Irish Times, 17th April 2000

“Saw them in the Olympia theatre in Dublin in 1999 0r 2000, my memory’s a bit dodgy. I remember Paddy coming on stage and people gasping and calling him Jerry Garcia. Some wag in the audience shouted “what’s with the beard Paddy?” to which he replied, “does hair not grow in Ireland?” Which I thought was a damn good answer. He also told the audience that he had some new tunes but that he thought we might prefer to hear the ones we were familiar with. Wendy wasn’t with them but Neil Conti was back on drums and his playing particularly on Prisoner of the Past, which I think was the last song, was sensational. Some fans were disappointed that they didn’t do King of Rock and Roll but they did nearly everything else.”

Prisoner of the Past, sproutnet discussion board
