that Rev uses to portray Frankie's descent into Hell, there's just nothing like it in the world.

Nick's Boogie

Nick's Boogie

by Pink Floyd

Although "The Piper at The Gates of Dawn" is peerless, the unique improvisatory spirit of the early Floyd is best captured on their first recording session with producer Joe Boyd (later of Nick Drake fame). The band spontaneously composed two tracks in the session, a blistering version of their signature tune Interstellar Overdrive, and this moody slice of dissonant psychedelia. Tune in, turn on, drop out.

She Has A Way

An out-take from "The Mr. Tambourine Man" sessions. What's so striking is how perfectly formed their sound was already, considering how pervasive it remains. This wouldn't sound out of place on the C86 comp.
