Tipperary Mercy

Apparently there isn’t much cross over between fans of English post-punk and the readers of this blog…

Wire performing the song “Mercy” from their album “Chairs Missing”. I believe this was from a German TV show called “RockPalast” and originally broadcast in 1979.

“Snow storms forecast imminently in areas Dogger, Viking, Moray, Forth, and Orkney.”

Also, Colin Newman’s attire does give a bit of a clue as to where I got my (lack of) fashion sense.

One thought on “Tipperary Mercy

  1. Wow! Colin’s playing an Ovation Breadwinner. I can’t remember the last time I saw one of these. I was in high school in that same era and I played an Ovation Magnum bass. The guitarists in my band had an Ovation Preacher and an Ovation Viper. We were probably the only band ever that played three Ovation solidbodies.

    BTW, My wife and I are enjoying a Tipperary No. 1 (No. 3?) right this moment. Not sure it will make it into heavy rotation, but interesting.
