Kid Creole and the Coconuts' album 'Tropical Gangsters' is a vibrant fusion of Caribbean rhythms and pop sensibilities that captivates with its infectious energy. Released in 1982, this record showcases Kid Creole's unique blend of storytelling and musical prowess, transporting us to a world of tropical escapades and urban adventures. With hits like 'Stool Pigeon' and 'Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy', the album remains a timeless classic, celebrated for its catchy tunes and lively performances. 'Tropical Gangsters' continues to be a treasure in the realm of eclectic music.
One of the best gigs I've been to - so full of vibrancy and sheer musical fun!

Milt Jackson — vibraphone
John Coltrane — tenor saxophone
Hank Jones — piano
Paul Chambers — bass
Connie Kay — drums
What wonderful music. I love Trane’s sax, but that vibraphone is absolutely stunning; only instrument I was taught at school was xylophone (I’m pretty rubbish at it) and when I hear the vibes played in such a magical way I can only sit back in awe and admiration.

“Smoke and Strong Whiskey" is an album by Irish folk singer Christy Moore. Released in 2001, it showcases Moore's unique blend of traditional Irish music and contemporary folk. The songs on the album explore themes of love, loss, and social commentary, delivered with Moore's emotive vocals and skilled guitar playing. With its poignant lyrics and captivating melodies, "Smoke and Strong Whiskey" is a superb addition to Moore's celebrated discography.



How's it going there everybody?
You're very welcome to this evening's cabaret
I want to thank you for the trouble you're after taking
To come and hear me play
I know the effort that you make and all the trouble that you have to take
When you decide you're gonna go and see a show
Your wife says Oh not Christy Moore, we've seen him loads of times before
And we're going to miss Gay Byrne on the Late Late Show


Well you are welcome welcome everyone
Special branch you're on the run
Fine Gael, Fianna Fail or Sinn Fein
When the elections are all over
We'll all be pushing up clover
And everyone in the graveyard votes the same
