Burgeonmaster Nialler9* posted on the Facebook campaign to get Jape‘s Phil Lynnot to the top spot on 25 December. The song, recently faved by Hot Press towers’ powers in the OxJam issue, is one of the sweetest tracks from Richie Egan’s recent Ritual album and depicts Philo looking over Dublin during a lunar eclipse. Lovely stuff and a wonderful tribute to the mainstay of Irish rock.
Join the campaign group on Facebook (if you must!) or even better, get to the savage Tripod gig on 18 December where Cap Pas Cap and The Vinny Club go head-to-head against the Crumlin header himself. That’ll put some egg in your nog.
Details of Phil Lynnot single TBC.
