Fatima Mansions, the band, as LFD mentions were from Cork. However Fatima Mansions, the housing estate (the inspiration for the name?) was definitely in Dublin
That'll be why I got confused as to where they came from.

One of my favourite Irish albums is the brilliant Miss Mauger by Operating Theatre not sure if they were from Dublin.

GDU, I had the, er, pleasure of seeing the Frames about five years ago, and I'm pretty sure they did it that night. Although I did spend a fair chunk of the gig in the bar.

The Frames do covers of loads of songs at their gigs, from the sublime to the nursery rhyme

The shame.
I'm sure I outed myself earlier on this thread. They played their new album from start to finish, then tagged on the hits'n'covers at the end.
The sameyness of the songs and his 'intense' sincerity in his delivery was easily outdone by the scarily over-the-top adoration by his fans (they seemed to be more 'Glen' fans than Frames fans).
Even some of my friends became unrecognisable freaks.

He's been pretty droll any time I've seen him (but humour is kind of a personal thing)

I'm not doubting his droll sense of humour, although between songs all I could hear was screams of "Glen!!!"

Where are the best places to get bladdered in Belfast?

They are many and varied, Lieutenant.
The place is Temple-Bar Lite now since the end of hostilities with pissed-up stag / hen English people wandering around in large groups mostly good-natured, it must be said.
Needless to say I preferred it the way it was only without the random sectarian murders, of course.It's pretty happening if you're the sort of person who enjoys discos (I know, I know, I'm an old fart but I refuse to call a place where some trumpet plays CD's in order for people to drink WKD and dance to bleepity-bleep a club

Anyway, there's always the best venue in the country, which has live music most nights where luminaries like us can hang out and drink the band's beer rider while they're onstage.
There are spare rooms at Tomato towers should any of you chaps manage to make it over the non-existant border some weekend.

Heh, that's some guilt complex you got goin' on there.
Don't sweat it, I've been doing it for years.
Hope to see you there soon too.

Border-schmorder.
You know it doesn't exist, I know it doesn't exist.
Even Dessie O'Hare, the Border Goose, has retrained for a new job.

It only exists in peoples <sniff> hearts.
If only we could live in peace.
Like.

Dessie O'Hare- for fox's sake?

Gusty, I think we have the making of a deal. Ye persuade Rocky Devalera, Milkboy, Shay Stadium and Mong the drummer out of retirement for one last Rhythm kings gig at the Empire, and I'll personally hand over the keys to Stormont as we move on to the newly federated Republic of Yugoirlandia [Wink]

Failing that, I will try to get to the glamarama soon.

The thing is, I don't even LIKE bacardi.

Meant to add for Shane that the etymology of spide comes from Spiderman.Not sure aynone knows why, but it's common parlance among non-spides.

If I remember right, it started after young ballbags moved on from Spencers' 20-pleaters to those fucking awful checked jeans that looked a bit like the bottom half of a Spiderman costume.

I went on a few epic bar tours over Christmas in town - I clearly don't know anywhere in Belfast any more. The back bar in Lavery's looks more like a sauna. Even the pub near my house has been closed due to a vigorous disagreement from some local hoods over a barring.

Not some local Finns or Turks because they used the wrong sort of birches in the sauna bar? [Wink]

A superb theory, Mr.W-UB, and quite possibly correct.
Should have let me know you were in town over Xmas.


Lavery's back bar fucking felt like a sauna tonight. I crept out for a crafty pint as a really nice geezer called Richard from Belle and Sebastian was DJ'ing in our gaff, so there wasn't much for me to do.

The thing is, I don't even LIKE bacardi.

Hahaha, if it's free, we'll drink it.

kila are lazy fusion shit. If they were any good they'd play it properly.

I've been to see them now and I marvel at how right I was.

"Lets play a badly tradded up version of pachelbels cannon."

lazy wanky shite.
